Poesie per Emma/Poems about Emma - Thomas Hardy

Letteratura universale Marsilio - Elsinore - Italian Parallel Text

Edited by Gilberto Sacerdoti

Paperback, 208 pages

Each volume in this series presents a classic of English literature with a new Italian translation on the facing page, as well as an extensive introduction, information about the text and the author, in-depth annotations, and a complete bibliography, all in Italian.

In these poems Hardy explores the guilt he feels for his neglect of Emma, his first wife, over the latter years of their marriage. He uses his writing to absolve himself of this guilt and come to terms with it.

Ciascun volume di questa collana si presenta come una monografia completa composta da un saggio introduttivo, una nuova traduzione con testo a fronte, note informative sull'autore e sull'opera, un commento essenziale, una ricca bibliografia.

Emma Lavinia Gifford e Thomas Hardy: un incontro folgorante, un grande amore e poi un matrimonio lungo e infelice, che si logora lentamente in un grumo velenoso di incomprensioni e rancori. Ma quando Emma nel 1912 improvvisamente muore ha luogo un mutamento prodigioso, e Hardy viene travolto da un fiotto poderoso di ispirazione poetica, in cui il suo grande romantico amore giovanile diviene l'unica viva realtà. Scrive più di cento poesie tormentate e struggenti, cariche di rimorso e rimpianto per ciò che aveva perso, ma piene di luce e di emozioni che il vecchio poeta va ricercando e ritrovando. E soprattutto, poesie tra le più perfette della sua produzione: apparentemente semplici, nella grandissima varietà di forme metriche e strofiche, creano ritmi organici in cui la lingua e l'esperienza quotidiana si bilanciano con il termine prezioso e l'immagine letteraria. Con queste poesie, ha scritto Brodskij, il vecchio Hardy «ridefinisce il genere dell'elegia funebre e insieme quello della poesia d'amore». E per Montale esse sono «una delle vette della poesia moderna, e non di quella poesia vittoriana alla quale si sarebbe tentati di ascrivere un poeta già operante nel 1870».

Personaggi di vecchio stampo/A Few Crusted Characters - Thomas Hardy

Thomas Hardy was born on June 2, 1840, in Higher Bockhampton, England. The eldest child of Thomas and Jemima, Hardy studied Latin, French, and architecture in school. He also became an avid reader. Upon graduation, Hardy traveled to London to work as an architect's assistant under the guidance of Arthur Bloomfield. He also began writing poetry. How I Built Myself a House, Hardy's first professional article, was published in 1865. Two years later, while still working in the architecture field, Hardy wrote the unpublished novel The Poor Man and the Lady. During the next five years, Hardy penned Desperate Remedies, Under the Greenwood Tree, and A Pair of Blue Eyes. In 1873, Hardy decided it was time to relinquish his architecture career and concentrate on writing full-time. In September 1874, his first book as a full-time author, Far from the Madding Crowd, appeared serially. After publishing more than two dozen novels, one of the last being Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Hardy returned to writing poetry--his first love. Hardy's volumes of poetry include Poems of the Past and Present, The Dynasts: Part One, Two, and Three, Time's Laughingstocks, and The Famous Tragedy of the Queen of Cornwall. From 1833 until his death, Hardy lived in Dorchester, England. His house, Max Gate, was designed by Hardy, who also supervised its construction. Hardy died on January 11, 1928. His ashes are buried in Poet's Corner at Westminster Abbey.
