ITALIAN STUDIES: OTTOCENTO Ottocento OTTOCENTO By ANN CAESAR, Assistant Lecturer in Italian, University of Cambridge I. GENERAL The role publishers and publishing played in the forging of mass reading public and a national literary culture continues to attract a strong interest. The nineteen contributors to the illustrated Editori a Firenze nel secondo Ottocento, ed. 1. Porciani, F, Olschki, 1983,520 pp., divide between those who concentrate on the cultural influence exercised by publishers and those who discuss the literary product such as 'i misteri' and 'amena letteratura'. For a long overdue, scrupulous analysis of the facts and figures of the book-trade in the second half of the century, see G. Peres son, 'Editori e librai: la distribuzione dellibro tra Otto e Novecento', LCrit, 29, 1983: 73-I05, and G. Ragone, 'La letteratura e il consumo', in AA.VV., Letteratura italiana. Produzione e consumo, II, T, Einaudi, 1983, 1,060 pp. Valuable archive work has led to S. De Stefis Ciccone et al., * La stampa periodica milanese della prima meta deWOttocento. Testi e concordanze, 5 vols, Pisa, Giardini, and G. Farinelli, La pubblicistica nel periodo della Scapigliatura, Mi, IPL, 1,52 I pp., which summarizes all articles of any significance from the 186 journals published between 1860 The Year’s Work in Modern Language Studies Brill
