The moon and the bonfires by Cesare Pavese( Book )

359 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Moon and the Bonfires is a novel of intense lyricism and tragic import, a masterpiece of twentieth-century literature that has been unavailable to American readers for close to fifty years. Here it appears in a vigorous new English version by R.W. Flint, whose earlier translations of Pavese's fiction were acclaimed by Leslie Fiedler as "absolutely lucid and completely incantatory.""--Jacket

La Bella estate = Le Bel été by Cesare Pavese( Book )

"Trois nouvelles : trois lumières, trois douleurs. De la première phrase du recueil : " A cette époque-là c'était toujours fête ", aux derniers mots recouvrant d'un calme linceul le corps d'une suicidée, l'écriture fouille le plein jour de l'activité humaine jusqu'à y toucher le néant et la mort. Un peu comme un œil fasciné passe te repasse sur la blessure d'un beau visage. C'est la fêlure d'angoisse qui accompagne une pâle amoureuse dans tous les trajets (Le Bel été). Puis c'est l'acharnement incertain de trois jeunes gens à suivre autour de la ville les doubles traces de viveurs fatigués et de la nature pléthorique (Le Diable sur les collines). C'est enfin la fièvre vaine qui fait s'agiter quelques femmes volées à elles-mêmes et dissipées en paroles de pure perte (Femmes entre elles). L'art de Pavese est de travailler une matière tout en éclats, les éclats douloureux de l'unité mythique à jamais perdue. Mais ce deuil est en suspension dans une lumière rendre. Mais cette poussière d'instants a été pulvérisée par un virtuose de la pudeur. Le désarroi est immergé dans les plaisirs, on s'offre nu au soleil, on se soûle d'odeurs, on travaille à sa vie. La souffrance parle au discours indirect, on dirait que sa voix est assourdie par une fatigue heureuse. Un an après la parution de ce livre, Pavese mettait, comme on dit, fin à ses jours. C'était le 27 août 1950, un bel été
Hard labor : [poems] by Cesare Pavese( Book )

14 editions published between 1961 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fuente de la poesía es siempre un misterio, una inspiración, una conmovida perplejidad ante algo irracional - tierra desconocida. Pero el acto de la poesía -si es lícito distinguir así, separar la llama de la materia ardiente- es una voluntad absoluta de ver claro, de reducir a razón, de saber. El mito y el logos. Quien ha visto una vez en la propia inspiración, quien ha reducido a palabras, a lenguaje, articulándola en el tiempo y en el espacio, la extática maravilla del ser, resígnese y a propósito del mito en cuestión no se finja a sí mismo, para volver a gustar el tormentoso placer, una virginidad que ha perdido. Sí, entendámonos bien, su visión, su reducción del mito a figura, ha sido exhaustiva y soberana (y tal visión no es nunca deslumbrante; se necesitan días y hasta años de tormentosas tentativas y búsquedas); puede conformarse y esperar, con ecuanimidad, que de la maraña de la conciencia, del recuerdo y de la maceración le nazca una nueva virginidad, una nueva inspiración, un nuevo mito. Cesare Pavese"--Contratapa

American literature; essays and opinions by Cesare Pavese( Book )

16 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cesare Pavese (1908-1950) was the leading Italian scholar of American literature of the generation that came to maturity under Mussolini. He was not only an acute and wide-ranging literary critic, but also a sensitive poet and novelist. In addition, he was a prodigious translator. In collaboration with Elio Vittorini, he translated and brought to the attention of the Italian public the works of many important American writers. American literature helped to give direction to Pavese's creative work and was a resource for his personal literary campaign against Fascism.Pavese was a non-academic critic, though far less anti - academic than D. H. Lawrence. His first purpose was to use American literature to subvert Italian literature, but beyond that there were a number of issues on which he disagreed with standard American criticism. When he does, his wild, original energy of discovery can trigger a welcome change of focus for our views of American writing.Pavese never visited or lived in America; it was for him a foreign country, although a shifting and sliding special case. He had no stake in its sectional chauvinisms. He had a vital stake in its whole literature because, as his communications to Vittorini make clear, he had a stake in the literature of the whole world. For a while, America seemed to him the probable center of that whole. This was the center where things were happening in the world of the mind, and where the future was being born and licked into shape. Paveses's writings about American literature still offer original and unsparing insights."--Provided by publisher

The political prisoner by Cesare Pavese( Book )

35 editions published between 1955 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Political Prisoner has its autobiographical roots in Pavese's own arrest and imprisonment in Calabria for his writings in the anti-fascist magazine La Cultura. This story describes the day to day life of Stefano, an anti-fascist who has served a prison sentence and is banished to a remote southern Italian seaside resort where he awaits an official pardon. Pavese describes the monotony, the grimness and the sensuality of life in the village through the eyes of a man who realises his habits have been broken. When the summer ends Stefano can no longer kill the days by swimming and lying on the seashore. His life is empty, relationships seem pointless and he begins to take refuge in his dreams. The second novella, The Beautiful Summer, is a tale of corruption and maturity based a colony of inferior artists and their models in Turin. When a fourteen-year-old Ginia falls in love with one of the artists from this group she gradually comes to comprehend not the glamour but the futility and callousness of so-called bohemian 'freedom'
