Valeria Taddei



I am interested in prose narrative and critical theory. Thanks to the full support of an Oxford-Maria Ferreras Willetts Graduate Scholarship, I am currently studying literary epiphany in early twentieth-century short stories, with a particular focus on Luigi Pirandello, James Joyce, Federigo Tozzi and Katherine Mansfield.
