L' airone bianco ; Un corteggiamento invernale / S. O. Jewett ; traduzione di Elisabetta Querci

Roma : Gruppo editoriale l'Espresso, 2010

Short stories ; 11

Abstract: "L’airone bianco", primo racconto qui presentato, compare nell’omonima raccolta del 1886, ed è estremamente rappresentativo dell’universo di riferimento dell’autrice. Sylvia, una bambina di città, è ospite per un lungo periodo della nonna, che vive in una piccola fattoria situata nel cuore di una meravigliosa foresta. Una sera incontra sulla strada di casa un giovane forestiero che si rivela essere un ornitologo che studia sì gli uccelli, ma non disdegna di ucciderli, per conservare imbalsamati gli esemplari delle specie più rare: l’airone bianco è appunto la più ambita delle sue prede. In "Un corteggiamento invernale" c’è poca natura, giusto quella che costeggia la strada percorsa ogni giorno da Jefferson Briley, anziano vedovo che svolge, con la sua carrozza tirata da una giumenta altrettanto anziana, il servizio postale fra due paesini del Maine, trasportando occasionalmente anche passeggeri. Un giorno sale a bordo la signora Fanny Tobin e nelle sette miglia del viaggio, reso molto lento dall’età avanzata della giumenta, accadrà qualcosa che cambierà per sempre il resto delle loro esistenze.

Salinger, Jerome David

Franny and Zooey / J.D. Salinger

Boston [etc.] : Little, Brown and Company, 1991

Abstract: The author writes: Franny came out in The New Yorker/EM Zooey. Both stories are early, critical entries in a narrative series I'm doing about a family of settlers in twentieth-century New York, the Glasses. It is a long-term project, patently an ambitious one, and there is a real-enough danger, I suppose, that sooner or later I'll bog down, perhaps disappear entirely, in my own methods, locutions, and mannerisms. On the whole, though, I'm very hopeful. I love working on these Glass stories, I've been waiting for them most of my life, and I think I have fairly decent, monomaniacal plans to finish them with due care and all-available skill.

Salinger, Jerome David

Raise high the roof beam, carpenters ; and Seymour an introduction / J.D. Salinger

Boston [etc.] : Little, Brown and company, 1991

Abstract: Two long short stories about Salinger's Glass family, previously published in The New Yorker. Both stories are about the life and tragic death of Seymour Glass, the eldest of the Glass children, and his siblings' reaction to it. The events are seen through the eyes of Seymour's brother Buddy, who is often said to be a portrait of Salinger himself. His rambling narrative is revealing of himself as well as of his brother, and explores the quest for enlightenment and wisdom that preoccupies both of them.
