One thought on “كازانوفا في بولزانو”

  1. This is a historical fantasy. Other than that Casanova escapes from prison, all the rest is fantasy. So he escapes after a year and a half and he heads back to a town where a beautiful young woman lives that he never conquered. The beautiful girl was 14 when he first met her; she’s 20 now; Casanova is 40; her husband, the Duke, is 72. Casanova tells people his vocation is that of “writer,” as in writing letters to people for money on credit, it turns out. He has a “sponsor” in Italy wh [...]

  2. You can't beat a good old duel, and 99 times out of 100 it's over a woman, in this case the lavish Francesca, who has two admires, the playboy adventurer Giacomo Casanova (womanizer, celebrity, swordsman, swindler, cadger of ducats, mystical quack, gambler and writer) whom she loves and The Duke of Parma (boring but wealthy). It is midnight in Bolzano, and the moon will soon witness blood, the two bare chested men stand off ready to do battle for the girl. The Duke is victorious (boo!), Francesc [...]

  3. Giacomo il seduttore, Giacomo il mito, Giacomo il sogno. Giacomo “l’uomo”. Perché è questa la definizione che usa la bella Lucia, dopo aver spiato dal buco della serratura. Guarda, arrossisce, sobbalza, soffoca un grido e fa il segno della croce. Le altre donne le si fanno attorno, chiedono a fior di labbra “Cosa hai visto?”. Lei risponde, turbata: “Un uomo”. Dopo di che, una a una, si chinano, sbirciano dentro la stanza, provando una gioia indicibile.Giacomo è fuggito dai Piomb [...]

  6. I chose Casanova in Bolzano simply because I had heard great things about the author, Sándor Márai, and this was the only one of the author’s books I could get as an audiobook. To top it off, the narrator is the well-known Simon Prebble, so what could I lose? Let me say right off that the narration was good, even if I could not hear from the intonation which character was speaking. There are never-ending monologues. I have warned you. What is a bit strange is that there are extremely few con [...]

  7. Two years ago I was hunting a complete Memoirs of Casanova while in a Powell’s in Chicago. I asked the associate if there were any in stock. He pointed me to a Classics section where a Penguin single volume abridgement sat, lacking any immediate street cred. I asked if there weren’t any complete sets elsewhere in the store. You don’t need the set, the man snapped, all the good stuff is in there. I was likewise looking for good stuff as I finished this novel this evening. My verdict: not so [...]

  8. At first I found it difficult to get into this novel. The steam of conscious style of the narrative made it somewhat hard to follow at the start, but soon I adapted to the rhythm of the book and after that I truly loved it and appreciated the beauty of the writing. I found it to be an engaging story full of depth, meaning and truth. I do not know a great deal about Casanova beyond his notorious reputation as the great womanizer and seducer, but Marai provides a much more human portrayal of Casan [...]

  9. “Sai che nella realtà non esiste il “tutto o niente”, esiste soltanto una via di mezzo fra il “tutto” e il “niente”, il “qualcosa”, che però a volte può significare moltissimo.”Marai è bravissimo a rappresentare personaggi. Li presenta in un modo e poi lentamente li analizza profondamente fino a mostrarci ogni risvolto psicologico, ogni sfumatura.Questa analisi normalmente avviene tramite lunghi monologhi, che sono poi il cuore dei suoi romanzi. Anche “La recita di Bolz [...]

  10. "Casanova in Bolzano" lacks the economy of language that I really admire in Marai's other works. There were sections where I just wanted to say, "COME ON. We got it." Long monologues by old men, caught up in arguments about love, sex, seduction, loss, death Let's move on. How 'bout a smidge more character development or plot? I want to be invested in characters when I have to listen to a really long monologue. Particularly when that monologue really doesn't say much about the character. Someone [...]

  11. An extraordinary study of the multi-faceted nature of love, desire, possession, humiliation, just about everything that can unite, or not, two people. I loved it, and preferred it to Embers, which I also liked very much but found its teasingly delayed denouements slightly ponderous

  12. إنه عبقري!، بالتأكيد أقصد بذلك الأصابع المترفة وبودرة الأرز، ولمسات الحلاق جيسيبي والقمصان ذات الكشكشة والمعطف الأرجواني ، والخنجر، والسيف الذهبي، والجوارب البيضاء الطويلة، والقناع الحريري!، وبالتأكيد القناع!، القناع!، وهذه اللغة المنمقة، وهذا التنبيه الذي ساقه المؤلف ق [...]

  13. I've been reading some debate recently about disappointing endings and whether a satisfying end to a story is critical to your enjoyment as reader, and the author's success as writer. This book is, for me, an example of how a wonderful conclusion can transform a piece from average to great. For a book in which not a lot goes on and one principle character delivers endless pages of internal monologue, it's absolutely remarkable that it holds the reader's attention. We spend two weeks with Casanov [...]

