Negri, Ada

 

Born Feb. 3, 1870, in Lodi; died Jan. 11, 1945, in Milan. Italian poet.

Negri was born into a working-class family. She taught in a people’s school. Negri’s poetry, for example, her collections Fate (1892) and Storms (1896), depicted for the first time in Italian poetry the life of factory workers. Her verse was written in the spirit of rebellion.

After marrying an industrialist, Negri became isolated from her natural milieu. She described her subsequent inner crisis in the collection Banishment (1914). Her later poetry lost its concern with social issues and acquired an intimate character. Negri’s poetry was popular in Russia at the beginning of the 20th century.

Al contempo la scrittrice padovana, con le sue raccolte di racconti (La fortuna, 1913; Codino, 1918; La signorina Anna, 1932), viene collocata sull'autonoma linea di sviluppo e ricerca artistica rappresentata da grandi scrittrici a lei piu o meno contemporanee, le quali solo apparentemente sembrano indugiare su forme antiquate rispetto alla sperimentalita del "canone maschile," ma che in realta esplorano consapevolmente altri modi di scrittura, altri percorsi indirizzati verso il riconoscimento di una propria personale tradizione, un proprio autonomo linguaggio, come fecero Grazia Deledda, Matilde Serao, Ada Negri, Carola Prosperi, Maria Messina.
