Breve, lapidario, quasi ascetico. The Moon and the Bonfire by Cesare Pavese. Like her novels, he manages to combine very intelligent symbolism the moon, basically, the other side of the fence where the grass etc but where there is also no there; the bonfires, the superstitions but also rootedness of the old world and paradox with a straightforward style and garden-variety realism. Even the dogs mistrust him, and bark and pull at their leashes when he passes by.

The Moon and the Bonfire

A few months later, the author was going to commit suicide. Pavese guarda il suo paesaggio con lo sguardo orgoglioso del creatore.

Was I so hopelessly depressed by this that I was blinded to some message about the cruelty of humanity and it had something to say about not escaping the world? Irene e Silvia, le signorine, sembrano figure ritagliate dalla carta velina, tanto il ricordo del protagonista le rende splendide e enormi e distanti: In this way, what he is actually searching for is a home; he is wanting to claim a piece of land for himself, despite an overriding feeling of rootlessness; he wants to feel part of something, and yet, simultaneously, feels alienated, or distant, from almost everything.

Maybe Anguilla is the village and they are the world. How peculiar nostalgia is; it is like an amiable old cleaning lady who is able to remove the most stubborn, unpleasant stains. Quando il pianeta in questione esplode, vengono scagliati lontano, ma sempre cercheranno di ritrovare un centro attorno a cui camminare. Io forse lo preferisco come poeta, ma anche come romanziere non scherzava: Want to Read saving….

Yes, it is unceasingly ruminative, and therefore low on high octane thrills; but I have never chased after that kind of thing, myself. Arriva fino al Pacifico, un altro mare davanti, e dietro sempre e solo colline e montagne, proprio come la oficuo terra. He vive have hated being alive to have written this book.

Indeed the whole novel reads as a long. You were a bastard. Viene facile dire che Pavese vedeva le donne da molto lontano, come creature desiderabili ma irraggiungibili: I personaggi di questo racconto kficio eterni e mitici. How did YOU do anything, Nuto?

Anguila, the narrator, is a successful ofucio lured home from California to the Piedmontese village where he was fostered by peasants. Si passavano tante ore a mangiare le castagne, a vegliare, girare le stalle, che sembrava fosse sempre domenica.

So perhaps it’s not as irrational as I viveg. No one could have sounded faker than he did with that shit about the priests. Well, he ain’t his own mama. He also published criticism, posthumously collected in La letteratura americana e altri saggi ; American Literature, Essays and Opinions, If Santina was just a sex machine to owe allegiance to men who had the right to judge her than this book really, really sucked.


If I’m honest ‘Moon’ lost a lot of chances with me pretty much from the get go when it said that women couldn’t have music because they only wanted to be hot. It is only when another Italian enters the restaurant where he is working that he feels a connection to something. What the fuck was that?! Sempre l’insoddisfazione e la solitudine ritornano a far sentire la loro voce. Or maybe because he could not strike up human relationships satisfactory?

If I had to read another book like this one I wouldn’t want to read anymore. Refresh and try again.

Manuel Alberto Vieira’s review of O Ofício de Viver

Pavese killed himself after he finished this, I read online. We cry and it isn’t pretty. So abstain depressive, but for the rest, it’s solid, at least that’s my opinion, a fire of straw, pwvese is to say, not much.

Ma si percepiscono sensazioni splendide di nostalgie per la propria terra: Ecco, anche a Pavese che gli vuoi dire. Scrittura dal sapore classico quindi, toscano?

I was depressed by how much I didn’t care. Like what Morvern said about looking for some place beautiful. Who would care about him, now?

It’s also an investigation of memory and so on, none of which I find very interesting. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.
