Charles Dickens - Selected Short Fiction
Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 0140431039 | 1976 | 432 pages | 1 MB / 1 MB

This witty and amusing collection of short pieces shows Dickens liberated from the more formal and sustained demands of the novel and experimenting with a diverse range of fictional techniques. In his tales of the supernatural, he creates frighteningly believable, spine-tingling stories of prophetic dreams and visions, as well as more fantastical adventures with goblins and apparitions. Impressionistic sketches combine imaginatively heightened travel journals with wry observations of home and abroad, while in his dramatic monologues, Dickens demonstrates his talent for exploring the secret workings of the human mind. These short works display Dickens's exuberant sense of comedy and character as his imagination is given free rein.

Incentrato sulla figura di Paul Dombey, ricco e arido commerciante incapace di qualsiasi sentimento, vittima dell'orgoglio e del desiderio di potere ed escluso dalla vita, dall'amore, dalla tenerezza e dalla paternità, il romanzo affronta il tema della punizione dell'orgoglio esemplificata nell'opulenza e nella caduta del protagonista, contro cui la sfortuna sembra accanirsi irrimediabilmente. Rimasto vedovo, egli concentra tutte le sue esperienze e tutto il suo amore sul figlio che però, debole e delicato, muore. In seguito a una serie di disavventure, Dombey, umiliato, vive in una disperata solitudine.

Charles Dickens - Racconti di Natale
Italian | Newton Compton | 2014 | ISBN: 8854171255 | 343 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Scritti tra il 1843 e il 1848, i "Racconti di Natale" costituiscono uno straordinario spettacolo narrativo metafisico e magico. Con le sue storie animate da fantasmi, folletti e fate, Dickens affida alla scrittura il compito di rappresentare la qualità mutevole e fluttuante del reale, dimostrando la labilità del confine tra vero e apparente, la difficoltà di definire ciò che gli occhi vedono, di comprendere ciò che le parole dicono. Come nei romanzi, anche qui l'autore svela l'altra faccia del mito del progresso, ritraendo l'Inghilterra della disoccupazione e del malessere sociale, Londra con le sue case fatiscenti e le sue strade degradate; la vita raffigurata non è però mai talmente cupa e disperata da non consentire spazi al sorriso o alla risata liberatoria, al comico e al grottesco.

Charles Dickens est un romancier de proximité : il se met dans la peau de chacun de ses lecteurs-personnages, partage tellement leur vie qu'il parle de lui en parlant d'eux. Il veut se reconnaître dans ses personnages comme il veut que les classes moyennes qu'il connaît et décrit se reconnaissent en eux. …
