Tietoja tekijästä

Born in Austrian Trieste of a Jewish Italian-German family, Svevo spoke German fluently and pursued a business career before taking up fiction under a pseudonym that means "Italus the Swabian" or South German. His Italian had indeed something foreign about it, as did the characterizations of heroes näytä lisää and heroines in his novels. His first novel, A Life (1893), published at his own expense, and his second, Senilita (As a Man Grows Older) (1898), were virtually ignored. Svevo might have despaired had it not been for his friendship with the expatriate Irish novelist James Joyce (see Vol. 1), with whom he exchanged language lessons in Trieste. Joyce's intervention eventually found a foreign audience for Svevo's third and perhaps best novel, The Confessions of Zeno (1923), first published and very well received in France. As Svevo's reputation spread, he was called the Italian Proust in France, the Italian Musil in Germany, and the Italian Joyce in England. Italian critics now point out that, despite Svevo's foreign success, it was an Italian, Eugenio Montale, who wrote the first significant critical appraisal in 1925. Still, by then Montale had already steeped himself in foreign literatures and could assume a foreign perspective, while more natively rooted Italian critics, including even Benedetto Croce, continued to discount Svevo as a writer writing to be translated.

A wonderful book about the psychology of a near perfect loser character.

Alright, nothing too exciting. The format and way of telling the story and the style of characters really reminded me of the fables the main character writes. It's also not too sad, which is good cause the subject could easily turn out that way. I dunno, not much to say about it. Good enough but nothing special, just nice and didn't leave me with any lingering thoughts.

Quick plot summary so I can remember what happens if I come back to it in the future, don't click unless you want it all spoiled! Guy who wrote a book 40 years ago and still harbours dreams of being a proper literary star lives with his ill brother who he looks after reads to while working for a businessman and writing fables about sparrows. A cruel friend tricks him into thinking a publisher has signed a contract to publish his old book for a lot of money. This changes how man feels, he acts as more of an arsehole to his brother because he's worried, it preoccupies his mind. Eventually he works out he's been had, feels like an idiot, punches cruel friend a bit. All ends happily because through weirdness with exchange rate and cheques he actually made money out of the fake cheque cruel friend made out to him under false name. Roll credits… (lisätietoja)

E' Italo Svevo. O lo ami o lo detesti. Le 250 pagine del libro potrebbero essere riassunte in dieci righe. Ma di Svevo si ama la scrittura, l'analisi psicologica, lo sguardo dei personaggi sul mondo. E' uno degli autori che ha cambiato la letteratura italiana.
