Alla cieca by Claudio Magris( )

36 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who is the mysterious narrator of Blindly? Clearly a recluse and a fugitive, but what more of him can we discern? Baffled by the events of his own life, he muses, "When I write, and even now when I think back on it, I hear a kind of buzzing, blathered words that I can barely understand, gnats droning around a table lamp, that I have to continually swat away with my hand, so as not to lose the thread." Claudio Magris, one of Europe's leading authors and cultural philosophers, offers as narrator of Blindly a madman. Yes, but a pazzo lucido, a lucid madman, a single narrative voice populated by various characters. He is Jorgen Jorgenson, the nineteenth-century adventurer who became king of Iceland but was condemned to forced labor in the Antipodes. He is also Comrade Cippico, a communist militant, imprisoned for years in Tito's gulag on the island Goli Otok. And he is the many partisans, prisoners, sailors, and stowaways who have encountered the perils of travel, war, and adventure. In a shifting choral monologue--part confession, part psychiatric session--a man remembers (invents, falsifies, hides, screams out) his life, a voyage into the nether regions of history, and in particular the twentieth century."--Publisher's website
Microcosms by Claudio Magris( Book )

87 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the forests of Monte Nevoso, to the hidden valleys of the Tyrol, to a Trieste cafe, Microcosms pieces together a mosaic of stories--comic, tragic, picaresque, nostalgic--from life's minor characters. Their worlds might be small, but they are far from minimalist: in them flashes the great, the meaningful, the unrepeatable significance of every existence."--Publisher's description
Danube by Claudio Magris( Book )

194 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this fascinating journey Claudio Magris, whose knowledge is encyclopaedic and whose curiosity limitless, guides his reader from the river's source in the Bavarian hills through Austro-Hungary and the Balkans to the Black Sea. Along the way he raises the ghosts that inhabit the houses and monuments - from Ovid and Marcus Aurelius to Kafka and Canetti - and in so doing sets his finger on the pulse of Central Europe, the vital crucible of a culture that draws on influences of East and West, of Christendom and Islam."--Publisher description

Blameless = Non luogo a procedere by Claudio Magris( Book )

24 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Claudio Magris's searing new novel ruthlessly confronts the human obsession with war and its savagery in every age and every country. His tale centers on a man whose maniacal devotion to the creation of a Museum of War involves both a horrible secret and the hope of redemption. Luisa Brooks, his museum's curator, a descendant of victims of Jewish exile and of black slavery, has a complex dilemma: will the collections she exhibits save humanity from repeating its tragic and violent past? Or might the display of articles of war actually valorize and memorialize evil atrocities? In Blameless Magris affirms his mastery of the novel form, interweaving multiple themes and traveling deftly through history. With a multitude of stories, the author investigates individual sorrow, the societal burden of justice aborted, and the ways in which memory and historical evidence are sabotaged or sometimes salvaged

Lei dunque capirà by Claudio Magris( Book )

Una donna si confida o forse si confessa a un misterioso Presidente. È in un luogo chiuso: forse un carcere o magari un ospedale. Aveva ottenuto un permesso, una concessione eccezionale per le circostanze in cui si trova, ma alla fine ha deciso di non utilizzarlo e ora spiega le sue ragioni: i motivi profondi e sorprendenti per i quali ha rinunciato a seguire l'uomo che ama e amerà sempre. Il tono è volutamente leggero e brioso, ma questo racconto trasmette lo sgomento di fronte al mistero della morte e della vita
