Thanks to Rosa Mucignat of Kings College for this thorough and astute review of Killing the Moonlight in Comparative Literature: "Killing the Moonlight is a brilliant fusion of literature, art, architecture, politics, and history that challenges and rewards the reader with its voracious and wide-ranging scope. Scappettone’s re-positioning of modernism in Venice enriches our understanding of individual authors, revealing unexpected connections and re-contextualizing more familiar ones, and provides a fascinating multidisciplinary approach to Venice and its myth. This book makes an important contribution not only to modernist studies but also to wider theoretical debates about the relationship between real and imagined places, the temporal dislocation that characterizes sites of historical memory and how they can be reclaimed for the present.”
