"In Senilita, Svevo tells the story of the amorous entanglement of Emilio, a failed writer already old at thirty-five, and Angiolina, a seductively beautiful but promiscuous young woman. A study in jealousy and self-torment, the novel traces the intoxicating effect of a narcissistic and amoral woman on an indecisive daydreamer who vacillates between guilt and moral smugness."--BOOK JACKET

"A Life is the story of the frustrated existence of a bank clerk with a poetic soul. The artistic aspirations of the protagonist and the emptiness of his daily life become tragic in the divide between what he wants and what he actually has and gets."

The failure of both his attempts at writing and at love lead to an ironic and painful conclusion."--Jacket

The nice old man and the pretty girl and other stories by Italo Svevo( Book )
107 editions published between 1929 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 452 libraries worldwide
... The sin of an old man is equal to about two sins of a young man. The fable-like story of an old man's sexual obsession with a young woman is a distillation of Italo Svevo's concerns--attraction of an older man to a younger woman, individual conscience versus social convention, and the cost of sexual desire. This novella is a marvel of psychological insight, following the man's vacillations and tortuous self-justifications to their tragic-comic end. It is presented here in a translation first commissioned and published by Virginia Woolf for her Hogarth Press. The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time.

I racconti by Italo Svevo( Book )
35 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 229 libraries worldwide
Il libro è una raccolta dei racconti che Svevo scrisse durante la sua lunga attività letteraria interrotta purtroppo dall'inciedente stradale in cui perse la vita il 13 settembre del 1928. Le tematiche trattate sono quelle che lui ha affrontato in tutti i suoi romanzi: la condizione dell'uomo comune, del piccolo borgherse, la sua mediocrità, i suoi vizi e le sue abitudini. Per questo l'uomo sveviano può essere definito un antieroe, un uomo senza qualità che non sa vivere come e con gli altri ma che però è pienamente consapevole del proprio fallimento. Dunque i protagonisti dei romanzi di Svevo sono dei vinti, vittime non tanto degli eventi, spesso i più comuni, che qualunque persona sana saprebbe affrontare a proprio vantaggio, bensì sono vittime del Caso o delle strutture sociali

Memoir of Italo Svevo by Livia Veneziani Svevo( Book )
16 editions published between 1950 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 71 libraries worldwide
"The Italian Italo Svevo had many things in common with other writers: a long struggle for recognition, a mutually respectful friendship with a noteworthy author (in Svevo's case, James Joyce), and a long list of neuroses. Unlike some writers, however, Svevo was fortunate to have a wife who worked tirelessly on his behalf." "After Svevo's death in 1928 at the age of sixty-six, Livia Veneziani Svevo penned this portrait of a serious artist and a loving, if quirky, marriage. Memoir of Italo Svevo illuminates its subject's darkly comic novels and shows how a successful middle-aged businessman, as obsessed with smoking as with his abandoned literary ambitions, became one of the great authors of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET
