Virginia Woolf non fu solo la grande romanziera che tutti conosciamo, ma anche una raffinata saggista, una critica acutissima, un’instancabile pubblicista.Lettrice onnivora e anarchica, cercò nei libri «una forma per il caos», vi trovò universi abitati da creature umane, con cui intrecciare ininterrotte conversazioni. Fin dalle prime recensioni lavorò senza pregiudizi: che si trattasse di epistolari, memorie o biografie, saggi critici o romanzi, autori celebri o emeriti sconosciuti, lo studio preparatorio era accurato, il giudizio schietto. La curiosità la guidava senza alcun preconcetto, alimentava i suoi piaceri più intensi, leggere e scrivere, due atti annodati fra loro, due oscure potenze che, finoalla fine, si definirono e si alimentarono reciprocamente.Le qualità della sua penna erano forza, grazia e trasparenza. La sua lingua, ironica e originale, ha attraversato il tempo e lo spazio con una immediatezza folgorante. Femminista, nel senso proprio della consapevolezza di essere una donna, dalla sua scrittura non traspare mai una lagna, nessuna recriminazione, con lei vediamo al lavoro un occhio lucido e spietato, che non perdona, ma spesso sorride e fa ridere. «Pensare le cose come sono» e «dire la verità» le bussole di sempre.In una parola, integrità: «Seguire il proprio istinto, usare il proprio cervello, trarre le conclusionida so li». Sulla disciplina rigorosa applicata alla sua officina saggistica plasmò la prima vera sperimentazionenarrativa, stilistica e formale, messa a punto fin dalla Stanza di Jacob. Gli anni prodigiosi della maturità, in cui lettura e scrittura si nutrirono con gioia e sicurezza, portarono alla com posizione dei suoi capolavori.Liliana Rampello ha qui scelto, tagliato, cucito, montato in un nuovo percorso articoli e saggi noti e meno noti – molti inediti in Italia –, illuminando di una luce suggestiva la pienezza e la felicità di testi che sono, infine, un inno al piacere, all’intelligenza delle cose e della realtà, l’«auto biografia di una lettrice» che scrisse certo per guadagnare le sue ghinee, ma senza mai perdere di vista la ragione ultima per cui parlare: l’amicizia, ovvero quelle libere relazioni umane su cui fondò la sua vita.Voltando pagina è la storia di un infaticabile lavoro critico che ha accompagnato il laboratorio creativo e le invenzioni narrative di un’icona letteraria del Novecento, un appassionato, inesauribile omaggio all’«arte della lettura».

From the author of the critically acclaimed Absolution, an astonishing, nail-biting story powered by a fierce anger at the utter failure of the American dream, and the greatest fears that lurk in every one of usPoplar Farm has been in Louise's family for generations, inherited by her sharecropping forebear from a white landowner after a lynching. Now, the farm has been carved up, the trees torn down; a mini-massacre replicating the destruction of lives and societies taking place all over America. Architect of this destruction is Paul Krovik, a property developer soon driven insane by the failure of his dream. Julia and Nathaniel arrive from Boston with their son, Copley, and buy up Paul's signature home in a foreclosure sale. They move into the half-finished subdivision and settle in to their brave new world. Yet violence lies just beneath the surface of this land, and simmers deep within Nathaniel. The great trees bear witness, Louise lives on in her beleaguered farmhouse, and as reality shifts, and the edges of what is right and wrong blur and are lost, Copley becomes convinced that someone is living in the house with them.

De l'etude de quelques auteurs classiques a l'analyse du role des illustrations, en passant par la bande dessinee et le theatre pour les enfants, ce volume analyse le vaste champ de l'ecriture pour la jeunesse. Differentes contributions se penchent sur la traduction de la litterature de jeunesse, et plus particulierement sur sa nature intersemiotique. Elles abordent de la sorte la problematique de la voix du traducteur et les principes theoriques guidant ce-dernier, ou se concentrent specifiquement sur diverses litteratures nationales. Un dernier axe de reflexion, enfin, offre un apercu sur la traduction audiovisuelle, ses principes theoriques, ses realisations concretes et ses effets du point de vue de la reception. Les contributions reunies dans ce volume sont en francais, anglais et italien. The first section of this volume features a variety of essays on writing for children, ranging from studies of classic authors to an analysis of the role of pictures in children's books, to an examination of comics and theatre for the young. Subjects addressed in the second section include the intersemiotic nature of translating for children, the question of the translator's voice, the theoretical principles that best aid translators in the field of children's literature, as well as chapters exploring the idea of national literatures for the young. The third and final section offers insights into audiovisual translation for children. These contributions focus on theories and models for this kind of translational activity, as well as addressing a number of real-life cases and their reception. The volume features contributions in three languages: French, English and Italian."

The brand-new official Minecraft novel is an action-packed thriller! When a new virtual-reality version of the game brings her dreams—and doubts—to life, one player must face her fears. Bianca has never been good at following the plan. She’s more of an act-now, deal-with-the-consequences-later kind of person. But consequences can’t be put off forever, as Bianca learns when she and her best friend, Lonnie, are in a terrible car crash. Waking up in the hospital, almost paralyzed by her injuries, Bianca is faced with questions she’s not equipped to answer. She chooses instead to try a new virtual-reality version of Minecraft that responds to her every wish, giving her control over a world at the very moment she thought she’d lost it. As she explores this new realm, she encounters a mute, glitching avatar she believes to be Lonnie. Bianca teams up with Esme and Anton, two kids who are also playing on the hospital server, to save her friend. But the road to recovery isn’t without its own dangers. The kids are swarmed by mobs seemingly generated by their fears and insecurities, and now Bianca must deal with the uncertainties that have been plaguing her: Is Lonnie really in the game? And can Bianca help him return to reality?
