Un best-seller di fine ottocento. Nello scenario di Napoli e della sua periferia De Marchi colloca la storia di un delitto. I due protagonisti, U barone e U prevete, sono entrambi esseri abbietti: l'assassino è il barone Carlo Coriolano di Santafusca, un nobile decaduto vizioso, dissoluto e dedito alle pratiche più immorali accennate, sia pure piuttosto pudicamente, nel capitolo intitolato "L'orgia" dove, tra l’altro, si legge che l’ "onda bionda e spumosa" della Sciampagna "spruzzò i seni delle ragazze" e dove "donne sdraiate e seminude [...] fumavano le loro sigarette"; ma oltre a ciò il nobile libertino è anche un darwiniano e acceso materialista, ma anche forte del suo privilegiato ruolo sociale per ritenersi al di sopra della giustizia e delle leggi dello stato. L'assassinato invece è don Cirillo, un prete ricchissimo grazie al lotto e all'usura, pure chiacchierato perché i numeri giusti per vincere al lotto li dà alla bella moglie del cappellaio... Sono in scena, insomma, due squallidi personaggi che rappresentano il peggio della nobiltà e della chiesa, gli istinti più meschini e sfrenati.

This book comprehensively covers the history of Italian crime fiction from its origins to the present. Using the concept of “moral rebellion,” the author examines the ways in which Italian crime fiction has articulated the country’s social and political changes. The book concentrates on such writers as Augusto de Angelis (1888–1944), Giorgio Scerbanenco (1911–1969), Leonardo Sciascia (1921–1989), Andrea Camilleri (b. 1925), Loriano Macchiavelli (b. 1934), Massimo Carlotto (b. 1956), and Marcello Fois (b. 1960). Through the analysis of writers belonging to differing crucial periods of Italy’s history, this work reveals the many ways in which authors exploit the genre to reflect social transformation and dysfunction.

"The Unification of Italy in 1870 heralded a period of unprecedented change. While successive Liberal governments pursued imperial ventures and took Italy into World War One on the Allied side, on the domestic front technological advance, the creation of a national transport network, the expansion of state education, internal migration to cities and the rise of political associations all contributed to the rapid expansion of the print industry and the development of new and highly diversified reading publics. Drawing on publishers'archives, letters, diaries, and printed material, this book provide the most up-to-date research into the printed media - books, magazines and journals - in Italy between 1870 and 1914. With essays on publishers and reading communities, the professionalization of the role of journalist and writer, children's literature, book illustrations, and printed media in colonial territories among others, this book is intended for those with interests in cultural production and consumption and questions of nation-formation and nationhood in and outside Italy.
