La coscienza di Zeno + downloadable audio - Italo Svevo
A2 | 112 Pages
A masterpiece of twentieth-century European literature that recounts the tragicomic story of a man, Zeno Cosini, who, following the advice of his psychoanalyst, retraces the moments of his life.
Zeno comes from a rich family in Trieste, lives in idleness and has a difficult relationship with his father. In love, in friendship, in work he always feels inadequate and this makes him believe he is suffering from a serious illness. In reality he will discover only with the passing of the years that he is not the one who is sick, but rather the society in which he lives.
