Why read the classics? by Italo Calvino( Book )

98 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,773 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 road to San Giovanni by Italo Calvino( Book )

50 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Assembled and published posthumously, The Road to San Giovanni offers Calvino's reflections on his own life and work. These five elegant "memory exercises" provide a varied and revealing portrait of a writer who was deeply wary of autobiography: from the title essay's moving evocation of the author's relationship with his father ' couched in a lyrical sketch of Calvino's childhood home ' to a charming account of teenage years spent in the glow of the cinema screen, to Calvino's declaration of purpose as a writer in the final essay's visionary fragments. Heartfelt, affecting, and wise, The Road to San Giovanni will appeal to Calvino's existing fans and win new ones
