The moon and the bonfires by Cesare Pavese( Book )

432 editions published between 1950 and 2021 in 8 languages and held by 2,399 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

Hard labor : [poems] by Cesare Pavese( Book )

134 editions published between 1936 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 1,295 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

Among women only by Cesare Pavese( Book )

Published just months before the author's suicide in 1950, this novel has since become one of Pavese's most sought-after books. In this classic, a successful couturier returns to Turin, the city in which she grew up, at the end of World War II. Opening a salon of her own leads her into a nihilistic circle of young hedonists, including the charismatic Rosetta, whose tragic death forms the novel's climax. But Turin itself is at the heart of the story, its pervading melancholy deftly rendered by a master craftsman

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

21 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and held by 822 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 house on the hill by Cesare Pavese( Book )

94 editions published between 1956 and 2021 in 7 languages and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If you want to know what it's like to be a civilian in a time of war, and in particular in northern Italy in the confused, messy, bloody period between September 1943, when the Italian government switched sides, and the end of the war, this book is a good place to start. But this book may thwart your expectations. Although vendettas, reprisals and atrocities take place, along with massive "collateral damage" due to bombing and shelling of cities, almost all of that takes place "offstage". The main character is a fortyish schoolteacher working in Turin and living for safety's sake in the countryside outside of the city. Although Corrado has vaguely anti-Fascist sentiments, he has no interest whatsoever in participating in the resistance. If anything he finds a pleasure in the war (until it gets too close for comfort) since it provides him with a kind of temporary escape from the outside world, giving him an excuse to enjoy isolation in the woods outside the city. This is not a rollicking adventure story but rather a somber and melancholy first-person account of a person who sees destruction and bloodshed from a distance and strives only to avoid it."--Goodreads
