History : a novel by Elsa Morante( Book )

282 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 2,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central character in this powerful and unforgiving novel is Ida Mancuso, a schoolteacher whose husband has died and whose feckless teenage son treats the war as his playground. A German soldier on his way to North Africa rapes her, falls in love with her, and leaves her pregnant with a boy whose survival becomes Ida's passion. Around these two other characters come and go, each caught up by the war which is like a river in flood. We catch glimpses of bombing raids, street crimes, a cattle car from which human cries emerge, an Italian soldier succumbing to frostbite on the Russian front, the dumb endurance of peasants who have lived their whole lives with nothing and now must get by with less than nothing

"On a small island in the Tyrrhenian Sea there lives a boy as innocent as a seabird. Arturo's mother is dead; his father away.

At first hatred and contempt are all the boy feels for his stepmother. In time, Arturo and Nunziata re-create the tragedy and passion that are as old as the history of men and women"--provided by

Il mondo salvato dai ragazzini e altri poemi by Elsa Morante( Book )

74 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in Italian in 1968, The World Saved by Kids was written in the aftermath of deep personal change and in the context of what Elsa Morante called the "great youth movement exploding against the funereal machinations of the organized contemporary world." Morante believed that it was only the youth who could truly hear her revolutionary call. With the fiftieth anniversary of the tumultuous events of 1968 approaching, there couldn't be a more timely moment for this first English translation of Morante's work to appear.Greeted by Antonio Porta as one of the most important books of its decade, The World Saved by Kids showcases Morante's true mastery of tone, rhythm, and imagery as she works elegy, parody, storytelling, song, and more into an act of linguistic magic through which Gramsci and Rimbaud, Christ and Antigone, Mozart and Simone Weil, and a host of other figures join the sassy, vulnerable neighborhood kids in a renewal of the word's timeless, revolutionary power to explore and celebrate life's insoluble paradox
