New PDF release: Adalbert Stifter oder Diese fürchterliche Wendung der Dinge:

By Wolfgang Matz

Matz' Stifter-Biographie gilt als Standardwerk - jetzt liegt sie in einer gründlich bearbeiteten und erweiterten Neuausgabe vor.

»Stifter ist einer der merkwürdigsten, hintergründigsten, heimlich kühnsten und wunderlich packendsten Erzähler der Weltliteratur, kritisch viel zu wenig ergründet", so schrieb Thomas Mann in der Entstehung des Doktors Faustus, und damit zählte er zu denjenigen, die eine neue Beschäftigung mit dem lange so verkannten Autor angestoßen haben. Als Idylliker abgetan, nach seinem Tod quick vergessen, wurde Adalbert Stifter im 20. Jahrhundert als einer der größten Erzähler seiner Zeit wiederentdeckt.
Wolfgang Matz' Buch ist das Standardwerk zu Leben und Werk Adalbert Stifters. Matz folgt den Lebensspuren Stifters und zeichnet gleichzeitig die Entwicklung seines Erzählens nach: Von den frühen, an romantischen Vorbildern orientierten Versuchen, die Ungereimtheiten des Lebens literarisch zu verarbeiten, über das Streben nach Klassizität bis hin zu dem großen Epochenroman »Der Nachsommer" und dem spröden, von den Zeitgenossen nicht mehr verstandenen Spätwerk.

New PDF release: Margherita Sarfatti: La regina dell'arte nell'Italia

By Rachele Ferrario

Ha fondato il gruppo del Novecento, ha progettato e allestito mostre in patria e all'estero, ha frequentato gli intellettuali all'avanguardia del suo pace, according to oltre vent'anni ha influenzato in modo profondo l. a. cultura e l'arte italiane. Eppure, in keeping with una sorta di damnatio memoriae, l. a. maggior parte del pubblico los angeles conosce solo come «l'amante del duce». los angeles sua figura è rimasta a lungo «appiattita» su quella di Mussolini. In realtà rivestì un ruolo da protagonista, soprattutto in campo artistico, ma anche in politica e nel forgiare l'ideologia del fascismo.

Colta, elegante, raffinata, Margherita nasce a Venezia nel 1880 da una ricca famiglia ebrea, i Grassini. Fin da giovane frequenta Antonio Fogazzaro e Guglielmo Marconi, conosce l. a. regina Elena e il patriarca Sarto, futuro papa Pio X. Intelligente, inquieta e curiosa, è decisa a occupare un posto in prima fila nella vita, in un pace in cui le donne potevano dedicarsi tutt'al più alla filantropia.

Il suo salotto di Milano, un vero laboratorio del pensiero artistico del pace, è frequentato da futuristi come Marinetti e Carrà, Russolo e Boccioni – con cui intreccia una storia d'amore –, i pittori di Novecento (Sironi, Funi, Bucci), letterati e poeti come d'Annunzio e Ada Negri, e da un giovanotto trasandato ma ambizioso di nome Benito Mussolini. Tra i due scoppia presto l. a. passione, ma nasce anche un proficuo sodalizio in cui ognuno si serve dell'altro.

Costretta a espatriare nell'imminenza delle leggi razziali, rientra in patria solo dopo l. a. caduta del fascismo, ma resta relegata ai margini della storia, condannata moralmente in step with essere stata l'ispiratrice del duce, compromessa come intellettuale e come donna.

Oggi il libro di Rachele Ferrario, grazie a una capillare ricerca documentaria e a carteggi inediti, ci restituisce il temperamento di una donna libera, capace di affrontare con coraggio anche il dolore estremo della morte del figlio diciassettenne Roberto, arruolatosi volontario nella Prima guerra mondiale contro l. a. volontà dei genitori. Una donna che vive in anticipo sul proprio pace e non ama sentirsi dire di no. Nemmeno dal duce, a cui scrive, rivendicando los angeles propria indipendenza: «Mi hai presa, mi hai conquistata, ti sei fatto amare oggi? Sì? Tanto meglio, domani bisogna ricominciare da capo ... Io sono nuova; io nasco ogni mattina. Ciò che feci ieri non è los angeles ragione determinante di quanto a long wayò domani...».

Collabora con il «Corriere della Sera». Nel 1998 ha scoperto un nucleo di forty five opere inedite di Paresce, di cui ha curato mostre antologiche, dirige l'Archivio, ha pubblicato los angeles biografia (Lo scrittore che dipinse l'atomo.

By Kenneth Slawenski,Yamin von Rauch

Im Januar 2010 starb der für seine Abneigung gegen jede paintings von Medienpräsenz berüchtigte Schriftsteller J. D. Salinger. Bis dahin hatte er seit forty five Jahren nichts mehr veröffentlicht, doch mit einem kleinen Roman, dem »Fänger im Roggen«, ist er für immer in die Literaturgeschichte eingegangen. Das Buch, das 1951 erschien, verkaufte sich mehr als 25 Millionen Mal und ist Pflichtlektüre an Schulen. Mehrere Biografen sind bereits an Salingers rabiater Vorstellung von Privatsphäre gescheitert. Er verhinderte, dass seine frühen Erzählungen nachgedruckt wurden, sorgte dafür, dass seine Korrespondenz vernichtet wurde und zog gegen jeden vor Gericht, der es wagte, ihm oder seiner Familie zu nahe zu treten.
Slawenski ist es gelungen, in mühevoller Kleinarbeit die Überreste dieser Selbstauslöschung zusammenzutragen, ohne sich auf das Privatleben Salingers zu stürzen. Seine Spurensuche wirft, jenseits von Klatsch und Tratsch, neues Licht auf Leben und Werk eines der größten amerikanischen Schriftsteller des letzten Jahrhunderts.
