La battaglia (I grandi tascabili) (Italian Edition) by John Steinbeck,Eugenio Montale

By John Steinbeck,Eugenio Montale

Nel 1933 il presidente degli Stati Uniti, Theodore Roosvelt, si trovò a dover fronteggiare una crisi disastrosa, conseguenza diretta del crollo del 1929. Furono anni difficili e occuparsi di letteratura implicò un impegno sociale fino a quel momento sconosciuto. A questa nuova generazione apparteneva Steinbeck, che in questo romanzo narra l. a. storia di uno sciopero di braccianti, del suo fallimento e di uomini che trasformano l. a. propria disperazione in lotta in step with il riconoscimento dei propri diritti fondamentali. Pubblicato nel 1936 e tradotto in Italia da Eugenio Montale nel 1940, il romanzo riassume lo spirito di un’epoca, un’opera in cui viene presentata un’immagine atroce, scandalosa ma anche poetica del New Deal americano.

Emilio el Ibondá (Spanish Edition) by Filiberto Watson Mora,Filiberto Watson Mora,Mary Simón,Adán

By Filiberto Watson Mora,Filiberto Watson Mora,Mary Simón,Adán Prieto,Ruben Ricard,Leslie Sinclair

Emilio el Ibondá es una novela escrita sobre los impulsos de un autor que se estrena en un universo totalmente desconocido, pero al que no teme enfrentarse con sus imágenes profundamente crudas, con un lenguaje que roza a veces en el desprecio de una realidad que subyace y de l. a. que por lo normal se teme hablar.
No puede verse en el autor un estilo definido, puesto que él mismo reconoce no ser escritor. Poco importa los angeles forma como haya ido articulando esta obra. Tal vez el autor provoque reacciones contradictorias por su narrativa, o por l. a. obscenidad de su narrativa. Son experiencias que le han contado, semi-verdades, o hechos que simplemente viven en los angeles mente de su imperative personaje, Emilio el Ibondá, un joven de barrio, marginalizado por los angeles propia sociedad, alguien que abraza una organización religiosa de hombres. Los Ñañigos o Abakuá, adentrado en el bajo mundo, ése en el que los angeles vida se expone a diario, donde el éxito va asociado a l. a. violencia. Para luego llegar a ser un excelente militar.
La crueldad con que otro de los personajes, el Rastori, el hermano del Ibondá, somete y viola reiteradamente a una menor es sin lugar a dudas uno de los pasajes de mayor ensañamiento descritos en los angeles novela. l. a. vesania y los angeles coacción van a estar siempre presentes en cada una de las veces en que el Rastori profana los angeles virginidad de los angeles joven hijastra.
El autor se toma su tiempo en rememorar hechos de sangre ocurridos en prisiones cubanas, descritos por el autor a partir de testimonios a los cuales cube haber tenido acceso de una u otra forma. Estos sucesos podrían haber quedado en secreto o en el olvido a no ser por los comentarios de los propios prisioneros que atravesaron los muros de celda en celda o de uno a otro bloque de las prisiones y que le confieren a los angeles obra un elemento extraordinario a los angeles hora de reflexionar.
Tal vez habrá quien piense que esta obra podría haberse escrito de otra manera, más llamada a otro tipo de ficción o con una suavidad más acorde a una literatura que se libra a un mundo totalmente desconocido, ajeno al autor.
En todo caso habrá que leer detenidamente cada uno de los 19 capítulos que articulan a Emilio el Ibondá y hurgar en ellos los angeles veracidad de su entramado, para comprender el porqué el autor ha querido mantenerse fiel a lo que siente, por lo que ha estado trabajando durante varios años.

Seduttori Seriali - Storia di un'epoca mai raccontata by Michele Lo Foco

By Michele Lo Foco

“Seduttori seriali” racconta le giornate di un gio-vane praticante playboy negli anni del grande successo del evening “Number one” e di alcuni amatori professionisti, conosciuti in tutto il mondo come i Moschettieri o les Italiens.
Quel periodo di follie e di lussi sfrenati, di donne bellissime e di giocatori tramontò in pochi istanti, mentre il “Number one” chiudeva ed il “Jackie’O” trionfava, e con esso terminò l’epopea dei grandi playboy destinati advert estinguersi senza lasciare eredi.
Di quel periodo non rimangono tracce che abbia-no un minimo valore, solo fotografie animate di volti e corpi festeggianti in un ambiente che non poteva essere definito decadente ma semmai surreale. Infatti los angeles decadenza presuppone una discesa dall’alto, mentre i nostri playboy percorre-vano un cammino piatto, vuoto, distaccato dalla società e dagli accadimenti. Non erano padroni di un vissuto, ma strumenti di uno scorrere del tem-po legato all’essere visti e non all’essere.
