"This powerful novel is set against the background of Italy from 1939 to 1944, from the anxious months before the country entered the war, through the war years, to the Allied victory with its trailing wake of anxiety, disappointment, and grief. In the foreground are the members of two families. One is rich, the other is not."--Provided by publisher

The little virtues by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

148 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As far as the education of children is concerned," states Natalia Ginzburg in this collection of her finest and best-known short essays, "I think they should be taught not the little virtues but the great ones. Not thrift but generosity and an indifference to money; not caution but courage and a contempt for danger; not shrewdness but frankness and a love of truth; not tact but a love of one's neighbor and self-denial; not a desire for success but a desire to be and to know." Whether she writes of the loss of a friend, Cesare Pavese; or what is inexpugnable of World War II; or the Abruzzi, where she and her first husband lived in forced residence under Fascist rule; or the importance of silence in our society; or her vocation as a writer; or even a pair of worn-out shoes, Ginzburg brings to her reflections the wisdom of a survivor and the spare, wry, and poetically resonant style her readers have come to recognize. "A glowing light of modern Italian literature . . . Ginzburg's magic is the utter simplicity of her prose, suddenly illuminated by one word that makes a lightning streak of a plain phrase. . . . As direct and clean as if it were carved in stone, it yet speaks thoughts of the heart."--The New York Times Book Review

The Manzoni family by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

18 editions published between 1987 and 2019 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...Set in ducal Italy and post-revolutionary France, The Manzoni Family tells a rich story of passions, writing, rivalries, deaths, and war. It pivots on the figure of Alessandro Manzoni, celebrated Milanese nobleman, man of letters, and author of the masterpiece of nineteenth-century Italian literature, I promessi sposi (The Betrothed). But the tale begins with the matriarchal figure of Giulia, the mother whom the young poet found in Paris after she had abandoned him as an infant. There is Enrichetta, the woman he and his mother chose to be his wife, and the many children she had by him until her death; literary friends from the beau monde in Italy and Paris; and Alessandro's second wife, Teresa, and her children. Against the background of Napoleonic occupation, the reestablishment of Austrian hegemony, and the stirrings of the revolutionary urge for unification and independence, Ginzburg gracefully weaves the story of a dynasty, the Manzoni family, that seems to grow autonomously around the life of the writer and to incorporate all the epic tumult and emotion of the age"--Back cover
Le voci della sera by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

111 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le voci della sera è un breve romanzo del 1961, scritto durante il soggiorno londinese della Ginzburg e alla vigilia del ritorno in Italia. Con uno stile spoglio, fedele al rigore delle notazioni oggettive, la scrittrice esprime in questo romanzo il senso delle storie familiari, la presenza dei vecchi, il crescere doloroso dei giovani, l'allacciarsi e il mutare degli amori e delle amicizie. Della taciturna ragazza che scrive in prima persona il lettore soffre le speranze e le delusioni senza una riga di commento o giudizio o introspezione. L'introduzione è firmata da Italo Calvino. L'edizione è corredata da un apparato comprendente le notizie sul testo, un'antologia critica, una bibliografia e una cronologia della vita e delle opere

La famiglia Manzoni by Natalia Ginzburg( Book )

57 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<<Ho tentato di rimettere insieme la storia della famiglia Manzoni; volevo ricostruirla, ricomporla, allinearla ordinatamente nel tempo. Avevo delle lettere e dei libri. Non volevo esprimere commenti, ma limitarmi a una nuda e semplice successione di fatti. Volevo che i fatti parlassero da sé. Volevo che le lettere, accorate o fredde, cerimoniose o schiette, palesemente menzognere o indubitabilmente sincere, parlassero da sé ... Il protagonista di questa lunga storia famigliare non volevo fosse Alessandro Manzoni. Una storia famigliare non ha un protagonista; ognuno dei suoi membri è di volta in volta illuminato e risospinto nell'ombra. Non volevo che egli avesse piú spazio degli altri; volevo che fosse visto di profilo e di scorcio, e mescolato in mezzo agli altri, confuso nel polverio della vita giornaliera. E tuttavia egli domina la scena; è il capo-famiglia; e gli altri certo non hanno la sua grandezza. E d'altronde egli appare piú degli altri strano, tortuoso, complesso ...>> (N. Ginzburg)
