I promessi sposi, storia milanese del secolo XVII scoperta e rifatta da Alessandro Manzoni by Alessandro Manzoni( Book )

211 editions published between 1825 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Non avrà fortuna questo libro, perché troppo dotto per gli umili e troppo umile per i dotti; è di moralità ipocrita, e perciò non potrà vivere." Con questo poco lungimirante giudizio Vincenzo Monti salutava l'uscita dei "Promessi sposi". Come ben sappiamo, si sbagliava. Perché fin dalla sua prima apparizione nel 1827 e con la successiva rielaborazione del 1840-42 (quella che qui si pubblica), "I Promessi sposi" si impose come il grande romanzo nazionale che all'Italia mancava. Nella vicenda seicentesca dei due fidanzati che solo dopo infinite peripezie riescono a convolare a nozze, infatti, è racchiuso quanto di meglio la letteratura possa dare: una trama che ancora cattura, una finezza psicologica che stupisce, un'ironia tanto sottile quanto irresistibile, l'incanto di una lingua raffinata e popolare, un profondo senso della morale e della storia. Con un saggio di Italo Calvino. Introduzione di Gabriella Mezzanotte

Alessandro Manzoni's The Count of Carmagnola and Adelchis by Alessandro Manzoni( Book )

81 editions published between 1820 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A leading figure in Italian Romanticism and the Risorgimento, Alessandro Manzoni (1785-1873) is best known for The Betrothed, a historical novel set in northern Italy in the early seventeenth century. Although the success of this monumental novel eclipsed his reputation as a playwright, Manzoni himself prominently placed his two verse tragedies, The Count of Carmagnola (1820) and Adelchis (1822), at the beginning of a volume of his complete works, emphasizing their personal significance in his oeuvre. Both dramas reflect Manzoni's lifelong passion for history and confirm Georg Lukacs's assessment of Manzoni as "the most important exponent of historical drama at the time in Western Europe."" "Adelchis, set at the end of the eighth century, describes the events that led to the fall of the Lombard Kingdom under the joint reign of Desiderius and his son Adelchis. The Count of Carmagnola chronicles the conflict between the title character, a fiery Renaissance general, and the Republic of Venice. In his enthusiastic review of The Count of Carmagnola, Goethe congratulated Manzoni for "having abandoned the old rules and made such serious and firm progress on the new path that one can now form new rules on the model of this work.""
