Product Description

Una fantasia di Natale/The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain, A Fancy for Christmas-Time- Charles Dickens

Letteratura universale Marsilio - Elsinore - Italian Parallel Text

Edited by Marisa Sestito

Paperback, 288 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.

Redlaw is a teacher of chemistry who often broods over wrongs done him and grief from his past. He is haunted by a spirit, who is not so much a ghost as Redlaw's phantom twin and is "an awful likeness of himself...with his features, and his bright eyes, and his grizzled hair, and dressed in the gloomy shadow of his dress..." This spectre appears and proposes to Redlaw that he can allow him to "forget the sorrow, wrong, and trouble you have known...to cancel their remembrance..." Redlaw is hesitant at first, but finally agrees. However, before the spirit vanishes it imposes an additional consequence: "The gift that I have given you, you shall give again, go where you will."

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.

Secondo dei quattro «Christmas Books» dell'autore, questa «fantasia di Natale» ci offre tutti i caratteri della scrittura dickensiana: l'alternanza di comico e tragico, di momenti di cupa introspezione e di incontenibile allegria, delle figure dell'ombra e di quelle della luce; e l'infanzia, nelle sue componenti più inquietanti e in quelle più tenere. E vi ritroviamo naturalmente la magìa del Natale, con il suo messaggio augurale di dolcezza e benevolenza.
