The time of indifference by Alberto Moravia( Book )

490 editions published between 1929 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 2,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in Rome, The Time of Indifference tells a deceptively simple story. Five characters are cast loose on the sea of modern life - obsessed with what they want, what they feel they are owed, the wrongs that have been done them, their loneliness. The intrigues of these family members and lovers serve to expose the hollow core of bourgeois society in the early twentieth century, and what Moravia destroys forever in this pitiless novel is the illusion that a world of ever-growing material comfort can ever feed the human soul."--Jacket

The woman of Rome by Alberto Moravia( Book )

452 editions published between 1947 and 2013 in 20 languages and held by 2,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The glitter and cynicism of Rome under Mussolini provide the background of what is probably Alberto Moravia's best and best-known novel - The Woman of Rome. It's the story of Adriana, a simple girl with no fortune but her beauty who models naked for a painter, accepts gifts from men, and could never quite identify the moment when she traded her private dream of home and children for the life of a prostitute. One of the very few novels of the twentieth century which can be ranked with the work of Dostoevsky, The Woman of Rome also tells the stories of the tortured university student Giacomo, a failed revolutionary who refuses to admit his love for Adriana; of the sinister figure of Astarita, the Secret Police officer obsessed with Adriana; and of the coarse and brutal criminal Sonzogno, who treats Adriana as his private property

Alle diese neun handfest zupackenden Erzählungen habeneinen Ich-Erzähler. Alberto Moravia, der Meister des italienischen <<psychologischen Realismus>>, schlüpft jedesmal in eine andere Rolle. Er ist nacheinander- ein Schuhmacher, dem die Ehefrau durchgebrannt ist und der dadurch eine Bewusstseinsspaltung erleidet- der Onkel eines empfindsamen Schulmädchens, das amLeben verzagt; weswegen?- der Hausmeister eines Mietshauses, in dem oben ein romantisch humanistischer Professor wohnt;- der nichtsnutzige (aber ganz nette) Sohn einer alles verzeihenden Mutter- ein Junge, den die Angst vor einem elterlich verordneten Landaufenthalt über den Kopf wächst;- ein stadtstreichender Hochstapler und Schmarotzer, dessen witziger Trick ein einziges Mal danebengeht- ein Vater von viel zu vielen Kindern und Ehemann einer elementar mütterlichen Frau, - ein junger Friseur, der mit seinem Seniorpartner und Schwager wegen einer jungen Nachbarin aneinandergerät;- ein Kellner (später Lastwagenfahrer), der ein Landmädchen auf einsamer Höhe bemerkt. Der so vielfältige Ich-Erzähler und alle Gestalten, die er darstellt, sind <<Kleine Leute>> in Rom: eine Gesellschaft, von der die Rom-Touristen wenig oder nichts wissen und die doch, bei aller Armseligkeit, erstaunlich viel Verstand und Herz zum Vorschein kommen lässt. Italienischer Originaltext und deutsche Übersetzung stehen in Paralleldruck einander gegenüber. Texte für Könner

"Since childhood [Marcello] Clerici has struggled with conflicting urges--a compulsion to hurt others and an obsessive desire to conform. ... When he is assigned to kill a former professor, now in exile, and falls unexpectedly in love with a strange, compelling woman, his life is torn open."--Cover

Il Moravia saggista raccoglie in questo libro tutta una serie di interessanti riletture: Machiavelli, Boccaccio, Pavese, Maupassant fino al celebre saggi su Manzoni e l'ipotesi di un realismo cattolico che impone una nuova angolatura nella lettura dei "Promessi Sposi"
1934 by Alberto Moravia( Book )

76 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in 11 languages and held by 1,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans l'Italie du fascisme triomphant et des fanatismes spontanés, un écrivain désespéré de 27 ans se rend à Capri pour écrire son prochain roman. Deux militantes nazies et homosexuelles s'amusent à leurrer l'artiste, à lui montrer que son grand amour pour une suicidaire décadente est la conséquence d'une plaisanterie pour piéger un bellâtre Italien. Une oeuvre qui souffre des "intentions démonstratrices" de Moravia, qui se situe dans la lignée de ##La nausée## de Sartre sans en avoir la richesse et aborde l'angoisse existentielle sur un mode assez pirandellien, sans oublier la touche de sexualité obsédante chère à l'auteur du ##Mépris## (1955)
Time of desecration by Alberto Moravia( Book )

111 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 10 languages and held by 1,178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman-interview. Sans doute Moravia a-t-il profité de cette oeuvre pour se livrer, une nouvelle fois, à l'inventaire de ses obsessions et exigences érotiques. Comme le souligne Ajame, cette littérature frappe presque toujours au-dessous de la ceinture

A ghost at noon by Alberto Moravia( Book )

151 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Molteni, the narrator, aspires to be a man of letters, but has taken a job as a screenwriter in order to support his beautiful wife, Emilia. Frustrated by his work, he becomes convinced that Emilia no longer loves him--that in fact she despises him-- and as he relentlessly interrogates her about the true nature of her feelings, he makes his deepest fear (or secret desire) come true. Molteni is one of the great appalling characters of twentieth-century fiction--a man of sensitivity and intelligence who is incorrigibly blind to his own nature."--Back cover
Two; a phallic novel by Alberto Moravia( Book )

105 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel, translated from Italian, centers around the dialogue between the male character and his prepotent penis, raising the question about the role of sexuality in creativity. The main character wishes to be a film director, but feels his sexuality interferes with his art. One reviewer noted there was about this book many pages of rather boring "tintillation but no consumation," while another labelled it "weird, but very interesting..."
