Italy has been a long history of short story writing, going back to boccaccio and most of Italy's major writers produced collections of novels. One of the greatest exponents is Giovanni Verga. Verga embraced "Verismo", the Italian form of French "Naturalism", where authorial comment and description is at minimum. He creates an atmosphere and emotions in his writing which trascend the world of his characters, mainly Sicilian fishermen and peasants, and which give it a lyrical almost epic character. Althought Verga writes about a small enclosed world, his work has universal appeal, touching the heart without lecturing or sentimentalising.
