Author Marsha Fazio’s new book, ‘A Discarded Daughter’, is an inspiring and informative tale of Arcangela Tarabotti’s powerful, groundbreaking feminism

Marsha Fazio, a Senior Lecturer of Renaissance Literature and Linguistics at Arizona State University, has completed her new book, “A Discarded Daughter—Arcangela Tarabotti: The Rebel Nun of Baroque Venice”: an inspiring tale of Arcangela Tarabotti’s powerful and innovative feminism in the 17th century.
Fazio invites readers to delve into her tale, writing, “In the magical world of 17th-century Venice—lacework palaces flickering in gleaming waterways, opulence and decadence, creative liberty, and political rigidity—we are astounded to find that La Serenissima’s dozens of convents housed most of the city’s well-to-do girls and women, many of whom had been locked up by force, enclosed for life with little or no recourse to ever step beyond confining walls. ‘Discarded Daughter’ delves into the rich history of Venice, providing framework for the fascinating scenario of how Arcangela Tarabotti, involuntarily cloistered in a ‘living hell,’ scaled the confines of Sant’Anna Convent through her iconoclastic texts denouncing Venetian misogyny, public and private.”
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Marsha Fazio’s captivating tale shows that powerful women transcend time and have been paving the way for modern feminism for centuries.
Informative and inspirational, Fazio “draws on Arcangela’s own words to reflect an indomitable will and prescient feminist spirit.”  On her journey, Arcangela fights for her beliefs and experiences vocational self-discovery along the way.
