The Speckled People by Hugo Hamilton
English | April 11th, 2013 | ISBN: 0007149980, 0007156634 | 314 pages | EPUB | 0.31 MB

The childhood world of Hugo Hamilton, born and brought up in Dublin, is a confused place. His father, a sometimes brutal Irish nationalist, demands his children speak Gaelic, while his mother, a softly spoken German emigrant who has been marked by the Nazi past, speaks to them in German. He himself wants to speak English. English is, after all, what the other children in Dublin speak. English is what they use when they hunt him down in the streets and dub him Eichmann, as they bring him to trial and sentence him to death at a mock seaside court.

Walter Benjamin - Scritti autobiografici
Italiano | 2019 | 543 pages | ISBN: 8854511722 | EPUB | 1,3 MB

"Forse in nessun autore del Novecento il rapporto fra l'opera e la vita, il «vissuto» e il «poetato» è così stretto e, insieme, inafferrabile come in Walter Benjamin. La raccolta esaustiva di tutti i suoi testi di carattere autobiografico che questo libro propone (dai curricula vitae ai diari, dagli appunti di viaggio ai testi narrativi come Cronaca berlinese) è, per questo, tanto più indispensabile quanto più sembra lasciarci inappagati, quasi che il velo che l'autore ha inteso stendere sulla sua biografia s'infittisse nella misura esatta in cui egli prova a raccontarcela nei suoi più minuti particolari. Nel prologo a Infanzia berlinese, Benjamin ci informa che, richiamando alla memoria i suoi ricordi infantili, ha voluto servirsene come una vaccinazione contro la nostalgia. I tratti biografici si ritirano così nell'ombra e lasciano il posto alle «immagini in cui l'esperienza della grande città si sedimenta in un bambino della classe media».
