She died in Rome at the age of 64 of breast cancer. La chiesa della solitudine , Deledda's last novel, is a semi-autobiographical depiction of a young Italian woman coming to terms with her breast cancer. A completed manuscript of the novel "Cosima" was discovered after her death and published posthumously.
The life, customs, and traditions of the Sardinian people are prominent in her writing. In her works we can recognize the influence of the verism of Giovanni Verga and, sometimes, also that of the decadentism by Gabriele D'Annunzio. In Deledda's novels there is always a strong connection between places and people, feelings and environment. The environment depicted is mostly that one harsh of native Sardinia , but it is not depicted according to regional veristic schemes neither according to the otherworldly vision by D'Annunzio, but relived through the myth.
Below is a complete list of Deledda's works: Deledda's birthplace and childhood home in Nuoro has been preserved as a museum in her honor the Museo Deleddiano. The museum consists of 10 rooms where the stages of the writer's life are reconstructed.

The author of more than four hundred short stories and more than forty novels, Grazia Deledda died on 15 August in Rome. Her talent resided notably in her microscopic analysis of the people, the feelings, and the nature of Sardinia—which she made known to a wide readership through her extensive writings.
She also influenced many Italian women writers, especially in the ways they address the role of women in patriarchal societies such as that of Southern Italy.
