Microcosmi

Microcosmi Interessante raccolta di luoghi, cari allo scrittore I pi interessanti riguardano Grado e la sua laguna e le isole croate. Abbastanza interessante, anche se spesso ho come la sensazione che l autore si dilunghi anche in modo eccessivo su una serie di particolari sempre pi minuti Ma forse sta qui l essenza del titolo, nella descrizione di quei microcosmi che racchiudono il tutto in un infinitesima parte del reale. Se la tira un po , Magris, non vi pare Alluded to in An Unnecessary Woman Slow going ruminative meditation on the liminal areas between Italy, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia It took me forever to get through this, but I never considered quitting too lovely and dreamlike. Frammenti di una MittelEuropa personale..forse troppo brevi schizzi di storie minime che Magris raccoglie intorno alla sua Trieste il punto pi lontano che raggiunge sono le colline di Torino ma il libro inizia e termina nel capoluogo giuliano Notevole ed apprezzabile nel trovare spunti letterari molto evocativi e ricchi di significato nei personaggi unici che l autore incontra, il libro a volte sembra girare un p su se stesso quando Magris disegna arabeschi e strani barocchismi che stonano un poco con l asciuttezza dei luoghi descritti In ogni caso una lettura di qualit anche se si insiste un p troppo sui pruriti che giovani fanciulle suscitano nei vecchi satiri che si aggirano tra le pagine A book that as much as this is possible reconciles one with the prospect of growing old Getting to know a place as well as your own face, growing roots, learning the local folklore of a hotel lobby, a cafe or a mountain resort this is what I imagine the passing of time should do. Magris takes us on a spiraling journey through a variety of less well known areas of northern Italy, southern Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and the Adriatic Sea itself I use the term spiraling because the depth of Magris knowledge about these places, all with which he has a personal connection The individuals chapters are in effect essays about a specific place But each of these places, whether islands in the Adriatic, woods in Slovenia, the countryside outside Turin, the author s home city of Trieste, the Tyrol or others is presented asthan just a geographical location to be described Often beginning with a description of a visit to the place by the author, colorful stories of local residents begin to unfold followed by tales of the at least locallyfamous residents, usually authors All these places are borderlands where people of a variety of ethnicities, religious beliefs, cultures, have overlapped since time immemorial Microcosms is pure Magris. In His Acclaimed Work Danube, Claudio Magris Painted A Vast Canvas Stretching From The Source Of The River To The Black Sea Now He Focuses On The Tiny Borderlands Of Istria And Italy Where He Was Born And Where He Has Lived Most Intensely From The Forests Of Monte Nevoso, To The Hidden Valleys Of The Tyrol, To A Trieste Caf , Microcosms Pieces Together A Mosaic Of Stories Comic, Tragic, Picaresque, Nostalgic From Life S Minor Characters Their Worlds Might Be Small, But They Are Far From Minimalist In Them Flashes The Great, The Meaningful, The Unrepeatable Significance Of Every Existence Microcosms Won The Strega Prize In
