This monograph examines and analyzes the whole literary production of an author, Edmondo De Amicis (1846-1908) who is well known only for a very limited number of works, especially his best and long seller Cuore (The Heart of a Boy). But his journalist, traveller, narrator, patriot, novelist and educator produced a body of many thousand pages of works so different and so various that no scholar had tried to analyze them in full. This book, resulting from a decade of archival research, readings and travels and above all from a years-long historical researches on the journals and magazines of the times of the authors, gives an in depth study of the major and minor themes of this author, encouraging to face the least known of his works, giving a first hand analysis of his relevance in the past and in the present of Italian and European literature.
