My Literary Friend, title of book gives limitless scope for imagination and seems to contain limitless possibilities. Girlfriends can be girls, teenage girls and adult women. Literature can be from 1980s to 21st century. c., "I" represents thousands of readers who, at different points in their lives, will meet different female images in literary works, and their stories can also bring different insights to readers.
"My Literary Friend" is a collection of 22 classic female images, selected from 22 classic works by famous Italian writer Masini. This is a summary of author at a high level. The second page is a famous phrase in book, and third page is a brief introduction about work and author. At same time, Fabian Neglin, winner of international gold medal in illustration, is specially invited to draw exquisite illustrations for each of them. Portraits of literary characters , plus initial names, very attractive text plus extremely characteristic portraits, five-page literary friend is a demonstration of power of women in literary works, as well as power that "My literary friend" can convey to readers.
Someone has summed up some of commonalities of these 22 female characters. Although these girlfriends date back two or three hundred years and span many countries such as England, France, and Russia, they all tell world that they are "unique, restless, and hungry for freedom." Do not passively accept any symbols imposed on them by society and time. They may not be most perfect female images, but they are all inspiring female role models. Even a little girl contains resistance to fate behind her, and in these works prejudices and fetters given to women by society in past are broken. As for "independent women in new era", which is often talked about now, in fact she existed in old era, and problems and difficulties faced by women. Over years, there seems to be something in common. When you see them, you see yourself. Taking history as a mirror is indeed very reasonable, and same is true for historical figures.
Classic literary works really need to be mentioned, promoted and read. "My literary girlfriend" is an introduction, an introduction and author's experiences after reading. Perhaps these female images invisibly helped many confused people. People, and many people, learn to be strong, learn to chase their dreams regardless of prying eyes. The author's resume is in place and classification is very complete. I hope to see more of these summaries and more direct presentations.
