Read full description of the books Casa de pe colină:

Cesare Pavese nu este doar unul dintre scriitorii esentiali ai canonului literaturii italiene de dupa razboi, ci un nume indispensabil din palmaresul cultural, al occidentului. El s-a nascut in 1908 intr-o familie instarita din San Stefano Belbo (Cueno), o localitate de langa Torino si a ramas fara tata de la o varsta frageda. Anii de formare si i-a petrecut intr-un colegiu iezuit cu un regim pe cat de auster pe atat de abuziv si apoi la gimnaziul modern. Frecventarea cercurilor antifasciste in perioada in care Il Duce alinia Italia ofensivei hitleriste ii aduce lui Cesare Pavese condamnarea la cateva luni de arest si in 1955 i se impune domiciliu fortat timp de 3 ani in sudul Italiei. In anul 1947 devenea membru al Partidului Comunist Italian, iar in 1950, dupa ce a obtinut premiul Strega pentru romanul "Luna si focurile", s-a sinucis intr-o camera de hotel din Torino. Opera lui Pavese este fundamentata pe un conglomerat de lecturi si modele culturale cat se poate de eterogene. Mostenirea decadentismului italian pe care isi pusese decisiv amprenta stilul lui Danutio a fost imbogatita cu lectia clasicismului si desavarsita prin atractia pentru realismul unor scriitor ca Herman Melville, Mark Twain, William Saroyan si John Steinbeck. "Casa de pe colina", publicata in 1948, este o meditatie asupra vinei de a dezerta din campul de actiune pentru refugiul in lumea ideilor. Corado, un tanar profesor din Torino, refuza solidaritatea activa cu prietenii sai antifascisti, dar nu se poate impaca nici cu optiunea neimplicarii. Pavese reia aici dilema unui spirit lucid, consumat de imposibilitatea de a gasi un scop ultim care sa-i justifice existenta.

Read information about the author

Ebook Casa de pe colină read Online! Pavese was born in a small town in which his father, an official, owned property. He attended school and later, university, in Turin. Denied an outlet for his creative powers by Fascist control of literature, Pavese translated many 20th-century U.S. writers in the 1930s and '40s: Sherwood Anderson, Gertrude Stein, John Steinbeck, John Dos Passos, Ernest Hemingway, and William Faulkner; a 19th-century writer who influenced him profoundly, Herman Melville (one of his first translations was of Moby Dick); and the Irish novelist James Joyce. He also published criticism, posthumously collected in La letteratura americana e altri saggi (1951; American Literature, Essays and Opinions, 1970). His work probably did more to foster the reading and appreciation of U.S. writers in Italy than that of any other single man.

A founder and, until his death, an editor of the publishing house of Einaudi, Pavese also edited the anti-Fascist review La Cultura. His work led to his arrest and imprisonment by the government in 1935, an experience later recalled in “Il carcere” (published in Prima che il gallo canti, 1949; in The Political Prisoner, 1955) and the novella Il compagno (1947; The Comrade, 1959). His first volume of lyric poetry, Lavorare stanca (1936; Hard Labour, 1976), followed his release from prison. An initial novella, Paesi tuoi (1941; The Harvesters, 1961), recalled, as many of his works do, the sacred places of childhood. Between 1943 and 1945 he lived with partisans of the anti-Fascist Resistance in the hills of Piedmont.

The bulk of Pavese's work, mostly short stories and novellas, appeared between the end of the war and his death. Partly through the influence of Melville, Pavese became preoccupied with myth, symbol, and archetype. One of his most striking books is Dialoghi con Leucò (1947; Dialogues with Leucò, 1965), poetically written conversations about the human condition. The novel considered his best, La luna e i falò (1950; The Moon and the Bonfires, 1950), is a bleak, yet compassionate story of a hero who tries to find himself by visiting the place in which he grew up. Several other works are notable, especially La bella estate (1949; in The Political Prisoner, 1955). Shortly after receiving the Strega Prize for it, Pavese committed suicide in his hotel room by taking an overdose of pills.
