The reception of Giorgio Bassani’s work in Anglophone countries reveals a discrepancy between America and Europe. The reasons for the warm American and tepid British reception of Bassani will be addressed and Tim Parks’ work as a mediator will be investigated. Parks’ study of Il giardino dei Finzi-Contini and the controversy caused by his specific reading will illuminate why Bassani’s rendition of history and predilection for North American culture have shaped the British reception of his work.

Abstract

The reception of Giorgio Bassani’s work in Anglophone countries reveals a discrepancy between America and Europe. The reasons for the warm American and tepid British reception of Bassani will be addressed and Tim Parks’ work as a mediator will be investigated. Parks’ study of Il giardino dei Finzi-Contini and the controversy caused by his specific reading will illuminate why Bassani’s rendition of history and predilection for North American culture have shaped the British reception of his work.
