Román o psaní románu, který ve dvou částech, tj. Prologu a Deníku, vypráví o levicově orientovaném novináři měšťáckého původu, který si utvořil mýtus o lidu jako o jediném nositeli všeho, co je ve světě autentické a ožení seprotose švadlenou. Jednou však pochopí, že svou ženu pro velké povahové rozdíly nemiluje a náhle vše, co se mu až dosud zdálo autentické se mu převrací v neautentické. Protože touží napsat román s maximální mírou autenticity, začnepozorovat život-odtud název Pozornost-a zaměřovat se na věci podstatné a vede si o všem deník, který se má stát základem jeho románu
Time of desecration by Alberto Moravia( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman-interview. Sans doute Moravia a-t-il profité de cette oeuvre pour se livrer, une nouvelle fois, à l'inventaire de ses obsessions et exigences érotiques. Comme le souligne Ajame, cette littérature frappe presque toujours au-dessous de la ceinture
A ghost at noon by Alberto Moravia( Book )

8 editions published between 1955 and 1999 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contempt is a brilliant and unsettling work by one of the revolutionary masters of modern European literature. All the qualities for which Alberto Moravia is justly famous'his cool clarity of expression, his exacting attention to psychological complexity and social pretension, his still-striking openness about sex'are evident in this story of a failing marriage. Contempt (which was to inspire Jean-Luc Godard's no-less-celebrated film) is an unflinching examination of desperation and self-deception in the emotional vacuum of modern consumer society

En plus de bouleverser les traditionnels concepts de classicisme vs. romantisme, cet ouvrage important de 1930, enfin accessible en français, réintègre, comme le suppose son titre, tout un ensemble de textes touchant le fantastique et les thèmes maudits (sadisme, satanisme, érotisme) que la fin du siècle exaltera avec Baudelaire, Lautréamont et, pour reprendre deux exemples en annexes: Swinburne et d'Annunzio.

Alle diese neun handfest zupackenden Erzählungen habeneinen Ich-Erzähler. Alberto Moravia, der Meister des italienischen <<psychologischen Realismus>>, schlüpft jedesmal in eine andere Rolle. Er ist nacheinander- ein Schuhmacher, dem die Ehefrau durchgebrannt ist und der dadurch eine Bewusstseinsspaltung erleidet- der Onkel eines empfindsamen Schulmädchens, das amLeben verzagt; weswegen?- der Hausmeister eines Mietshauses, in dem oben ein romantisch humanistischer Professor wohnt;- der nichtsnutzige (aber ganz nette) Sohn einer alles verzeihenden Mutter- ein Junge, den die Angst vor einem elterlich verordneten Landaufenthalt über den Kopf wächst;- ein stadtstreichender Hochstapler und Schmarotzer, dessen witziger Trick ein einziges Mal danebengeht- ein Vater von viel zu vielen Kindern und Ehemann einer elementar mütterlichen Frau, - ein junger Friseur, der mit seinem Seniorpartner und Schwager wegen einer jungen Nachbarin aneinandergerät;- ein Kellner (später Lastwagenfahrer), der ein Landmädchen auf einsamer Höhe bemerkt. Der so vielfältige Ich-Erzähler und alle Gestalten, die er darstellt, sind <<Kleine Leute>> in Rom: eine Gesellschaft, von der die Rom-Touristen wenig oder nichts wissen und die doch, bei aller Armseligkeit, erstaunlich viel Verstand und Herz zum Vorschein kommen lässt. Italienischer Originaltext und deutsche Übersetzung stehen in Paralleldruck einander gegenüber. Texte für Könner
