Download e-book for iPad: Il libro di sabbia (Biblioteca Adelphi) (Italian Edition) by Jorge Luis Borges,T. Scarano,I. Carmignani

| December 7, 2017 | admin | 0

By Jorge Luis Borges,T. Scarano,I. Carmignani

Nel febbraio del 1969, a Cambridge, su una panchina davanti al fiume Charles, Borges incontra un uomo che ha los angeles sua stessa voce e gli è più intimo di un figlio nato dalla sua carne. L’uomo è Borges ventenne, a Ginevra, seduto su una panchina davanti al fiume Rodano. Comincia così, con un vertiginoso ritorno al «vecchio tema del doppio» e alle atmosfere lucidamente visionarie degli scritti degli anni Quaranta, "Il libro di sabbia", che raccoglie tredici, memorabili, racconti – cui se ne aggiungono qui, in appendice, altri quattro mai radunati in quantity. Racconti di carattere fantastico. O forse sogni. O forse incontri con apparizioni spettrali: Ulrica, alta e lieve, labile riflesso di una saga nordica; una casa inconcepibile e il suo terrificante ospite; un vecchio, pallido e severo, venuto da un futuro dove si insegna l’arte di dimenticare. Ma anche incontri con oggetti da incubo, da cui paiono sprigionarsi il caos o l. a. divinità: il disco di Odino, a un solo lato e invisibile, che un taglialegna strappa al re dei Secgens e poi cercherà invano; il diabolico libro di sabbia, che non ha né inizio né nice né centro né ordine, e infama e corrompe l. a. realtà; le «tigri blu», pietruzze lisce e rotonde capaci di riprodursi e di minare l. a. scienza della matematica. Incontri, tutti, destinati a «ramificarsi nell’ospitale immaginazione» di chi li legge, quasi fossero scaturiti, miracolosamente, dai suoi stessi sogni. «In questi esercizi da cieco» scrive Borges «ho voluto essere fedele all’esempio di Wells: los angeles congiunzione di uno stile piano, a volte quasi orale, con una trama impossibile» – e il risultato è una prosa pacata ed essenziale, ma come non mai modulata e musicale.
