Merito di in line with sé considerevole, ma che appare quasi trascurabile non appena ci si rende conto che questo libro offre, più che una sequenza di sia pur illuminanti saggi critici, una vera e propria galleria di ritratti psichici – di Fenimore Cooper e Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne e Herman Melville –, animati da una voce inconfondibile, ora beffarda e insinuante, ora imperiosa e tonante. Ritratti che non cessano di provocarci, di sfidarci a un inesauribile incontro e scontro con Lawrence e con gli autori di cui parla.

Download e-book for kindle: Letture: George Steiner sul «New Yorker» (Italian Edition) by George Steiner,Fiorenza Conte

By George Steiner,Fiorenza Conte

Nell’arco di trent’anni, dal 1967 al 1997, George Steiner è stato tra i collaboratori più assidui del «New Yorker», una delle riviste più autorevoli e prestigiose, ineguagliabile consistent with l. a. cura e il livello dei suoi contributi. A un contesto di eccellenza, Steiner ha dato un’impronta inconfondibile, con una serie di saggi esemplari consistent with profondità e lucidità, in line with l. a. capacità di affrontare tematiche complesse con chiarezza, e spesso con grande forza di provocazione. I testi raccolti in Letture. George Steiner sul «New Yorker» offrono una lezione straordinaria. Attraverso l’esempio, e dunque nella maniera migliore, Steiner insegna come si legge un libro, come si affronta un autore, come si approfondisce un tema (o un enigma culturale), come si crea una connessione inedita che illumina il nostro sguardo sul mondo, come si va dritto al cuore di un problema. Le sue intuizioni sono sempre innescate da un’accurata lettura dei testi, dalla capacità di concentrarsi – al di là e contro ogni faciloneria postmoderna – sul senso di una frase, sul significato delle parole. I giudizi sono sorretti da una profonda cultura e dall’ampiezza degli orizzonti, oltre che da lucidità e autonomia intellettuale. advert animarlo, come ha riconosciuto Susan Sontag, è il suo impegno a favore della «serietà»: un impegno ravvivato dalla generosità del maestro e dal gusto della provocazione. Un ulteriore motivo di interesse è costituito dai saggi dedicati al nostro paese. Da un lato emergono los angeles conoscenza e l’amore in step with Dante, Michelangelo o Verdi (ma anche according to Salvatore Satta), dall’altro l’attenzione in step with l. a. nostra storia, dall’unità d’Italia al caso Moro.
