Download Memoriale di Aires (Italian Edition) by Joaquim M. Machado de Assis,Giuliana Segre Giorgi PDF

By Joaquim M. Machado de Assis,Giuliana Segre Giorgi

Questo romanzo in forma di diario, opera estrema di quello che è a buon titolo considerato uno dei maggiori scrittori brasiliani, può persino sconcertare a una prima lettura in line with los angeles voluta semplicità dell'andamento narrativo e according to l'apparente ingenuità con cui si sofferma su episodi e riflessioni prive di peso.
Poi consistent withò ci si accorge che, oltre il velo tenue delle situazioni e dei fatti (un'anziana coppia adotta due giovani che non tarderanno a innamorarsi l'uno dell'altra e a partire insieme according to l'Europa), lo scrittore disegna un dramma e un contrasto senza tempo.
Il dramma è quello della vecchiaia, del pace che fugge e della morte che altrettanto rapidamente si avvicina; il contrasto è invece quello fra il diritto della gioventù di vivere e amare, separandosi allegramente da ciò che è estinto e caduco, e il desiderio dei vecchi di vedere confortato dal calore e dalla vitalità dei più giovani il proprio tramonto.
La trama leggera e quasi al limite dell'insignificanza, lo stile piano e di celata eleganza, rivelano poco a poco, pagina dopo pagina, los angeles sostanza di un autentico capolavoro.
