Christ Stopped at Eboli
Carlo Levi, Frances Frenaye
‘We’re not Christians, Christ stopped short of here, at Eboli.’ Exiled to a remote and barren corner of Italy for his opposition to Mussolini, Carlo Levi entered a world cut off from history and the state, hedged in by custom and sorrow, without comfort or solace, where, eternally patient, the peasants lived in an age-old stillness and in the presence of death – for Christ did stop at Eboli.
"[Levi is] a sensitive and gifted writer with a great sense of style." --Alfred Kazin
