I Nuovi racconti romani di Alberto Moravia sono stati scritti tra il 1954 e il 1959 e costituiscono los angeles naturale continuazione del dicorso avviato con i precedenti Racconti romani, considerati dalla critica centrali nella produzione moraviana. Anche nei Nuovi racconti romani il mito proletario influisce non soltanto sulla visione del mondo, ma anche sulla scrittura che è leggermente "romanesca" come appunto il linguaggio corrente di Roma che non è più affatto dialettale come ai tempi dei Belli, ma appena velato da un superstite accento locale. los angeles vastissima compagine di questi racconti, una vera e propria commedia umana, può apparire anche come una puntigliosa verifica della disfatta che insidia i propositi della vita.

By Herta Muller,Isabel García Adánez

ISBN-13: 9788498414288

En El rey se inclina y mata Herta Müller se cuestiona su propia escritura y los condicionamientos históricos y políticos a los que ésta se halla sometida: l. a. dictadura rumana de Ceausescu, donde creció y donde se forjó su conciencia lingüística y política hasta su exilio en Berlín. Asimismo, el lenguaje constituye el centro de todas sus reflexiones: el lenguaje como instrumento de poder y de represión, pero también como posibilidad de resistencia y de autoafirmación frente al poder totalitario. Parte esencial de esta reflexión está formada por los recuerdos de su infancia y de su familia, de esa familia cuya lengua period el alemán. Surge así el perfil, tan definido como impactante, de una experiencia important bajo el régimen totalitario a los angeles que l. a. autora responde, muy consecuentemente, con una obra literaria que ha merecido el Premio Nobel.

By Gabriele Seynsche

ISBN-10: 1520669607

ISBN-13: 9781520669601

In sechs Geschichten erzählt die Autorin von der Liebe. Von ihren Irrungen und Wirrungen. Von Paaren, die sich finden und Paaren, die sich trennen oder neue Beziehungen eingehen.
Unterhaltsam, charmant und mit vielen überraschenden Wendungen.
Besonders ungewöhnlich ist dabei der Perspektivenwechsel: Erst lässt die Autorin die Frauen ihre Geschichte erzählen, dann die Männer. Es sind dieselben Geschichten, und doch sind sie unterschiedlich.
Einfühlsam und nachvollziehbar bringt die Autorin die Gefühle und Gedanken ihrer Protagonistinnen und Protagonisten auf den Punkt.
Ob Mann oder Frau: Jeder, der Lust oder Frust in einer Beziehung kennt, kann sich wiederfinden. Und wird beim Zuklappen des Buches (vielleicht seufzend) sagen: Ich liebe – na und? Nach mir die Sintflut ...

Esta obra es comparable en muchos aspectos a su libro más conocido, Winesburg, Ohio, sobre todo por su manera de dar voz a los que no los angeles tienen, a esas almas desconcertadas que deambulan por sus páginas de manera fugaz pero conmovedora.
Nada escapa a su visión compasiva de los angeles humanidad y siente especial interés por las clases más desfavorecidas: mujeres, negros y pieles rojas, quienes «aunque hoy hayan prácticamente desaparecido, aún siguen siendo dueños del continente americano… porque en aquellos tiempos ellos amaban l. a. tierra».
