Semina il vento

Автор: Perissinotto Alessandro

Forse è stato il caso, o forse l’amore, a condurre Giacomo Musso, maestro di trentacinque anni, al Braccio 6, nel reparto di massima sicurezza del carcere di Novara. Sulle labbra, la dichiarazione di innocenza; tra le mani, il giornale che ritrae in prima pagina il corpo inerte e dilaniato di sua moglie. Per sfuggire alla disperazione, Giacomo decide di raccontare la propria storia, l’inevitabile serie di eventi che lo ha portato in quella stanza, con una minuscola finestra come unico contatto con il mondo, come se fosse un pericolo per gli altri, lui che non ha mai fatto male a nessuno. Si erano conosciuti in un locale di Parigi, lei si chiamava Shirin ed era di origine iraniana. Il loro non era stato un amore focoso fin dal primo istante, ma era nato con la lentezza inesorabile delle cose fatte per durare. Si erano sposati alla fine di marzo e poi avevano preso la decisione che avrebbe cambiato le loro vite per sempre: si erano trasferiti a Molini, sulle montagne piemontesi, il paese dove lui era nato. Giacomo aveva deciso per nostalgia, Shirin perché aveva bisogno di radici: quelle che non aveva mai avuto, quelle che i suoi genitori avevano reciso fuggendo da un paese, l’Iran, profondamente cambiato nel giro di pochi anni. Tra le mura di quelle case, in quel luogo che sembrava essere rimasto indenne al trascorrere del tempo, Shirin credeva di aver trovato ciò che cercava. Ma si sbagliava. Anche lì non era che una straniera, guardata prima con curiosità invadente e poi con diffidenza. Così aveva cominciato a cercare dove non avrebbe dovuto: lei, laica e atea, aveva trovato una casa proprio nella religiosità ostentata dei suoi connazionali. Ora, di lei e del suo grande amore non è rimasto nulla, esistono solo i ricordi che Giacomo affida alle pagine del suo diario, sperando forse di poter scrivere un altro finale.

The Summons

Ray Atlee is a professor of law at the university of Virginia who is forty-three and newly single. He has a father, a very sick old man who lives alone in the ancestral home in Clanton, Mississippi; a beloved and powerful official who has towered over local law and politics for many years and is now a recluse. With the end in sight, Judge Atlee issues a summons to Ray to return home to Clanton, to discuss the details of his estate. Ray reluctantly heads south. But the meeting does not take place. The Judge dies too soon, and in doing so leaves behind a shocking secret known only to Ray. And perhaps someone else.

William Glackens

Автор: Berman Avis

A monumental new monograph accompanying the first major retrospective in fifty years of the work of William Glackens, an important American realist painter. This richly illustrated volume provides a comprehensive introduction to William Glackens (1870-1938), one of the liveliest and most influential American painters of the early twentieth century. A founder of the Ashcan School, along with painters such as Robert Henri and John Sloan, Glackens was crucial to the introduction of modern art in the United States through his collaboration with Albert C. Barnes and his championing of landmark exhibitions of American and European avant-garde art. The finest examples of his works over a fifty-year career, including paintings previously unknown to the general public, are reproduced here-from intimate nudes, portraits, and figure studies to vivid still lifes, vibrant street scenes, and landscapes, in which he captured people and their surroundings with matchless spontaneity and spirit. The book features essays by important scholars examining the artist’s relationship with French painting, his social observation and interest in costume, his depiction of women, and his role as a tastemaker.

Magonia

Автор: Maria Dahvana Headley

Aza Ray is drowning in thin air. Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak-to live. All the doctors can do is give her drugs and hope they keep her alive. So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of the medication. But Aza doesn’t think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name. Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who’s always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. The sickness catches up with her. Aza is lost to our world. And found, by another. Magonia. Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power. And she can use it to change the world. As she navigates her new life, Aza discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. In Aza’s hands lies the whole of humanity-including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?

Umili prose. I racconti di Belkin-La dama di picche-Kirdzali-La figlia del capitano

Автор: Puskin Aleksandr

Oltre che per le opere di poesia e di teatro, Puskin è considerato un classico anche per i suoi racconti che hanno lasciato una potente impronta sulla narrativa russa successiva, al punto che autori come Tolstoj ne raccomandano la lettura e lo studio. I racconti di Belkin, che furono tradotti in francese da Mérimée, rappresentano semplici figure, dai sentimenti autentici, in una narrazione lineare e con splendide scene di sfondo. Sono cinque racconti che l’autore attribuisce a un certo Ivan Petrovic Belkin, che li avrebbe uditi raccontare e poi trascritti: sono la storia di un duello rimandato e di un rancore covato nel tempo, quella di un amore contrastato tra una ricca fanciulla e un semplice fante, quella di un fabbricante di bare e del suo invito ai morti ad andarlo a trovare, quella di un padre vedovo lasciato solo dall’unica figlia, e quella di una nobile di provincia che inganna in amore il povero vicino. «La dama di picche» è uno dei racconti più caratteristici di Puskin: mescolando alla narrazione realistica elementi fantastici, narra dell’ossessione, fino alla follia, di un giovane per il segreto di una contessa che vince sempre alle carte. «La figlia del capitano» è un romanzo storico ispirato alla rivolta di Pugacëv. Chiude il volume il racconto Kirdzali.

Postmodernism in History

Postmodernism in History

Автор: Beverley C. Southgate

Postmodernism has significantly affected the theory and practice of history. It has induced fears about the future of historical study, but has also offered liberation from certain modernist constraints. This original and thought-provoking study looks at the context of postmodernist thought in general cultural terms as well as in relation to history. Postmodernism in History traces philosophical precursors of postmodernism and identifies the roots of current concerns. Beverley Southgate describes the core constituents of postmodernism and provides a lucid and profound analysis of the current state of the debate. His main concern is to counter pomophobia’ and to assert a positive future for historical study in a postmodern world. Postmodernism in History is a valuable guide to some of the most complex questions in historical theory for students and teachers alike.
