Orwell, George

La neolingua della politica / George Orwell ; a cura di Massimo Birattari ; traduzione di Massimo Birattari, Bianca Bernardi

Milano : Garzanti, 2021

I piccoli grandi libri

Résumé: A cura di Massimo Birattari pubblico non è mai stato così vuoto e aggressivo. Per questo è il momento di scoprire le riflessioni di Orwell raccolte in "La politica e la lingua inglese" (1946), uno scritto ormai classico che pare anticipare le considerazioni svolte venti anni dopo da Calvino sull'«antilingua» che corrompe l'italiano, e che nel suo «catalogo di frodi e travisamenti» prefigura la deriva dei social network. Per Orwell dallo stravolgimento delle parole alla manipolazione il passo è breve, come dimostra l'altro testo qui incluso: I principi della neolingua nasce come appendice del capolavoro 1984 ed enuncia, come scrive Massimo Birattari nella prefazione, le regole di una lingua «concentrazionaria, soffocante, terroristica». A più di settant'anni di distanza, da queste pagine limpide e feroci risuona ancora un monito che è rischioso ignorare: «la lingua diventa brutta e imprecisa perché i nostri pensieri sono stupidi, ma a sua volta la sciatteria della lingua ci rende più facili i pensieri stupidi».

Glück, Louise

Ararat / Louise Glück ; traduzione di Bianca Tarozzi

Milano : Il saggiatore, 2021

La cultura ; 1450

Résumé: Camminiamo in un cimitero: i fiori incoronano una lapide, la tomba di una persona cara. Ci muoviamo sull'erba schiacciata dai piedi dei tanti che, come noi, procedono disorientati tra le tombe. Ripensiamo a ciò che è stato e, all'ombra di un faggio rosso, udiamo ancora una volta le nostre risate e i nostri pianti di bambini, la ninnananna sommessa di una madre che culla un figlio, il canto di un uccello che trafigge il silenzio di un padre, il nostro. "Ararat" è un commovente ritratto di famiglia, turbato, sullo sfondo, dalla presenza gelida della morte. Il lutto, dice Louise Glück, è una ferita aperta, pulsa, brucia; ma aspetta: il tempo trascolora, le ore sfioriscono. I giorni diventano mesi, i mesi anni: allora riviviamo l'ultimo saluto, il tremore di una mano, i sorrisi che non nascondono le lacrime, e capiamo che la sofferenza è compagna inevitabile della compassione, dell'amore. E nella dolcezza del dolore diventiamo inequivocabilmente umani.

Fait partie de: Riordan, Rick. The trials of Apollo / Rick Riordan

Résumé: It's not easy being Apollo, especially when you've been turned into a human and banished from Olympus. On his path to restoring five ancient oracles and reclaiming his godly powers, Apollo (aka Lester Papadopoulos) has faced both triumphs and tragedies. Now his journey takes him to Camp Jupiter in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the Roman demigods are preparing for a desperate last stand against the evil Triumvirate of Roman emperors. Hazel, Reyna, Frank, Tyson, Ella, and many other old friends will need Apollo's aid to survive the onslaught. Unfortunately, the answer to their salvation lies in the forgotten tomb of a Roman ruler . . . someone even worse than the emperors Apollo has already faced.

Résumé: A tender tale to remind the youngest of children that Mommy always comes back. "I want my mommy!" Three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, and they can&;t help but wonder where she is. What is she doing? When will she be back? What scary things move all around them? Stunning illustrations from striking perspectives capture the anxious little owls as they worry. Not surprisingly, joyous flapping and dancing and bouncing greet the mother&;s return, lending a celebratory tone to the ending of this comforting tale. Never has the plight of young ones who miss their mother been so simply told or so beautifully rendered - Tutti i gufi penano molto, anche quelli piccoli come Sara, Bruno e Tobia. Specialmente di notte, nel bosco, mentre aspettano che Mamma Gufa torni al nido, dopo la caccia. All'inizio si sentono coraggiosi, ma man mano che il tempo passa cominciano ad avere paura. E se la mamma non tornasse più? Una storia che permette ai piccoli lettori di superare la paura dell'abbandono, di rivivere la solidarietà fra frateli, i piccoli atti di autonomia e la felicità del ricongiungimento con i genitori.

The first casualty / Ben Elton

London : Black swan, 2006

Résumé: Flanders, June 1917: a British officer and celebrated poet, is shot dead, killed not by German fire, but while recuperating from shell shock well behind the lines. A young English soldier is arrested and, although he protests his innocence, charged with his murder. Douglas Kingsley is a conscientious objector, previously a detective with the London police, now imprisoned for his beliefs. He is released and sent to France in order to secure a conviction. Forced to conduct his investigations amidst the hell of The Third Battle of Ypres, Kingsley soon discovers that both the evidence and the witnesses he needs are quite literally disappearing into the mud that surrounds him. Ben Elton's tenth novel is a gut-wrenching historical drama which explores some fundamental questions. What is murder? What is justice in the face of unimaginable daily slaughter? And where is the honour in saving a man from the gallows if he is only to be returned to die in a suicidal battle? As the gap between legally-sanctioned and illegal murder becomes evermore blurred, Kingsley quickly learns that the first casualty when war comes is truth.

The black angel / John Connolly

London : Hodder, 2005

Résumé: The Black Angel is not an object. The Black Angel is not a myth. The Black Angel lives. A young woman goes missing from the streets of New York. Those who have taken her believe that nobody cares about her, and that no one will come looking for her. They are wrong. She is 'blood' to the killer Louis, the man who stands at the right hand of private detective Charlie Parker, and Louis will tear apart anyone who stands in the way of his attempts to find her. But as Louis's violent search progresses, Parker comes to realize that the disappearance is part of an older mystery, one that is linked to an ornate church of bones in Eastern Europe, to the slaughter at a French monastery in 1944, and to the quest for a mythical prize that has been sought for centuries by evil men: the Black Angel. Yet the Black Angel is more than a myth. It is conscious. It dreams. It is alive. And men are not the only creatures that seek it ...
