Novelle rusticane

Novelle rusticane summary ¿ 108 read & download Novelle rusticane FIRST PUBLISHED in a single volume in 1883 the stories collected in Little Novels of Sicily are drawn from the Sicily of Giovanni Verga's childhood reported at the time to be the poorest place in Europe Verga's style is swift sure and implacable; he plunges into his stories almost in midbreath and tells them with a stark economy of words There's something dark and tightly coiled at the heart of each story an ironic bitter resolution that is belied by the deceptive simplicity of Verga's prose and Verga strikes just when the reader's not expecting itTranslator D H Lawrence. Giovanni Verga s Little Novels of Sicily sounded so charming so downright uaint to this reader s ear that I was unprepared for the picaresueness and even the morbidity of these stories But they are deeply affecting and strike an unusual balance between expressiveness and subtlety which I suppose is only helped by having a translator like DH LawrenceMy awareness of this novel depends on the particular judgment of Harold Bloom who places Little Novels on his canonical list but leaves off I Malvoglio which apparently is Verga s better known work But I have discovered so many obscure treasures through Bloom that I relish opportunities like this to broaden my literary spectrum It s like setting aside all the Chardonnays and Pinots to taste a FrappatoThe little novels are properly a series of twelve linked stories spanning 225 pages in total They immerse the reader in the bleak life of nineteenth century Sicily where poor growing years the tyranny of the landed gentry and the godlessness of the clergy have boxed the peasant class into abject poverty and not so uiet desperation Verga offers nearly every perspective on this microcosm even that of a poor donkey whose value steps down each time it is resold and its new owner abuses it furtherThe stories are bleak with few if any instances of upward mobility even among the wealthy The entire system is spinning on entropy and malfeasance until it reaches such a nadir that the peasantry engage in bloody revolt an actual historic occurrence in Siciliy in 1860 Even in the last story in which the characters symbolically escape through emigration they trade physical deprivation for soulless empty lives as though they are psychically trapped in codependence with their homeland Verga leaves us with Farewell sweet melancholy of sunset silent shadows and wide lonely horizons of our known country and he is speaking as much of the entire collection of stories as he is of the experience of the enervated lovers at the endIn addition to the picaresueness of this writing what will stay with me is the sketch like uality of Verga s style in which short stories veer from one character to another even one plot to another before they end giving the reader an experience that is less linear and impressionistic The centerpiece of Little Novels is Black Bread the longest story by far at fifty four pages It begins with one unhappy couple shifts around to a shepherd and then another unhappy couple and finishes with a near apocalyptic frenzy of clanging bells agitated animals and devilish symbolism Verga tells this story as an older person might recount memories of their youth flitting from person to person theme to theme as the fragments of history pass before their eyes while the listener holds on to various threads waiting for a connection that may never comeThe result is a reading experience that is disarming and transporting but in a manner unlike many others For every finely etched moment of dark despair there is a passing distraction that fills in the uotidian Siciliy allowing us to feel these lives fully even as we long to escape them Verga s message at the end however seems to be that people are inexorably tied to their culture their homeland and their collective destiny for better or for worse and for the Sicilians that has been a rough row to cultivate

Novelle rusticane summary ¿ 108 read & download Novelle rusticane Surely found echoes of his own upbringing in Verga's sketches of Sicilian life the class struggle between property owners and tenants the relationship between men and the land and the unsentimental sometimes startlingly lyric evocation of the landscape Just as Lawrence veers between loving and despising the industrial North and its people so too Verga shifts between affection for and ironic detachment from the superstitious uneducated downtrodden working poor of Sicily If Verga reserves pity for anyone or anything it is the children and the animals but he doesn't spare th. Verga creates impressions by stringing thoughts in run on sentences and turning abruptly from a given path of character development and plot so a theme gradually grows of decrepitude inhumanity corruption and hypocrisy from everyone in the church village government and farmsteads until the reader is thoroughly depressed at the state of humanity in Sicily during the middle of the 18th century and one hopes that mankind will evolve to a higher state of being one ruled by compassion instead of greed which is prevalent in every one of these short stories although Verga certainly exhibits his talents in a near poetic prose however lacking he may be of the gifts of Russian writers who somehow retain the nobility of man The preceding epitomizes Verga s style throughout except for the superb last story Enough said
