Ernesto by Umberto Saba( Book )

84 editions published between 1975 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ernesto, a 16-year-old boy living in Trieste in 1898, has an affair with a 28-year-old worker simply called "the man". Ernesto subsequently has sex with the man frequently, but after an enjoyable experience with a female prostitute, he stops seeing him. He concentrates on studying the violin, and during a concert, Ernesto (now seventeen) meets a beautiful 15-year-old boy, also a violin player. He is called Emilio, nicknamed "Ilio""--
Il canzoniere (1900-1954) by Umberto Saba( Book )

92 editions published between 1945 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un'antologia per rileggere "l'uomo di pena" Saba, il cui percorso poetico è in equilibrio perfetto fra classicità e contemporaneità: la classica perfezione formale delle sue forme poetiche, dove è sedimentato il suono della migliore tradizione lirica italiana, e la sofferta testimonianza della crisi dell'uomo novecentesco. "Saba - sosteneva Pier Paolo Pasolini - è il più difficile dei poeti contemporanei. Al più semplice esame linguistico non c'è parola in Saba, la più comune, il "cuore-amore" della rima famosa, che non risulti immediatamente violentata, o almeno, nei momenti in cui meno chiara fosse la violenza espressiva, malconcia e strappata al suo abituale significato, al suo abituale tono semantico"

Scorciatoie e raccontini by Umberto Saba( Book )

41 editions published between 1946 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brevi componimenti in prosa, di taglio scorciato ed incisivo, che hanno l'accento della poesia e il rigore dell'aforisma. È quasi un genere nuovo, certo tutto suo, che egli chiama "Scorciatoie", perché, in modi rapidi ed ellittici arrivano a conclusioni lontane e spesso sorprendenti". Con questa felice sintesi Piccone Stella, editore della "Nuova Europa", presentava ai lettori gli scritti di Saba pubblicati dalla rivista tra il marzo e il luglio del '45. La politica, la letteratura, l'arte le amicizie e gli incontri colti in un momento drammatico e spensierato, "sotto l'impressione, estremamente piacevole, della dissoluzione di un incubo."

"La produzione in prosa di Saba è relativamente scarna (se paragonata a quella di molti altri poeti del Novecento da Ungaretti a Montale, a Sereni, a Caproni). Si possono individuare tre nuclei cronologici in cui sembra concentrarsi la gran parte del lavoro in prosa di Saba: il primo da collocare tra il 1910 e il 1915, il secondo tra il 1944 e il 1948, il terzo infine tra il 1952 e il 1953" (Dall'introduzione di Mario Lavagetto)
