Long hailed as a seminal work of modernism in the tradition of Joyce and Kafka, and now available in a supple new English translation, Italo Svevo’s charming and splendidly idiosyncratic novel conducts readers deep into one hilariously hyperactive and endlessly self-deluding mind. The mind in question belongs to Zeno Cosini, a neurotic Italian businessman who is writing his confessions at the behest of his psychiatrist. Here are Zeno’s interminable attempts to quit smoking, his courtship of the beautiful yet unresponsive Ada, his unexpected–and unexpectedly happy–marriage to Ada’s homely sister Augusta, and his affair with a shrill-voiced aspiring singer. Relating these misadventures with wry wit and a perspicacity at once unblinking and compassionate, Zeno’s Conscience is a miracle of psychological realism.

'I am sure a cigarette has a more poignant flavour when it is the last' A neurotic Italian businessman obsessed by his own hypochondria, Zeno Cosini recounts his early years to his psychoanalyst Dr S as a form of therapy. With a cigarette clutched permanently between his fingers, he explores the important themes of his life: his love of smoking, his relationship with his parents, his marriage. Structured as a series of conversations with his psychoanalyst, Zeno was an innovation in its time, and remains a curious and intriguing delight. Michael Hoffman places Confessions of Zeno in its European context in his sparkling introduction.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Italienische u. Sardische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,3, Universitat Siegen (Romanische Literaturwissenschaft - franzosische und italienische Literatur ), Veranstaltung: Italo Svevo, Arthur Schnitzler im Dialog mit Sigmund Freud, 18 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: [...] Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, die Inszenierung der Figur des Zeno Cosini als schwachen Helden im Romanwerk nachzuweisen. Hierfur werden zunachst verschiedene Facetten der charakterlichen Schwache Zenos aufgezeigt. Diese Facetten werden mit der Methode der psychoanalytischen Literaturinterpretation naher auf ihre Ursprunge untersucht. Inwieweit diese Pradispositionen Zeno in der Interaktion mit seiner Umwelt beeinflussen, wird im dritten Kapitel behandelt. Hierbei werden drei verschiedene Komplementarfigurentypen in der Auseinandersetzung mit dem Antihelden betrachtet: Die begehrte, starke Frau, der uberlegene Rivale sowie der verhasste, starke Konkurrent. Schliesslich werden die Mechanismen zur Kompensation der Schwache analysiert, mit denen der schwache Held Zeno die eigene Minderwertigkeit zu verbergen und auszugleichen sucht und mit denen er sich gegen Angriffe aus der Aussenwelt schutzt. Abschliessend sollen die Ergebnisse resumiert werden und es ist zu diskutieren, inwieweit und in welcher Form es dem Antihelden gelingt, seine Schwache abzulegen."

This book makes visible the hidden relations between things and individuals through a discussion of creative processes and cultural practices. Italian life and culture are filled with objects that cross, accompany, facilitate or disrupt experience, desires, and dreams. Yet in spite of their ubiquity, theoretical engagement in the Italian context is still underdeveloped. Paolo Bartoloni investigates four typologies—the fictional, migrant, multicultural/transnational, and the artificial—to hypothesize that the ability to treat things as partners of emotional and creative expression creates a sense of identity predicated on inclusivity, openness, care, and attention.
