Une imaginative and prescient autobiographique qui surgit comme un champ de ruines, une mise à nu, presque insolente et d’une incongruité quasi dadaïste de los angeles bonne vieille société irlandaise, ce roman, débuté à Dublin en 1904, puis repris à Trieste en 1914, dépeint l. a. grande fresque autobiographique d’un Joyce adolescent bousculant l’ordre scolaire et l’ordre familial pour devenir le germe d’une révolution littéraire essentielle.

Dans cette nouvelle édition de l. a. traduction commentée et annotée de Jean-Yves Cotté, quel plaisir, que dis-je quelle jouissance de se laisser embarquer par l. a. folie d’un Joyce près à exploser.

Et cette langue, succulente, ce geste de liberté. Toute une symphonie à redécouvrir de toute urgence.

Ippolito Nievo,Armando Balduino's Antiafrodisiaco per l'amor platonico (Letteratura PDF

April 5, 2018 | Classic Literary Fiction | By admin | 0 Comments

By Ippolito Nievo,Armando Balduino

ISBN-10: 1479344079

ISBN-13: 9781479344079

Prima esperienza narrativa del giovanissimo Nievo, l'Antiafrodisiaco consistent with l'amor platonico ha origine da un reale scambio di lettere con Matilde Ferrari, los angeles giovane amata dal diciannovenne scrittore, e prende forma quando il loro rapporto si interrompe bruscamente, nel 1851. Ne deriva una rivisitazione della vicenda sentimentale che, travalicando i canoni letterari dell'amore romantico, si orienta decisamente verso un linguaggio realistico, immediato, ricco di dialoghi e di frecciate sarcastiche rivolte anche a uomini e fatti del circostante ambiente padano contemporaneo. Difficile da ascrivere a un preciso genere letterario, e pur con inevitabili incertezze nel ritmo narrativo, l'Antiafrodisiaco testimonia comunque l. a. positiva, originale conclusione del noviziato letterario di Nievo, facendo già intravedere, nella specialty passionalità del protagonista e nell'efficace resa macchiettistica di alcuni personaggi, il percorso che nel giro di pochi anni porterà il suo autore alla memorabile prova delle Confessioni.

Zum a hundred. Todestag von Lew Tolstoi

Neben den großen Romanen schrieb Lew Tolstoi einzigartige Erzählungen. »Vielleicht ist es dieser melancholisch­pragmatische Grundton, der den Stoff für die heute Jungen interessant macht.« Der Spiegel »Tolstois Charaktere sind vielschichtig und undurchschaubar, im tiefsten Sinne menschlich und ebenso nahe an der Lächerlichkeit wie am Heldentum. Weil er nicht zu deuten scheint, ist Tolstoi einer der größten Psychologen; weil wir seine Figuren nicht wirklich verstehen, begreifen wir sie im Innersten.« Daniel Kehlmann
