New PDF release: paradiese: Erzählungen (German Edition)

By Andrea Sailer

ISBN-10: 3701179255

ISBN-13: 9783701179251

Geschichten von Leuten, die Geschichten machen, ohne dabei Geschichte zu machen. (Oder vielleicht doch.) Erzählungen im Spannungsfeld von Suche, Sehnsucht und Sucht.
In einer Welt der Vielfalt und der scheinbar unbegrenzten (Auswahl-)Möglichkeiten an Daseinsentwürfen und Lebensangeboten geht es letztlich nur mehr um die Wahl der Versäumnisse. Geschichten über Abwesenheit von Liebe, Glück, Geborgenheit. Aber eine Geschichte über das Paradies. Nur eben von der anderen Seite. Alles eine Frage der Perspektive.
rzählungen, entlanggeschrieben an Unzulänglichkeiten, Sehnsüchten, Versäumnissen, Ängsten, nicht verortbarem Heimweh. Erzählungen über die ganz große kleine Welt im Inneren. Intime, mitunter schonungslose „Befunde“ des Ist-Standes, der Gegenwart, in der der Mensch zu funktionieren, zu bestehen, zu entsprechen hat. Als Mann oder Frau. In aufgezwungenen oder selbst gewählten Rollen. Im Kampf mit den Zumutungen des Daseins, den Normen, den Beschädigungen sowie: Verlusten, Einsamkeiten, Illusionen und Tod.
Erzählungen über all die Paradiese, die fehlen, die uns das Leben schuldig bleibt, obwohl es uns nie welche versprochen hat. Und über all die Paradiese, die ausgerechnet dort zu finden sind, wo es niemand je für möglich gehalten hätte.

Read e-book online Elysium PDF

By Pamela Stewart

ISBN-10: 1895636914

ISBN-13: 9781895636918

Pamela Stewart is a self-described ?literary proctologist,? and her writing usually appears to be like into areas that folks regularly don?t are looking to glance. The tales in Elysium are in regards to the problems of lifestyles all of us come across as humans, the fragility of life?the actual, psychological, and non secular demanding situations we needs to try and conquer. they're approximately usual humans, characters trying to find that means. everyone is rescued, yet no longer regularly within the means they was hoping for or anticipated. Stewart?s paintings is character-driven and empathetic.

Pamela Stewart spent two decades as a personal investigator, which gave her a distinct perception into human behaviour. ?Because I spent such a lot of years on my own in a motor vehicle staring at humans, my point of view on humans is a section assorted. i'd watch an individual for 3 or so days in a row, and in that point get a tablet model in their existence; however it was once skewed simply because i used to be a part of their existence, but no longer half. They didn?t recognize i used to be in it,? she says. ?Writing approximately humans is more or less like that too.?

Praise for Elysium:

?... Stewart is obviously a flexible and inventive author who doesn't lose sight of the truth that robust plots, believable characters, motion and clash force winning brief tales. "... there's a feel in her fiction that Stewart has the endurance and perspicacity to get it simply right?to write significant, crafty, tales that allow readers rapid access.?(Front & Centre)

?Elysium?s most powerful tales provide greater than surprising eventualities, and concentrate on plausible characters. ?Le discomfort? is set Mildred, a lonely baker with a fondness for bread (and a tattoo of bread coming out of a toaster); the gripping ?Snow Angels? describes Emily, a brand new mom suffering from the guilt of witnessing an unintended dying. something yet angelic, Stewart?s protagonists make Elysium a daring debut.? (The type Magazine)

"Stewart writes in a transparent, spare type that cars in addition to little ornamentation yet every now and then offers a metaphoric punch. ... The tales are severe and compressed, usually leaving out connective tissue to accomplish ends and results often linked to poetry, and make the most of rereading. but the publication in general is suffused with sufficient natural humour and wit to maintain you smiling all through, if now not guffawing out loud. With every one tale short sufficient to be learn at a sitting, think about Elysium like a field of narrative cakes, every one distinctive and pleasant by itself, even though they pass down great in bunches as well..."

Racconti dispersi (1928-1951) (Tascabili. Romanzi e racconti by Alberto Moravia,S. Casini,F. Serra PDF

By Alberto Moravia,S. Casini,F. Serra

ISBN-10: 8845251969

ISBN-13: 9788845251962

Sessantanove ‟nuovi” racconti di Moravia, dispersi su giornali, riviste, almanacchi, fra il 1928 e il 1951. Una rinnovata ispezione in varie biblioteche, che Simone Casini e Francesca Serra hanno condotto con mano sollecita, ha dato un frutto insperato. Moravia sembrava aver ‟dimenticato”, o lasciato alla sonnolenta dimenticanza degli archivi parte proficua del proprio lavoro. Da quello straordinario regista della propria esistenza che l‛autore de ‟Gli indifferenti” è stato, vale l. a. pena credere che in quell‛oblio abbia avuto parte una voluta ambiguità. Non si trattava di salvare subito in quantity quanto egli pensava fosse il fior fiore del proprio ‟raccontare” - anche se i racconti che raccolse through through nel corso degli anni Trenta e Quaranta, non in step with pochi lettori rappresentano un vertice espressivo ineguagliato. Il quantity ‟Racconti 1927-1951” che li raduna, da ‟Cortigiana stanca” a ‟Luna di miele, sole di fiele”, è un classico della narrativa italiana del ‛900. Credo che Moravia puntasse a fissare un canone di sé, o un‛immagine, quella dello scrittore racchiuso in line with intero in un principio di realtà, di ‟romanziere realista”, con tutto quanto rappresentava quest‛idea, in senso anche filosofico: non scrittore fotografo della vita, ma narratore interprete dei sospetti che con crudezza l‛esistenza declina. Secondo questo criterio egli costruì, selezionò quei suoi volumi. I racconti ora ritrovati ci fanno capire che se certamente è stato l‛interprete più felice della tradizione ‟realista” italiana che si incardina nei nomi di Boccaccio, Machiavelli, Goldoni e Manzoni, altro c‛era nella sua immaginazione, che parrebbe situarsi fuori di quella linea, e che in lui trovò sintesi efficace. Questi racconti ‟nuovi”, scanditi in tre fasi - quelli che dagli esordi sfiorano lo scoppio della guerra, quindi i racconti che disegnano ‟tipi”, ‟caratteri” in bilico fra classicità e surrealismo; infine le narrazioni ‟romane” e ‟ciociare” del dopoguerra, grondanti felicità visiva - questi racconti, nella loro interezza, ci dicono che Moravia è stato anche buon lettore, discepolo, sosteneva, di Rimbaud e di Dostoevskij. Pagine di sprofondamento nelle oscurità, nelle ‟caverne” della psiche, pagine di avviso che il male è sempre sulle porte dell‛anima, e poi paure e dilavate, rivoltate fantasie, dove visioni di moderna civiltà urbana spiovono in una atmosfera di cifrata irrealtà: Moravia sembra qui catturato dagli aspetti provocatori, sornionamente e comicamente provocatori anche, del grande decadentismo europeo. Insomma, si tratta di scritti utili soltanto alla ricognizione di un laboratorio, di un‛officina? los angeles risposta è no. Non c'è un momento in cui Moravia scrivendo abbia dismesso l‛idea che il narratore debba raccontare e raccontare, catturare il proprio lettore, tenerlo alla gola according to non fargli perdere il piacere, il gusto di correre l'avventura del mondo, anche se questa avventura è pur sempre un‛incognita. Ma, sosteneva, è l‛incognita della ‟bella vita”. (Enzo Siciliano)
