Si scrive male, si scrive troppo, si scrivono cose inutili. La smania di parlare e di scrivere è una patologia conclamata della nostra era ossessionata dal bisogno di esternazione a ogni costo. In tempi in cui fioriscono da ogni parte manuali su come scrivere meglio e superare il noto “blocco dello scrittore”, questa breve trattazione dell’abate Dinouart, apparsa per la prima volta nel 1771 e da allora continuamente ristampata, propone un vero e proprio ribaltamento prospettico del problema comunicativo. L’arte di tacere non è un semplice invito al silenzio, un manifesto del mutismo, ma un’analisi delle infinite possibilità della continenza verbale e scritta.

A Brief History Of Portable Literature

A reader’s fictional tour of the art and lives of some of the great 20th-century Surrealists An author (a version of Vila-Matas himself) presents a short “history” of a secret society, the Shandies, who are obsessed with the concept of “portable literature.” The society is entirely imagined, but in this rollicking, intellectually playful book, its members include writers and artists like Marcel Duchamp, Aleister Crowley, Witold Gombrowicz, Federico García Lorca, Man Ray, and Georgia O’Keefe. The Shandies meet secretly in apartments, hotels, and cafes all over Europe to discuss what great literature really is: brief, not too serious, penetrating the depths of the mysterious. We witness the Shandies having adventures in stationary submarines, underground caverns, African backwaters, and the cultural capitals of Europe.

A novel of a delightful eccentric on a search for truth, by the renowned author of Invisible Cities. In The New York Times Book Review, the poet Seamus Heaney praised Mr. Palomar as a series of “beautiful, nimble, solitary feats of imagination.” Throughout these twenty-seven intricately structured chapters, the musings of the crusty Mr. Palomar consistently render the world sublime and ridiculous. Like the telescope for which he is named, Mr. Palomar is a natural observer. “It is only after you have come to know the surface of things,” he believes, “that you can venture to seek what is underneath.” Whether contemplating a fine cheese, a hungry gecko, or a topless sunbather, he tends to let his meditations stray from the present moment to the great beyond. And though he may fail as an objective spectator, he is the best of company. “Each brief chapter reads like an exploded haiku,” wrote Time Out. A play on a world fragmented by our individual perceptions, this inventive and irresistible novel encapsulates the life’s work of an artist of the highest order, “the greatest Italian writer of the twentieth century” (The Guardian).

L Arte Di Ascoltare E Di Tacere

Racconta Plutarco che il tiranno Pittaco, dovendo inviare al re d’Egitto le carni migliori e le peggiori per il sacrificio, scelse di mandargli la lingua, «l’organo fonte dei beni, ma anche dei mali maggiori». Attraverso aneddoti esemplari, nei due brevi opuscoli tratti dai Moralia e qui raccolti, Plutarco smaschera la natura ambigua e pericolosa della parola, criticando la vuota retorica che furoreggiava nelle piazze del suo tempo e l’incapacità di porgere l’orecchio alle parole altrui e di ponderare le proprie. Quanto attuali siano i temi trattati sarà del resto subito chiaro al lettore, che si riconoscerà - suo malgrado - in queste pagine.

The Art Of Conversation

The Art of Conversation is a major contribution to the social history of language - a relatively new field which has become the focus of lively interdisciplinary debate in recent years. Drawing on the work of sociolinguists and others, Burke uses their concept while reserving the right to qualify their theories where the historical record makes this seem appropriate. Like the sociolinguists, Burke in concerned with the way language varies according to who is communicating to whom, on what occasion, in what medium and on what topic. Unlike many sociolinguists, Burke adds a historical dimension, treating language as an inseparable part of social history. This approach is outlined and justified in the first chapter and then exemplified in the remaining four, which deal with the early modern period. Among the topics discussed are the changing role of Latin, which is shown to be very much alive in the age of its alleged decline; language and identity in Italy, a politically divided region at the time but one where educated elites had a common language; the art of conversation, in other words the advice on speaking in polite company offered in hundreds of treaties of the period; and silence, viewed as an act of communication with a significance which changes over time and varies according to the setting and the persons who are silent. The Art of Conversation will be of great interest to students and scholars in social and cultural history, linguistics, the sociology of language and the ethnography of communication.
