Download PDF by Gian Luigi Beccaria: Le orme della parola: Da Sbarbaro a De André, testimonianze

By Gian Luigi Beccaria

Raccontare il Novecento attraverso le orme e le tracce degli autori più amati che hanno saputo cogliere il linguaggio nella sua onnipotenza ma anche nei suoi limiti. È questo il sentiero scelto da Gian Luigi Beccaria: una strada
personale che tocca alcune stelle polari come Giorgio Caproni, e incontra amici come Claudio Magris saggista e scrittore, Edoardo Sanguineti e Giorgio Bárberi poeti. Il libro ci regala un Novecento intimo, che si immerge nei versi carnali di Ignazio Buttitta e che riemerge nella prosa senza sfumature di Primo Levi, in quella epica dell’amatissimo Fenoglio, in quella scabra e ironica di Pietro Chiodi, o nelle storie raccontate da Vassalli. Senza dimenticare alcune vette – Sbarbaro, gli stessi Caproni e Bandini, Giudici e Sanguineti – e a sorpresa, anche Fabrizio De André. E poi il dialetto, nella poesia e nella prosa di autori come Luigi Meneghello: dialetto raccontato come un reticolo di stabilità, di “privacy linguistica”, che richiama a Beccaria le radici più profonde, los angeles casa, l’infanzia, gli affetti remoti.
Un mondo quasi scomparso, sentimentalmente difeso. Un atto d’amore, queste pagine, nei confronti di autori che si sono spinti ai confini dell’espressione, conducendo il lettore verso lingue e mondi sconosciuti.

“La poesia è quanto di meno irrilevante circoli oggi tra gli uomini: los angeles sua forza imperterrita tiene il campo. E continuerà advert accompagnare l. a. storia degli uomini.”

Get Ich-Plakate: Eine Geschichte des Gesichts als PDF

By Valentin Groebner

++++ Warum braucht im 21. Jahrhundert alles ein Gesicht? ++++

Große Augen, lächelnde Münder: Gesichter auf Plakatwänden sollen Gefühle erzeugen, Vertrauen, Intimität – alles Leitbegriffe der Werbung im 21. Jahrhundert. Aber der Glaube an die Wirkung von Gesichtern hat eine lange Vorgeschichte. Ihren Spuren geht der Historiker und Publizist Valentin Groebner in seinem klugen, based geschriebenen Essay nach. Ob Heiligenbilder, Renaissanceporträts oder Fotografien, alle diese Bilder sagen viel über die Fertigkeiten ihrer Macher aus, doch wenig über die dargestellten Menschen. Am Ende stellt sich die Frage, wie sehr wir diesen Gesichtern wirklich gleichen wollen – denn autonome Ich-Gesichter gibt es nicht.

Der Band enthält 37 s/w-Abbildungen.

That novel, released in 1986, struck a chord with readers and reviewers alike, and Ford, a little-known author who had for a time thought of giving up the writing of fiction, used to be without warning hailed in Newsweek as "one of the simplest writers of his generation."

With 3 different novels, a well-received quantity of brief tales, and a trilogy of novellas to his credits, Ford is now firmly validated as a tremendous determine between writers of the post-World struggle II iteration.

Perspectives on Richard Ford is the 1st selection of essays to check the physique of Ford's fiction. The 9 essays reveal that Ford, like few different writers of his time, powerfully depicts what it sounds like to reside within the secular late-twentieth-century international, a perilous and unsure position the place human relationships are impoverished and the place human lifestyles is usually characterised by way of vacancy, solipsism, and, specifically, via a feeling of alienation. The participants are likely to view Ford's narratives of alienation in a large cultural context. His works dramatize the breakdown of the associations of marriage, relatives, and neighborhood. His protagonists frequently typify the rootlessness and the anonymous longing pervasive in a hugely cellular, present-oriented society during which contributors, having misplaced a feeling of the prior, relentlessly pursue their very own elusive identities within the right here and now.

The assortment, which concludes with a compelling dialog among Ford and the editor, will turn out to be an important significant other to the paintings of 1 our so much fascinating modern writers.
