A novel that marked the 20th century,The Group by American author Mary McCarthy was released in 1963. Eight girls fresh from university at the famous Vassar College, each struggling with her own frustrations, find themselves burned in their high hopes. Intertwined with the problems of Roosevelt’s America, the group in fact is caught between the contradictions of emancipation in the difficult search for an identity that truly recognizes each one as a person outside. The author also highlights the responsibility of men in the failures of these educated women who are entrapped in old cages. Crushed by the sexual, existential, identity and political problems of a dissatisfied society, the former Vassar students embody a deep and collective unease. It is a novel cruel, though ironic novel. Terribly bitter, and utterly unheard. (@GiuliGaleotti)
