Mitchell, Katharine (2010) Neera's refiguring of hysteria as nervosismo in Teresa (1886) and L'Indomani (1890). Italianist, 30 (supple). pp. 101-122. ISSN 0261-4340Full text not available in this repository. (Request a copy from the Strathclyde author)
In this article I argue that Neera represents her protagonists’ experiences of psychosomatic symptoms as nervosismo rather than hysteria, thus seeking to counter and readdress notions of female sexuality and eroticism as threatening and unfathomable in the collective consciousness.
