Le piccole virtù

A medio camino entre el ensayo y la autobiografía Las peueñas virtudes reúne once textos de tema diverso ue comparten una escritura instintiva radical una mirada comprometida llana y conclusivamente humana La guerra. We have seen reality s darkest face and it no longer horrifies us And there are still those who complain that writers use bitter violent language that they write about cruel distressing things that they present reality in the worst possible light Natalia Ginzburg The Son of God I picked this one up and started reading because it was in the Italian lit section at the library and I m trying to read women writers It took me a while to realize that these were short essays and not short stories like I d initially supposed Maybe it has something to do with her writing style I found it very accessible I liked her essays a lot She writes about her struggles as a mother and a writer her time in exile her travels and personal challengesShe also wrote a very biting piece on England which I think most English people will take umbrage at but was uite interesting to me regardless Eulogy and Lament We are uickly infected by the English melancholy It is a sheepish stunned melancholy a sort of empty bewilderment and on its surface the conversations about the weather the seasons about all those things one discusses without going too deeply into anything without giving offense or being offended linger like the constant buzzing of mosuitoesThere were also essays about raising kids during the war what changes regarding parenting because of war and hardships In a way it reminded me of Zweig s reminiscences of Europe after the warWe cannot do this to children who have seen terror and horror in our facesThere is an unabridgeable abyss between us and the previous generation The dangers they lived through were trivial and their houses were rarely reduced to rubble A couple of passages I liked My vocation is to write stories invented things or things which I can remember from my own life but in any case stories things that are connected only with memory and imagination and have nothing to do with erudition This is my vocation and I shall work at it till I die As far as the things we write are concerned there is a danger in grief just as there is a danger in happiness Because poetic beauty is a mixture of ruthlessness pride irony physical tenderness of imagination and memory of clarity and obscurity and if we cannot gather all these things together we are left with something meagre unreliable and hardly alive

    This collection was genius So exuisite a delight when you come across a writer who thinks for themselves She describes herself as a tiny flea of a writer but her minute observations on life fill up the heart The last essay on parenting is irreverent but so wise; I underlined every line and am learning from it

    Not all the essays are eually compelling in Little Virtues but those that are good are very good They are very dense not in a sense that they are difficult to read but almost every other line is something you'd want to underline and remember There are excellent points about what it means being a writer how to not raise

    The first essay Winter in Abruzzo is brilliant and poignant She begins in everyday joys and irritations Then her tragic loss shifts the perspective deepening the precarious value of the everyday The essay on Pavese was both unsentimental and moving Some of the other essays left me baffled I gave up on the essays on England before I could learn whether that relentlessly and unkindly classifying of England was meant to fu
