Read full description of the books:



Iniziato il 6 ottobre 1935 durante i giorni del confino politico, Il mestiere di vivere accompagna Cesare Pavese fino al 18 agosto 1950, nove giorni prima della sua morte, e diventa a poco a poco il luogo cui affidare i pensieri sul proprio mondo di scrittore e di uomo e, soprattutto, le confessioni ultime su quei drammi intimi che laceravano la sua esistenza. Amaro, disperato, violento, ironico, raramente sereno, Pavese consegna al lettore una meditazione sulla vita, sui sogni, sui ricordi e sull'arte condotta con rigore intellettuale e morale; e allo stesso tempo, pagina dopo pagina, testimonia con lucidità l'evoluzione di un personale mestiere di vivere.
In appendice Frammenti della mia vita trascorsa, Pensieri cassati, "In sogno". Completano il volume un ampio apparato di note, la cronologia della vita e delle opere, la bibliografia ragionata e l'antologia della critica.

Read information about the author

Ebook Il mestiere di vivere: Diario 1935-1950 read Online! Pavese was born in a small town in which his father, an official, owned property. He attended school and later, university, in Turin. Denied an outlet for his creative powers by Fascist control of literature, Pavese translated many 20th-century U.S. writers in the 1930s and '40s: Sherwood Anderson, Gertrude Stein, John Steinbeck, John Dos Passos, Ernest Hemingway, and William Faulkner; a 19th-century writer who influenced him profoundly, Herman Melville (one of his first translations was of Moby Dick); and the Irish novelist James Joyce. He also published criticism, posthumously collected in La letteratura americana e altri saggi (1951; American Literature, Essays and Opinions, 1970). His work probably did more to foster the reading and appreciation of U.S. writers in Italy than that of any other single man.

A founder and, until his death, an editor of the publishing house of Einaudi, Pavese also edited the anti-Fascist review La Cultura. His work led to his arrest and imprisonment by the government in 1935, an experience later recalled in “Il carcere” (published in Prima che il gallo canti, 1949; in The Political Prisoner, 1955) and the novella Il compagno (1947; The Comrade, 1959). His first volume of lyric poetry, Lavorare stanca (1936; Hard Labour, 1976), followed his release from prison. An initial novella, Paesi tuoi (1941; The Harvesters, 1961), recalled, as many of his works do, the sacred places of childhood. Between 1943 and 1945 he lived with partisans of the anti-Fascist Resistance in the hills of Piedmont.

The bulk of Pavese's work, mostly short stories and novellas, appeared between the end of the war and his death. Partly through the influence of Melville, Pavese became preoccupied with myth, symbol, and archetype. One of his most striking books is Dialoghi con Leucò (1947; Dialogues with Leucò, 1965), poetically written conversations about the human condition. The novel considered his best, La luna e i falò (1950; The Moon and the Bonfires, 1950), is a bleak, yet compassionate story of a hero who tries to find himself by visiting the place in which he grew up. Several other works are notable, especially La bella estate (1949; in The Political Prisoner, 1955). Shortly after receiving the Strega Prize for it, Pavese committed suicide in his hotel room by taking an overdose of pills.
