It s a pure delight to read Ginzburg Not all the essays are equally compelling in Little Virtues , but those that are good, are very good They are very dense, not in a sense that they are difficult to read but almost every other line is something you d want to underline and remember There are excellent points about what it means being a writer, how to not raise your children and why England is the most melancholy country in the world, among others What bothered me a tiny bit was the impression that she justified her being thr Not all the essays are equally compelling in Little Virtues , but those that are good, are very good They are very dense, not in a sense that they are difficult to read but almost every other line is something you d want to underline and remember There are excellent points about what it means being a writer, how to not raise your children and why England is the most melancholy country in the world, among others What bothered me a tiny bit was the impression that she justified her being through her vocation This was a recurring theme in the book To have a vocation is something that makes you worthwhile, that makes life worthwhile and your children should definitely be set on one without your interference of course it should develop organically Well done if you have a calling but it is clear most people don t and I wish she had used her intelligent observations and insights to tell us what happens when you are just floating, without being here nor there how to find content then It would have been interesting to read her take on that i couldn t finish it too negetive i just went through first 20 pages Eleven short stories Some are fictionalised accounts of her life during WWII and later in England Some are onbroad topics She certainly did not like England, loved writing, seemed quite reluctant to use too many words and had various relationships The subtleties of the originality of the writing style is supposedly what makes this one an Italian classic. We have seen reality s darkest face, and it no longer horrifies us And there are still those who complain that writers use bitter, violent language, that they write about cruel, distressing things, that they present reality in the worst possible light Natalia Ginzburg, The Son of God I picked this one up and started reading because it was in the Italian lit section at the library and I m trying to readwomen writers It took me a while to realize that these were short essays and not sh We have seen reality s darkest face, and it no longer horrifies us And there are still those who complain that writers use bitter, violent language, that they write about cruel, distressing things, that they present reality in the worst possible light Natalia Ginzburg, The Son of God I picked this one up and started reading because it was in the Italian lit section at the library and I m trying to readwomen writers It took me a while to realize that these were short essays and not short stories like I d initially supposed Maybe it has something to do with her writing style I found it very accessible I liked her essays a lot She writes about her struggles as a mother and a writer, her time in exile, her travels, and personal challenges.She also wrote a very biting piece on England, which I think most English people will take umbrage at but was quite interesting to me regardless Eulogy and LamentWe are quickly infected by the English melancholy It is a sheepish, stunned melancholy, a sort of empty bewilderment, and on its surface the conversations about the weather, the seasons about all those things one discusses without going too deeply into anything, without giving offense or being offended linger like the constant buzzing of mosquitoesThere were also essays about raising kids during the war, what changes regarding parenting because of war and hardships In a way it reminded me of Zweig s reminiscences of Europe after the war We cannot do this to children who have seen terror and horror in our facesThere is an unabridgeable abyss between us and the previous generation The dangers they lived through were trivial and their houses were rarely reduced to rubble A couple of passages I likedMy vocation is to write stories invented things or things which I can remember from my own life, but in any case stories, things that are connected only with memory and imagination and have nothing to do with erudition This is my vocation and I shall work at it till I die As far as the things we write are concerned there is a danger in grief just as there is a danger in happiness Because poetic beauty is a mixture of ruthlessness, pride, irony, physical tenderness, of imagination and memory, of clarity and obscurity and if we cannot gather all these things together we are left with something meagre, unreliable and hardly alive The first two stories essays for somewhat reason failed to grip me at all, I read the words but my brain didn t connect with the content Colour me surprised when I found that after those, this collection got better and better and I really enjoyed myself the last piece after which this is named was my favourite and I recommend it to anyone.Also, what a beautiful book to behold and,so, hold the pages are so buttery soft, I stroked them on several occasions
