Le piccole virtù Questa raccolta di saggi e articoli, scritti in vari anni dalla Ginzburg, affinano e migliorano il suo stile, dimostrando le straordinarie capacit comunicative dell autrice Questo libro, pubblicato tra due grandi opere come Le voci della sera e Lessico famigliare, non risulta ridimensionato dall accostamento con le due opere pi celebri della scrittice Le piccole virtpresenta abbozzi, riflessioni e constatazioni della realt che circondava la Ginzburg l ambiente londinese dove viveva, il suo rapporto con il secondo marito, tra passione e incomprensione, episodi rievocati di un infanzia e una giovinezza trascorsa da tempo ma mai dimenticate.Il titolo della raccolta, di carattere antifrastico, chiarifica che, per l autrice, le piccole virt , che consistono soprattutto in un ostentato perbenismo e in una bonomia di maniera, sconsiderata e semplicistica, sono le principali cause di incomprensione, semplicioneria, stupidit , dolori e sofferenze Il tutto ci viene presentato nel consueto stile diretto, immediato ma sapientemente evocativo, con cui la Ginzburg manifestava una dote di ingenuit che riesce ad arrivare al nocciolo delle vicende e dei problemi Questo stile capace, con pochi tratteggi, di rievocare atmosfere e ambienti, non solo fisici, ma soprattutto mentali, e questa ingenuo candore misto a acuta ponderatezza riescono a dare a quest opera il tocco di maestria che tramuta una raccolta di saggi in un grande lavoro artistico.

  4. I am in the minority when it comes to this book And I have wracked my brain trying to understand why it is held in such high, high regard There are a handful of short essays in this collection that I thought were excellent, but I found the majority of them almost interminable The context here, and so many of the essays, is World War II, Italian fascism, the horrors of what unfolded as communities were ravaged Her dismissive, shallow essays on England can be seen as cries for home, I understa I am in the minority when it comes to this book And I have wracked my brain trying to understand why it is held in such high, high regard There are a handful of short essays in this collection that I thought were excellent, but I found the majority of them almost interminable The context here, and so many of the essays, is World War II, Italian fascism, the horrors of what unfolded as communities were ravaged Her dismissive, shallow essays on England can be seen as cries for home, I understand That still doesn t make them great art She s at her best, when ...

  6. Not all the essays are equally compelling in Little Virtues , but those that are good, are very good They are very dense, not in a sense that they are difficult to read but almost every other line is something you d want to underline and remember There are excellent points about what it means being a writer, how to not raise your children and why England is the most melancholy country in the world, among others What bothered me a tiny bit was the impression that she justified her being thr Not all the essays are equally compelling in Little Virtues , but those that are good, are very good They are very dense, not in a sense that they are difficult to read but almost every other line is something you d want to underline and remember There are excellent points about what it means being a writer, how to not raise your children and why England is the most melancholy country in the world, among others What bothered me a tiny bit was the impression that she justified her being through her vocation This was a recurring theme in the book To have a vocation is something that makes you worthwhile, that makes life worthwhile and your children should definitely be set on one without your interference of course it should develop organically Well done if you have a calling but it is clear most people don t and I wish she had use...

  7. In his introduction to the first edition of The Little Virtues, Italo Calvino described Ginzburg s essays as a lesson in literature And that s partly how I think about them too as of a new form of autobiographical writing that is closer to poetry than to prose Not as a consequence of language per se, which is deceptively simple and not exactly lyrical, but rather as a consequence of their sparsity and obliqueness Essence distilled yet not touched upon bluntly They are similar to icebergs, In his introduction to the first edition of The Little Virtues, Italo Calvino described Ginzburg s essays as a lesson in literature And that s partly how I think about them too as of a new form of autobiographical writing that is closer to poetry than to prose Not as a consequence of language per se, which is deceptively simple and not exactly lyrical, but rather as a consequence of their sparsity and obliqueness Essence distilled yet not touched upon bluntly They are similar to icebergs, these essays Clear at the surface, touching depths that cannot be guessed at a first glance, yet devastating when the impact does occur.In terms of writing style, I m not sure if this will sound coherent, but I keep thinking of this collection as of circular water movements in a pond caused by a heavy rainfall or the dropping of a stone The heavy drops, the stone s fall disrupting the water surface are the essence, but instead of describing them directly, Ginzburg writes about...

  10. Italian post war writer except that the earliest essays here date from during WWII when she and her husband, both Italian Jews, were in internal exile he was subsequently killed by the Nazis for his anti fascist activism Ginzburg is famous for the elegant simplicity of her style which makes reading her in Italian manageable as well and her cool chronicling of the domestic and internal aspects of her life, despite having been caught up in some of the most tumultuous public events of her er Italian post war writer except that the earliest essays here date from during WWII when she and her husband, both Italian Jews, were in internal exile he was subsequently killed by the Nazis for his anti fascist activism Ginzburg is famous for the elegant simplicity of her style which makes reading her in Italian manageable as well and her cool chronicling of the domestic and internal aspects of her life, despite having been caught up in some of the most tumultuous public events of her era.Most famous for her 1963 novel Lessico Famigliare Family Sayings , its tenor is anticipated here in the 1962 essay called He and I presumably about her...

  11. If we are rich and want to educate our children so that they have simple habits it must in that case be made very clear that all the money saved by following such simple habits is to be spent, without any hint of meanness, on other people. I was all for giving this a three star before I hit The Son of Man , so kudos to that one Other than that, this is an oddly middle class collection, teetering as it does between utmost disaster and bourgeoisie complacency with some stirring and well reasone If we are rich and want to educate our children so that they have simple habits it must in that case be made very clear that all the money saved by following such simple habits is to be spent, without any hint of meanness, on other people.

  12. 4.5 stars Utterly wonderful, but I ve been too easily distracted recently to give this my complete attention Writing like this deserves clarity and time to really absorb Ginzburg s words and appreciate her ideas So glad I picked this up ...

  13. They do not understand our attitude to reality We are closer to the truth of things I liked some stories in this collectionthan others My favourites were those dealing with war, especially Winter in the Abruzzi 1944 and The Son of Man 1946.

  14. It was a wonderful little book thoughtful, yet, to the point Lots to mull over, so will probably read it again at some point.
