New PDF release: La piccola commedia: Novelle giovanili (Italian Edition)

By Arthur Schnitzler

Scritte fra il 1885 e il 1907 e in gran parte inedite in Italia, le novelle qui raccolte ci riportano alla fase aurorale di un itinerario artistico. Ci sono già tutti i temi che Schnitzler elaborerà in forma più ampia nelle opere successive: l’intreccio di amore e morte, los angeles casualità dei destini, il gioco, il duello, i tradimenti, le infedeltà coniugali, los angeles gelosia, il gusto del travestimento, l’incessante oscillare fra realtà e finzione, los angeles ricerca di emozioni e sentimenti perduti.
Trascorrendo da un registro all’altro, Schnitzler alterna los angeles malinconia del ricordo allo scandaglio dell’animo, l’analisi dell’angustia borghese al capriccio del divertissement, e ci consegna una galleria di personaggi che non sanno ancora di essere terribilmente schnitzleriani: mariti traditi, mogli fedifraghe, artisti persi dietro alle loro creazioni, cocotte d’alto bordo, aristocratici viveur, studenti squattrinati. Sullo sfondo – ma è uno sfondo così pervasivo da impregnare di sé ogni storia –, una Vienna tutta presa a officiare i suoi riti nei luoghi deputati (il teatro, il caffè, los angeles sala da ballo, il Prater, l’osteria dei sobborghi), affatto ignara, si direbbe, dei primi scricchiolii.
Così come il suo amico Hugo von Hofmannsthal, che a diciotto anni scriveva liriche e prose di goethiana sapienza, Schnitzler ci offre il rarissimo esempio di una giovinezza in cui los angeles maturità è un dato acquisito e le virtù più ardue da raggiungere – quali sobrietà e incisività – sembrano appartenere da sempre alla fisiologia dell’autore.
"La piccola commedia" apparve in step with los angeles prima volta nel 1932.

Download e-book for iPad: Das Leben ist kurz: Zwölf Bagatellen (German Edition) by Martin Mosebach

By Martin Mosebach

Planvoll oder zufällig, hier kommen sie zusammen, Menschen von allen Ecken und Enden des Lebens: eine Malerin, die über den Aufbau eines Stilllebens (Kiesel und Koralle, Schmetterling, Perle und Taubenei) mit einer Freundin streitet; ein Junge auf einem Fahrrad, glücklich dahinrasend wie außerhalb der Zeit; eine Liebhaberin des Weins, die sich auf dem Sterbebett endlich die kostbare, seit Jahrzehnten aufgesparte Flasche bringen läßt; ein Mann vor einem Spalt im Vorhang einer Umkleidekabine, gebannt erlebend, wie sich der Spalt erst mit einem warmen Farbton füllt, dann mit gerundeten Formen, dann mit dunklen Linien - eines Beins?, eines hands? -, die sich vor seinen Augen hin und her bewegen, "langsam und schwimmend wie ein Wels am Grund eines Flusses".

Die Miniaturen dieses Buchs erfassen die Welt in Augenblicken. Sie sind Erzählpracht auf engstem Raum, lassen im Handumdrehen Szenen und Figuren entstehen, und so kurz sie sind, so vielgestaltig sind sie in Darstellung und Ton - komisch oder ernst, romanhaft ausgreifend oder dramatisch oder satirisch, dann wieder gelöst, beruhigt. Nur in Sinnlichkeit und Intensität gleichen sich die winzigen Progressionen in der Zeit, die Martin Mosebach beschreibt; es sind die Augenblicke, die unser Leben vor allem ausmachen, die Augenblicke, in denen guy, beglückt oder überrascht wie beim Lesen dieser Geschichten auch, etwas von seiner Kürze und Unwiederholbarkeit begreift.

Bandoulière, parce-que: « À l'école de los angeles poésie, on n'apprend pas, on se bat .»(Léo Ferré) « Tous les mots, brisés d'un coup, tombent à terre avec un bruit de corps mou qui chute. Je les gather en désordre et les fourre vite fait dans ma poche. Aussitôt ils se regroupent "ÉCRIRE C'EST UN DUEL" ». Je souris en les regardant, hébété, vidé, puis je retourne me coucher. Le travail ordinaire, aliénant et subalterne attendra. Au bout de quelques secondes, je m'endors enfin. »
