Bien que malmené à son travel, le valeureux Monnier parvient à organiser l’arrivée de Céline chez Gallimard, qui acceptera toutes ses stipulations. Une fois le non-lieu prononcé (1951), l’écrivain maudit revient discrètement en France : l. a. saison au purgatoire est loin d’être terminée.

    Ce douzième quantity de l. a. "Série Céline" corrige, approfondit par des notes et complète par des inédits les 313 lettres (ici 325) que Pierre Monnier avait divulguées dans son récit Ferdinand furieux (L’Âge d’homme, 1979).

  • Download Da un'altra Italia: 63 lettere, diari, testimonianze sul by Jesse Bering PDF

    By Jesse Bering

    «Esiste un’altra Italia, è sempre esistita. Nostra intenzione non è riproporla con analisi sociologiche o antropologiche, che spettano advert altri, ma semplicemente dare voce, attraverso documenti in prevalenza privati, a un “carattere” italiano poco rappresentato, mentre dilagano i ritratti, spesso grotteschi, dei difetti nazionali: l. a. cialtroneria, los angeles tendenza advert accodarsi al vincitore, lo scarso senso dello stato e della collettività, l’individualismo sregolato, il familismo, il cinismo gaudente, il lamento perenne. Un “carattere” che non solo nel passato, glorioso e irripetibile, ma anche nel presente rivela una diversa tempra morale, una serietà e una tenacia che non di rado si trasforma in abnegazione, nel lavoro, negli affetti, nell’impegno politico, nei gravi momenti dell’emergenza ma anche della quotidianità. Non abbiamo certo voluto riscrivere l. a. storia d’Italia, né raccogliere testimonianze esaustive: a questo lavoro ci ha spinto il desiderio di opporci alla diffusa rassegnazione, o peggio, e insieme l. a. convinzione che in questi tempi di babele delle lingue, e non solo quelle della politica, sia ancora possibile fare affidamento sulla tenuta di un popolo migliore di quello che crede (o vogliono fargli credere) di essere.»
