The moon and the bonfires by Cesare Pavese( Book )

253 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,920 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

The burning brand: diaries 1935-1950 by Cesare Pavese( Book )

173 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1950, shortly after winning Italy's highest literary award, Cesare Pavese committed suicide. Shocked and bewildered, his friends sought an explanation. Some suggested that it was Pavese's disillusionment with Communism. Others believed it might have been his unhappy love affair with an American film star. The truth was revealed only when Pavese's private diaries were brought to light. For the diaries revealed a tormented man struggling to achieve an elusive emotional maturity consistent with a poet's sensibility. In this quest Pavese failed. In his life the threat of suicide was always implicit. Above all, and despite his extraordinarily powerful intellect, he was a man who sought, until the bitter end, for a "perfect love." His diaries reveal the succession of harrowing disappointments that he met along the way with a pitiless self-analysis, touching nerves which most of us cannot bear to have exposed. It is no accident that the Diaries were hailed on the continent as the finest literary journals since Gide.--From publisher description

The political prisoner by Cesare Pavese( Book )

23 editions published between 1955 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 302 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'
