Most widely held works by Fernanda Pivano
Spoon River anthology by Edgar Lee Masters( Book )
54 editions published between 1943 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most striking and original achievements in American poetry is now available in a remarkable edition that comprehends the poet and his book in an entirely new way. This edition of Spoon River Anthology probes the social background of the smalltown world that Edgar Lee Masters loved and hated--and finally transmuted into powerful literary art. Extensive annotations identify the people whose lives inspired the 243 poetic accounts of frustration, violence, struggle, and triumph that once shocked American readers. The most extraordinary feature of this edition is the extensive introduction that provides the key to this misunderstood American classic. The book's relationship to Whitman is clearly established, and the important influences of Browning, Goethe, Spinoza, and others are revealed for the first time. John Hallwas's approach combines cultural, biographical, philosophical, psychoanalytic, mythic, and symbolic insights--and concludes with a stunning reassessment of "Our New Poet." The annotated Spoon River Anthology supersedes 75 years of largely misdirected critical commentary. It will send a new generation of readers back to this surprisingly complex book that probes so deeply into the American consciousness--and will send Masters back into our national anthologies

A farewell to arms by Ernest Hemingway( Book )
27 editions published between 1946 and 2013 in Italian and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Composto febbrilmente tra il 1928 e il 1929, "Addio alle armi" è la storia di amore e guerra che Hemingway aveva sempre meditato di scrivere ispirandosi alle sue esperienze del 1918 sul fronte italiano, e in particolare alla ferita riportata a Fossalta e alla passione per l'infermiera Agnes von Kurowsky. I temi della guerra, dell'amore e della morte, che per diversi aspetti sono alla base di tutta l'opera di Hemingway, trovano in questo romanzo uno spazio e un'articolazione particolari. È la vicenda stessa a stimolare emozioni e sentimenti collegati agli incanti, ma anche alle estreme precarietà dell'esistenza, alla rivolta contro la violenza e il sangue ingiustamente versato. La diserzione del giovane ufficiale americano durante la ritirata di Caporetto si rivela, col ricongiungimento tra il protagonista e la donna della quale è innamorato, una decisa condanna di quanto di inumano appartiene alla guerra. Ma anche l'amore, in questa vicenda segnata da una tragica sconfitta della felicità, rimane un'aspirazione che l'uomo insegue disperatamente, prigioniero di forze misteriose contro le quali sembra inutile lottare

The sun also rises by Ernest Hemingway( Book )
8 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in Italian and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Published in 1926 to explosive acclaim, The Sun Also Rises stands as perhaps the most impressive first novel ever written by an American writer. A roman ̉clef about a group of American and English expatriates on an excursion from Paris's Left Bank to Pamplona for the July fiesta and its climactic bull fight, a journey from the center of a civilization spiritually bankrupted by the First World War to a vital, God-haunted world in which faith and honor have yet to lose their currency, the novel captured for the generation that would come to be called "Lost" the spirit of its age, and marked Ernest Hemingway as the preeminent writer of his time
