A Life is the gruelling tale of the frustrated existence of a bank clerk with a poetic soul. The artistic aspirations of the protagonist and the emptiness of his daily life become tragic in the great divide between what he wants and what he actually has and gets. Alfonso the bank clerk wants to be a poet and seems to be falling in love with Annetta, the vain and arrogant daughter of his boss. But the emptiness of both his attempts at writing and at love lead to an ironic and painful conclusion
Emilio's carnival = Senilità by Italo Svevo( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 2001 in Italian and German and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Senilita, Svevo tells the story of the amorous entanglement of Emilio, a failed writer already old at thirty-five, and Angiolina, a seductively beautiful but promiscuous young woman. A study in jealousy and self-torment, the novel traces the intoxicating effect of a narcissistic and amoral woman on an indecisive daydreamer who vacillates between guilt and moral smugness."--Jacket
I racconti by Italo Svevo( Book )

9 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in Italian and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il libro è una raccolta dei racconti che Svevo scrisse durante la sua lunga attività letteraria interrotta purtroppo dall'inciedente stradale in cui perse la vita il 13 settembre del 1928. Le tematiche trattate sono quelle che lui ha affrontato in tutti i suoi romanzi: la condizione dell'uomo comune, del piccolo borgherse, la sua mediocrità, i suoi vizi e le sue abitudini. Per questo l'uomo sveviano può essere definito un antieroe, un uomo senza qualità che non sa vivere come e con gli altri ma che però è pienamente consapevole del proprio fallimento. Dunque i protagonisti dei romanzi di Svevo sono dei vinti, vittime non tanto degli eventi, spesso i più comuni, che qualunque persona sana saprebbe affrontare a proprio vantaggio, bensì sono vittime del Caso o delle strutture sociali
