Neera's refiguring of hysteria as nervosismo in Teresa (1886) and L'Indomani (1890)

Abstract

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.
