Thomas Hardy's Via dalla pazza folla (Italian Edition) PDF

By Thomas Hardy

ISBN-10: 1521856435

ISBN-13: 9781521856437

through dalla pazza folla narra le appassionanti vicende di Gabriel Oak, un giovane los angeles cui vita viene sconvolta dall’inatteso arrivo dell’affascinante Bathsheba, bellezza orgogliosa e nullatenente di cui s’innamora. Quando le chiede di sposarlo lei lo rifiuta, ma i loro destini tornano a incrociarsi: mentre lei eredita una fattoria dallo zio, lui perde tutti i suoi averi in una notte di tempesta. Si ritrova così costretto a lavorare according to Bathsheba e a contendersi le sue attenzioni con altri due uomini.
Se un romanzo può essere completamente intriso d’amore, ebbene questo lo è. Un amore in line with tutto, e non solo in step with le cose vive: according to le melodie polifoniche del vento e in keeping with il linguaggio delle stelle, consistent with le piante e according to i colori, according to il pace che passa da un sorriso a una minaccia, consistent with l. a. fragilità della vita o in step with l’incanto di un gioco di luci. E, soprattutto, consistent with los angeles misteriosa algebra dei sentimenti umani. In questo state of affairs in cui tutto ha un’anima, o sembra proprio averla, si muovono i personaggi di un ambiente rurale, quello tanto amato da Hardy; e ci accorgiamo che proprio in quell’ambiente è forse possibile scoprire meglio il vero funzionamento, quello più riposto, della condizione umana. Perché è nella natura, dentro los angeles natura e, appunto, through dalla pazza folla, che l’essere umano riesce a mettere a nudo l. a. sua vera anima. I personaggi possono essere contadini o mercanti, ricchi agricoltori o servente, ubriaconi o bigotti, donnine impaurite o tipacci arroganti, amanti folli o fedeli innamorati, ma fra tutti emerge maestosa l’eroina del romanzo: donna sensibile, bella, intelligente, ma pur sempre donna, con tutte le contraddizioni della sua gelosia e dei suoi pudori, della vanità e dei capricci, degli scrupoli, della passione, e quindi infine del suo amore: è una donna di cui non si può fare a meno di innamorarsi candidamente, according to non dimenticarla mai più.

«A scarnirlo dalla meravigliosa tessitura in cui è intrecciato, il romanzo presenta l. a. struttura semplice, quasi elementare, delle ballate popolari. O del melodramma, verrebbe voglia di aggiungere: non manca neppure il basso continuo del coro villereccio, con voci soliste che di tanto in tanto se ne escono fuori in effetti, in step with lo più comici, irresistibili. Ma come si fa a scarnirlo, se si è continuamente presi nell’incantagione della sua musica e dei suoi colori, nel suo pace lento, bradicardico, con appena qualche accelerata convulsa nei momenti tragici?».

La estepa / En el barranco (Clasica) (Spanish Edition) - download pdf or read online

By Antón P. Chéjov

ISBN-10: 8484281191

ISBN-13: 9788484281191

«Nadie ha comprendido tan clara y sutilmente como Chejov los angeles tragedia de las pequeñeces de l. a. vida, nadie hasta él ha sabido dibujar a los hombres con tan impecable veracidad.» Maksim Gorki

El viaje de un niño de nueve años a través de los angeles estepa ucraniana, rumbo al instituto en que habrá de cursar sus primeros estudios, dibuja l. a. línea argumental de La estepa (1888), los angeles novela corta que proporcionó a Chéjov reconocimiento y que le convirtió en un escritor de éxito. En El barranco (1900), donde el adulterio alterna con el asesinato y los más variados delitos, una impresión de fluidez conseguida sin forzar en ningún momento el estilo caracteriza el relato de principio a fin. Estas dos narraciones son un magnífico ejemplo del arte de Chéjov, cuya influencia se dejó notar inmediatamente en sus contemporáneos y que aún hoy sigue vigente en modernas tendencias como el minimalismo y el realismo sucio.

Antón Pávlovich Chéjov nació en Taganrog, a orillas del mar de Azov, en el sur de Rusia, en 1860. Hijo de un modesto comerciante, antiguo siervo que había conseguido comprar su libertad, así como l. a. de su mujer y sus hijos, hizo sus primeros estudios en su ciudad natal. En 1879 ingresó en los angeles Facultad de Medicina de los angeles Universidad de Moscú: «La familiaridad con las ciencias naturales y con los métodos científicos –escribiría– siempre me ha tenido en guardia, y siempre he intentado, cuando ha sido posible, ser coherente con los hechos de l. a. ciencia, y, cuando no lo ha sido, he preferido no escribir». Desde el primer curso empezó a publicar «cuadros humorísticos» en revistas, con los que conseguía mantener a toda su familia (su padre, endeudado, su madre y sus hermanos habían tenido que trasladarse con él a Moscú), y pocos años después ya period un escritor profesional reconocido. 1888 fue un año clave en su carrera: publicó su novela corta La estepa (ALBA CLÁSICA núm. LIII, junto con En el barranco), escribió su primera obra teatral, Ivanov, y recibió el premio Pushkin. En 1890 viajó a l. a. isla de Sajalín, «con l. a. intención de escribir un libro sobre nuestra colonia penal», que aparecería al año siguiente con el título de La isla de Sajalín. En 1896 estrenó La gaviota, su primer gran éxito en los angeles escena, al que siguieron El tío Vania (1899), Tres hermanas (1901) y El jardín de los cerezos (1904). Maestro del relato corto, algunas de sus obras más importantes se encuentran en ese género, en el que ha ejercido una influencia que aún hoy sigue vigente. Chéjov murió en Badenweiller en 1904.
