Why read the classics? by Italo Calvino( Book )

111 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Italo Calvino was not only a prolific master of fiction, he was also an uncanny reader of literature, a keen critic of astonishing range. This is the most comprehensive collection of Calvino's literary criticism available in English, accounting for the enduring importance to our lives of crucial writers of the Western canon. Here--spanning more than two millennia, from antiquity to postmodernism--are thirty-six immediately relevant, elegantly written, accessible ruminations on the writers, poets, and scientists who meant most to Calvino at different stages of his life. At a time when the Western canon and the very notion of "literary greatness" have come under increasing disparagement by the vanguard of so-called multiculturalism, Calvino gives us an inspiring corrective.--From publisher description

The results are never the anticipated ones

Nueva edición revisada. Estas breves historias, algunas violentas, otras amargas, otras misteriosas y muchas grotescas, evocan, directa o indirectamente, la experiencia bélica aún cercana para Italo Calvino; pero la ternura que imprime a sus personajes más crueles, risibles o patéticos, la magia que se cuela siempre por las narraciones más impregnadas de un realismo casi costumbrista y la transparencia de la escritura nos revelan a un autor ;ya en sus comienzos; de una deslumbrante y sorprendente madurez literaria
