Italo Svevo *

a.k.a. Aron Ettore Schmitz

Author Code: TISV

Born: Dec. 19, 1861 - Trieste, Italy

Died: Sep. 13, 1928 - Motta di Livenza, Italy

From a German Jewish and Italian family, Svevo was educated at a Wurzburg boarding school and the Istituto Revoltella in Trieste. He was forced to curtail his studies when his family ran into financial difficulties in 1882. Svevo worked as a bank clerk in Vienna for twenty years and began writing while still there, contributing to periodicals and writing plays. In 1907, Svevo met James Joyce who would later encourage and support Svevo in his literary career. The two became life-long friends. In 1923, Svevo self-published La Coscienza di Zeno (The Confessions of Zeno), which, although virtually ignored at the time, became widely praised both in Italy and abroad. Svevo's work would result in his prominence in early 20th century Italian literature and has had a great influence on subsequent Italian writers. He is often referred to as the father of the modern Italian novel. Already suffering from heart problems, Svevo was involved in an auto accident that ultimately led to his death. In addition to many short stories, his works include Una Vita1892, Senilita (1898) and Una Burla Riuscita (1928 Posthumous).
