Email this page Cesare Pavese is widely regarded as one of the foremost men of letters in twentieth-century Italian cultural history, and in particular as an emblematic figure: an earnest writer maimed by fascism and struggling with the modern existentialist dilemma of alienated meaning. Little known in the United States, Pavese was profoundly influenced by American literature, and, when official censorship closed his mouth, he would use his position as a translator and editor indirectly to bring into Italy messages of freedom and new ideas from English-language authors. Eugenio Pavese was a functionary in the law courts of Turin, in the north of Italy, and died of a brain tumor when Cesare was only six years old. One of his few friends, Natalia Ginzburg, in a posthumous memoir published in London magazine, remembered him: "It seemed to us that his sadness was that of a boy, the voluptuous heedless melancholy of a boy who has still not come down to earth, and moves in the arid, solitary world of dreams. At the time, Turin was considered by many to be more a French than an Italian city, and, a generation before, German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche had made it his home for several years prior to his mental collapse in After graduating, Pavese enrolled at the University of Turin and continued to pursue his study of literature, especially American literature, which, he became increasingly certain, offered a viable alternative to European cultural alienation and outright disintegration.

Tutti questi sono i temi della narrazione poetica. Pavese stabilisce, attraverso una sineddotica traccia, nel titolo, una chiave di lettura per la storia che racconta, sottoforma prosastica, nei versi di questa poesia. Ma azione tesa alla produzione, alla soddisfazione nel mettere in campo le proprie forze per vedere al fine realizzate le aspettative. Generalmente la lirica non convoglia i suoi sforzi per narrare una storia, ma si concentra sul circolo psicologico sul quale agiscono tutta una serie di fatti che sono dati come risaputi o che sono appena accennati dal poeta.
Ciononostante tutto il fatto apparirebbe quasi insignificante se non fosse visto sotto lo sguardo di qualcuno che volutamente simpatizza per i due protagonisti-antagonisti della vicenda. I due sono la coppia. I due sono insieme i protagonisti contrapposti della storia. Perfino le ripetizioni appaiono ricche di una variazione semantica a seconda di dove avvengono.

It was the village where his father was born and where the family returned for the summer holidays each year. He started infant classes in Santo Stefano Belbo, but the rest of his education was in schools in Turin. As a young man of letters, Pavese had a particular interest in English-language literature, graduating from the University of Turin with a thesis on the poetry of Walt Whitman. Among his mentors at the university was Leone Ginzburg , expert on Russian literature and literary critic, husband of the writer Natalia Ginzburg and father of the future historian Carlo Ginzburg.
