“As far as the education of children is concerned,” states Natalia Ginzburg in this collection of her finest and best-known short essays, “I think they should be taught not the little virtues but the great ones. Not thrift but generosity and an indifference to money; not caution but courage and a contempt for danger; not shrewdness but frankness and a love of truth; not tact but a love of one’s neighbor and self-denial; not a desire for success but a desire to be and to know.” Whether she writes of the loss of a friend, Cesare Pavese; or what is inexpugnable of World War II; or the Abruzzi, where she and her first husband lived in forced residence under Fascist rule; or the importance of silence in our society; or her vocation as a writer; or even a pair of worn-out shoes, Ginzburg brings to her reflections the wisdom of a survivor and the spare, wry, and poetically resonant style her readers have come to recognize. “A glowing light of modern Italian literature . . . Ginzburg’s magic is the utter simplicity of her prose, suddenly illuminated by one word that makes a lightning streak of a plain phrase. . . . As direct and clean as if it were carved in stone, it yet speaks thoughts of the heart.” —The New York Times Book Review

Non è escluso che il valore da sempre accordato all’amicizia possa anche oggi avere effetti benefici sul nostro senso civico, se solo riuscissimo a sostituirla alle molte diffidenze da cui invece siamo animati. L’invito è quello di riscoprire l’amicizia attraverso i suoi “ingredienti”, cioè il bisogno di raccontarsi, la condivisione degli ideali, la gratuità e il rispetto, la libera scelta, il legame forte che la caratterizza (anche in una società liquida), l’eguaglianza e l’amore stesso. Con questa riscoperta dovrebbe essere anche superato il pregiudizio che ha dominato la scena della tradizione, e al quale non ha resistito nemmeno l’aperto e lungimirante Montaigne, circa l’incapacità da parte della donna di nutrire vere e proprie amicizie. Qui non si tratta affatto solo di “letture”, ma anche di “ascolti” sagaci, utili a capire, per esempio, perché Lucio Battisti si “malediceva” dopo aver scelto “una donna per amico”.

Mi resta il ricordo di Lucio, affacciatosi per la prima volta al Festival di Sanremo,in un lontano 1969, fioco ed oggi sideralmente irraggiungibile.I suoi capelli erano bruni e riccioluti, come accarezzati da un soffi o di vento, lo sguardo tanto timido quanto profondo, la voce soave, quasi ad un passo dalla trasparenza vocale, le sue parole profonde come il mare e limpide come un cielo azzurro. Esse ci hanno accompagnato per lo spazio di un mattino tinto di aurora di irripetibile adolescenza. Dopo avere mostrato il miracolo, l’Angelo si è ritirato in una brumosa campagna del Nord, alla fine ha ripreso a volare in alto, tanto più in alto, sempre più in alto.

Narcissus and Goldmund is the story of a passionate yet uneasy friendship between two men of opposite character. Narcissus, an ascetic instructor at a cloister school, has devoted himself solely to scholarly and spiritual pursuits. One of his students is the sensual, restless Goldmund, who is immediately drawn to his teacher's fierce intellect and sense of discipline. When Narcissus persuades the young student that he is not meant for a life of self-denial, Goldmund sets off in pursuit of aesthetic and physical pleasures, a path that leads him to a final, unexpected reunion with Narcissus.
