1916: IL SACRIFICIO DI UNA GENERAZIONE L’EPOPEA DELLA GRANDE GUERRA DIVENTA ROMANZO Una generazione di ragazzi cresciuta all’inizio del secolo scorso nelle aule dell’Accademia di Brera volle rivoluzionare l’arte. Si chiamavano Boccioni, Erba, Sironi, Carrà, Russolo. Seguivano le idee avanguardiste del più anziano tra loro, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, l’inventore del futurismo. Con le loro furibonde serate artistiche animarono la città e scandalizzarono i benpensanti milanesi. Erano sinceri interventisti, idealizzavano la guerra come igiene del mondo e partirono senza indugio per il fronte nel Battaglione Lombardo Volontari Ciclisti Automobilisti. Molti di loro non tornarono. Fra questi c’era un giovane comasco, Antonio Sant’Elia, architetto dal talento luminoso ma sfortunato. Tutto ciò che ci resta di lui sono una manciata di disegni, ma così belli, così geniali da influenzare l’immaginario dell’intero Novecento. Morì da eroe, sul Carso, nel 1916, esattamente cento anni fa. È lui il protagonista di questo romanzo corale dalla scrittura vibrante e appassionata, capace di farci rivivere l’epopea di una nazione. Gianni Biondillo racconta i sogni e le speranze di questi giovani italiani, illusi dalla retorica dannunziana che li portò sul campo di battaglia a cercare la bella morte. Per scoprirla insanguinata e orribile.

Instant New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of 2016 A Time Magazine Top 10 Novel of 2016 A Times Literary Supplement Best Book of 2016 “Dazzling . . . A profound novel about the claims of identity, history, family, and the burdens of a broken world.” —Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s “Fresh Air” In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, “Abraham!” before ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” Later, when Isaac calls out, “My father!” before asking him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others’? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer’s first novel in eleven years—a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home—and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer’s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer’s stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a novelist who has fully come into his own as one of our most important writers.

In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway made his first extended visit to Italy in thirty years. His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, provided the inspiration for Across the River and into the Trees, the story of Richard Cantwell, a war-ravaged American colonel stationed in Italy at the close of the Second World War, and his love for a young Italian countess. A poignant, bittersweet homage to love that overpowers reason, to the resilience of the human spirit, and to the worldweary beauty and majesty of Venice, Across the River and into the Trees stands as Hemingway's statement of defiance in response to the great dehumanizing atrocities of the Second World War. Hemingway's last full-length novel published in his lifetime, it moved John O'Hara in The New York Times Book Review to call him “the most important author since Shakespeare.”

This study explores the tensions and contradictions in the themes and style of L'Allegria. It establishes links between Ungaretti and the French Symbolist poets, and reexamines the collection's affinity with the work of De Chirico, Cubism, Futurism and Surrealism. Offering ground-breaking views, particularly on the war poems, it demonstrates how Ungaretti used the obscure nature of Hermetic language to express his proto-Fascist and Nietzschean sympathies, thus destroying the myth of Ungaretti as a 'man of peace' searching for a religious answer to the problems of existence.
