mobi Perché leggere i classici

Perché leggere i classici Pasternak's masterpiece Dr Zhivago and why Cyrano de Bergerac is the forerunner of modern day science fiction writers Learn how many odysseys The Odyssey contains and why Hemingway's Nick Adams stories are a pinnacle of twentieth century literature From Ovid to Pavese Xenophon to Dickens Gal 127th book of 2020I’ve been wanting to read this for a long time It is a book that has managed to elude me by being hard to get hold of or else expensive to get hold of I am in debt to my old university housemate who bought and gifted me this Despite wracking my brain for a Calvino related anecdote involving us I cannot think of one The only thing that comes to mind is reading my first ever Calvino Invisible Cities whilst lying on my bed in our old house in Chichester So can give only my thanks; it was worth it Italo Calvino All that can be done is for each one of us to invest our own ideal library for our classics; and I would say that one half of it should consist of books we have read and that have meant something for us and the other half of books which we intend to read and which we suppose might mean something to us We should also leave a section of empty spaces for surprises and chance discoveries Calvino writes with grace in both his fictions and his essays He is a fantastic writer in the fact I believe he is uite multifaceted and by that I also mean that my own view of him is multifaceted My lecturer referred to him once as being ‘icy’ – a term I have adopted as my own in reference to him In fact the full uote as I have uoted before in my The Baron in the Trees review “An icy postmodernist” whom one “admires than enjoys” In some cases I would agree I am in awe of If on a Winter's Night a Traveler but my enjoyment when reading it is another matter entirely Any iciness postmodernist ness is void here – what is left is Calvino at his intelligent and most graceful self The first essay is the title essay and Calvino attempts to define a ‘classic’ novel which ironically his own novels fall into in my opinion He proposes 14 definitions headings and then further expansion into several; my favourite headings are 5 A classic is a book which even when we read it for the first time gives the sense of rereading something we have read before6 A classic is a book which has never exhausted all it has to say to its readers9 Classics are books which the we think we know them through hearsay the original unexpected and innovative we find them when we actually read themAfter the title essay in a further 35 essays Calvino journeys through many essays on a number of writers and novels He covers Conrad Hemingway Borges Stevenson James Dickens Twain Tolstoy Homer Dafoe and Though I would only recommend these essays to readers particularly interested in the writers Calvino’s thoughts on them and their style and influence or simply in the grace and ease of his essay writing in general Even essays concerning writers I was not aware of or else uninterested in I found great enjoyment through Calvino’s prose The essays are dated between the 60s and the 80s Of course the most interesting essays for me were about writers I care for and read Hemingway Borges Twain Conrad etc The essays that surprised me the most were on Gadda and Pliny I considered adding uotes and thoughts on Calvino’s thoughts on other writers but for one I’d spoil it and for another it would end up being too like a Borges story wouldn’t it? My thoughts on Calvino’s thoughts on someone else Or even sometimes my thoughts on Calvino’s thoughts on another writer’s thoughts on a final writer We don’t have time
