By Charles Baudelaire,Thomas Clerc

L’anecdote suivante m’a été contée avec prières de n’en parler à personne ; c’est pour cela que je veux los angeles raconter à tout le monde.
Baudelaire
« Lorsque j’étais enfant, mon père, homme d’affaires qui avait pour écrivains favoris Balzac et Baudelaire, me récitait souvent des vers de ce dernier ; il me disait aussi : “Les capitalistes sont les bienfaiteurs de l’humanité.” Quand il se ruina, en 1972, j’avais sept ans. Il est demeuré fidèle à Baudelaire et au capitalisme toute sa vie ; j’ai pour ma half plus d’estime pour l’un que pour l’autre. C’est que Baudelaire est une valeur sûre. »

Download e-book for kindle: La grande famiglia: Romanzo di dodici autori (Letteratura by Henry James,William Dean Howells,Mary Eleanor Wilkins

By Henry James,William Dean Howells,Mary Eleanor Wilkins Freeman,Mary Heaton Vorse,M. Stewart Cutting,E. Jordan,John Kendrick Bangs,Elizabeth Stuart Phelps,E. Wyatt,Mary Raymond Shipman Andrews,A. Brown,Henry Van Dyke,Giovanna Mochi

Dal dicembre 1907 al novembre 1908, presso los angeles nota rivista femminile americana Harper’s Bazar esce, in dodici puntate-capitoli, il romanzo the full relatives (La grande famiglia), storia-ritratto di una numerosa famiglia della piccola borghesia americana del primo Novecento alle prese con un evento - il fidanzamento di una figlia - che, osservato e commentato dai diversi componenti della famiglia stessa, ne mette in discussione modelli e aspettative, ruoli e consuetudini, grandi e piccole certezze. Un bozzetto di «realismo sociale» che certo non varrebbe los angeles pena di rispolverare, se non fosse in step with il sorprendente progetto editoriale che vi sta dietro: i dodici capitoli infatti sono scritti da dodici autori diversi, ciascuno dei quali interpreta e dà voce a uno dei familiari, mettendo in scena, in una sorta di social community narrativo che vira continuamente in direzioni impreviste, un vivacissimo dialogo le cui voci si intrecciano, si sovrastano e si sconfessano l’un l’altra, riuscendo comunque a raccontare, alla superb, una storia che "tiene", diverte, sorprende.
Così come sorprende los angeles squadra, eterogenea e pittoresca, abilmente reclutata da una entusiasta infaticabile editor: due "veri" e riconosciuti scrittori (l’autorevole W.D. Howells e nientemeno che il Grande Maestro Henry James), otto donne scrittrici coinvolte a vari livelli in tematiche femminili e femministe, un umorista, e un paludato accademico. È questa los angeles “grande famiglia” editoriale, non meno conflittuale e litigiosa della famiglia Talbert, di cui rispecchia, con effetti metanarrativi talvolta esilaranti, tensioni, rivalità e dissapori.

Come nel gioco mutevole del caleidoscopio, o in quello childish del telefono senza fili, l. a. trama di questo bizzarro «romanzo composito» - in line with los angeles prima volta tradotto in italiano - si snoda in imprevisti colpi di scena, rocamboleschi stravolgimenti e deviazioni spiazzanti, mediante le quali il narratore di turno tende a imporre alla storia, e ai suoi colleghi, l. a. propria strategia.
È così che l. a. rappresentazione pur problematica di un modello di vita americano in trasformazione, democratico produttivo e laborioso quale period l’idea di partenza di Howells, si declina secondo i punti di vista di autori e personaggi, sconfinando ora nella esaltazione delle conquiste femminili di primo Novecento, ora nella riflessione profonda sul ruolo dell’artista nella società. Un affascinante capitolo di microstoria americana si costruisce e decostruisce davanti ai nostri occhi, in quello che può essere considerato uno dei primi e riusciti esperimenti di scrittura collettiva. E anche l. a. traduzione, affidata a dodici voci assorted, partecipa con passione alla sfida proposta da questo sorprendente gioco di ruolo.
