Born in Lyon of France in 1900, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry considered himself primarily as a pilot. For 20 years he made numerous cartography and mailing missions for commercial companies. Air transmissions were the key factor concerning his professional and literature profile. He started writing The Little Prince during the WW II, when he was forced to abandon airforce (due to Germany’s invasion in France) and seek refuge in New York. His great desire of going back, hopefully after the war, is depicted as the nostalgia of being a child again, something that is so evident in Little Prince. The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince’s story. The narrator’s plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive. Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears. The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep. The narrator consents to the strange fellow’s request. They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet. He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets. Often puzzled by the grown-ups’ behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion. Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren’t. Children use their heart to feel what’s really important, not the eyes…

Traduzione di Fausta Cataldi Villari Edizioni integrali Per combattere la concorrenza dei mezzi di trasporto terrestri, bisognava volare di notte e, nei tempi eroici dell’aviazione, non era difficile rimetterci la vita. E allora perché Fabien ha accettato di alzarsi in volo, in condizioni estreme, sapendo che potrebbe essere l’ultima volta, mentre chi lo aspetta muore d’angoscia? Per amore del prossimo? Per senso del dovere? Certo, sono motivazioni che possono smuovere le montagne, ma ce n’è un’altra, ancora più forte, che ha spinto l’uomo ad andare sempre oltre i suoi limiti: la sfida a questi limiti, all’ignoto, al mai tentato prima. Saint-Exupéry racconta una storia di cui tante volte era stato protagonista, perché anche lui volava di notte per portare la posta, prima e durante la guerra. Ma non si sentiva un eroe, non pensava di sacrificarsi per gli altri: semplicemente, non poteva sottrarsi alla sfida. Accettarla e andare “oltre” aveva forse più valore della vita stessa. Vol de nuit, scritto nel 1931, ottenne il premio Femina nello stesso anno e rese celebre il suo autore. L’aviatore, del 1926, è il primo racconto di Antoine de Saint-Exupéry e racconta la storia di Jacques Bernis, divenuto pilota di aerei per sfuggire al grigiore della vita in provincia.Antoine de Saint-Exupéry(Lione, 29 giugno 1900 – mar Mediterraneo, 31 luglio 1944), è stato uno scrittore e aviatore francese. Oltre a Il Piccolo Principe, uno dei libri più letti e amati nel mondo, è anche autore di Volo di notte e L’aviatore pubblicati in volume unico da Newton Compton editori.

Cura e traduzione di Riccardo Reim Edizione integrale Una bizzarra coincidenza, una prodigiosa rassomiglianza, uno scambio di vestiti fatto per gioco da due ragazzi... Su tali semplici elementi è costruito questo celebre libro di Mark Twain, che attinge a un motivo ricorrente della narrativa universale: lo scambio di ruoli. È quanto fanno Edward, erede al trono d’Inghilterra, e il piccolo vagabondo Tom Canty, rischiando, senza volere, di non poter più tornare indietro, vittime di loschi trafficanti o di funzionari ottusi. Tom e Edward (il futuro Edoardo VI, figlio di Enrico VIII, che passerà alla storia come uno dei sovrani più illuminati) vivranno innumerevoli avventure, e quindi la “favola con morale” troverà il suo lieto fine. Twain conduce la narrazione con grande perizia e con il suo consueto humour, nonché con una salutare dose di antidoto democratico alle romantiche idealizzazioni di un passato che l’America aveva abiurato.Mark Twainpseudonimo di Samuel Langhorne Clemens, nacque a Florida (Missouri) nel 1835. Ex tipografo ed ex battelliere, scrisse, dopo la guerra civile, i suoi capolavori, legati alla stagione dell’infanzia e al paesaggio del Mississippi: Le avventure di Tom Sawyer (1876) e Le avventure di Huckleberry Finn (1884), entrambi pubblicati dalla Newton Compton. Morì a Redding nel 1910.

Based off a true story, a group of Jewish partisans fight the Nazis behind enemy lines during the final year of World War II. Primo Levi’s powerful novel is equal parts suspenseful and philosophical. World War II is in its final throes. As the Nazis retreat from the Red Army, much of Europe is left in total devastation. Against this backdrop, the watchmaker Mendel, who lost his wife and entire village to the Nazis, meets Leonid, a teenage escapee from a concentration camp. Stranded behind German lines, the pair makes their way through a desolate landscape to join a group of resistance fighters intent on sabotaging the enemy and liberating Jewish prisoners. An epic story stretching from Eastern Soviet Union to Northern Italy, If Not Now, When? is a novel about acts of resistance—both small and large—against impossible odds. Along with Elie Wiesel and Hannah Arendt, Primo Levi is remembered as one of the most powerful and perceptive writers on the Holocaust and the Jewish experience during World War II. This is an essential book both for students and literary readers. Reading Primo Levi is a lesson in the resiliency of the human spirit.

"Tales, " by Edgar Allan Poe, is a collection of 25 stories from the literary father of the mysterious and the macabre. These individual pieces, which include "The Fall of the House of Usher, " and "Silence: A Fable, " together make up the body of both "Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque" and "Tales of the Folio Club." Taken as a whole, Poe's writing has cast its dark and exquisite shadow over many genres of literature, from the mysteries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to the science fiction of Jules Verne, but in this collection the author's ability to explore the darker corners of the readers' psyche comes to the fore. Such is the power of his storytelling that his tales retain their eerie power to delight and terrify in equal measure more than a century and a half after his death.