  14. I thought this author's "Embers" was great novel. And "Casanova in Bolzano" is similar in plot: there are three characters involved in a romantic triangle. But that's where the similarities stop. Where "Embers" was tightly and beautifully written without a word wasted, "Casanova" feels at least twice too long. Perhaps if I had read "Casanova" first, it would have been a different experience. Anyway, I strongly recommend the stunning "Embers" in which Marai's gorgeous writing glows.

  16. Di Marai avevo letto "le Braci" e me ne ero innamorato. Questo romanzo non regge assolutamente il confronto. Peccato!

  17. - Il triangolo: Giacomo Casanova, il Conte di Parma e Francesca.- La recita: Giacomo nei panni di Francesca, Francesca in quelli di Giacomo, il Conte è il regista.- La risata finale è di colui che è sempre stato dietro il palco, quello che ride bene perché ride ultimo: ecco ciò che mi ripaga di tutti gli "amore mio" che ho dovuto sorbirmi nelle ultime pagine."Esistono soltanto due farmaci divini che possono aiutarci a sopportare il veleno della realtà senza che ne moriamo anzitempo: la rag [...]

  18. Prácticamente todos los libros que he leído de Márai me han gustado, incluso me han gustado mucho, éste está en la cúspide de mis gustos (en cuanto a este autor), junto a "La mujer justa", novelas diferentes, pero excelentes las dos (sobra decirlo, pero eso es según mis gustos y mi juicio). Diálogos (monólogos, diría alguien) larguísimos, párrafos enormes, ideas dichas, repetidas y reiteradas, y al final me deja una sensación de que valió la pena.

  19. MARAI, Sandor: „Die Gräfin von Parma“, München 2014Nachdem ich bisher fast alles von Sandor Marai gelesen habe dachte ich bei diesem Buch „Das kann nicht von ihm sein“. Es kam mir wie eine Fälschung eines Verlags vor, der eben unter dem Namen so einen Roman herausgibt, der stilistisch nicht zu Marai passt. Er (?) beschreibt hier eine Geschichte, die vor seiner Zeit in einem Gebiet spielt, das nicht seines ist. Ein Mann aus Venedig, der wegen schlechter Lebensführung ins Gefängnis ko [...]

  21. Sigh. Don't know why I picked it up in the first place.The monologues are long-winded. TL;DR. Especially after the visit from The Duke of Parma. I counted the pages instead. Once the old man rambled on and on for 10 pages non-stop.P.S.: bản dịch có rất nhiều vấn đề :| Duke mà dịch là Bá tước, chưa kể những lỗi chính tả ở phần chú thích. Mà nói chung là dịch rất dở. Cũng có thể là nguyên tác cũng dở sẵn rồi.

  23. جياكومو كازانوفا ينطلق وصيته يسبقه في رواية تنطق بفلسفة الحب وصراع الحب الأبدي مع التنقل بين الأيذي الشهوانية المختلفة وندية الأمل في الالتزام لشخص واحد أو استمرار الحياة الملونة ما بين أكاذيب ومهارة شكلية كقناع الحب أعمق مما يكون هنا يكون.

  24. Even in translation the mastery of expressive language is impressive!)) Sandor Marai is truly a remarkable writer.

  25. رواية لطيفة، تدور حول (كازانوفا)، كاتب من البندقية، تبتدئ القصة بهروبه من السجن، وحول حياته بعد ذلك الهروب. وجدتها مزعجة بعض الأحيان في غوصها بالتفاصيل كثيرًا

  26. The thought of Casanova as a character in historical fiction is rather tedious; I don’t care for the historical figure and what it stands for – Don Juan or Prince Genji or Ximen Qing are at least fictitious, the authors can do anything with them, but Casanova? The dude who bought himself a 12-year-old sex slave when he was in Petersburg?… Yeah, well, I bought this book, because it looked good. A famous author, an era I like, and Bolzano – my cousin lives there.Alas – tedious was the ri [...]

  27. Der Klappentext der deutschen Ausgabe des Buchs lautet “Von der Liebe und ihrer Vergänglichkeit”. Doch darum geht es eben genau nicht im Roman von Sandor Márai. Vielmehr beschreibt der Autor in seinem Buch, dass es jenseits aller Lust so etwas wie eine wahre, echte Liebe gibt: “Doch unser Herz kennt eine Leidenschaft, die nicht der Zauber des Augenblicks entfacht und die auch nicht Selbstsucht und Ehrgeiz schüren: Es gibt eine unvergängliche Flamme, die weder Erfüllung noch Gewohnheit [...]

  28. "L’amore dispone di due palcoscenici su cui si recita il grande duetto, e sono entrambi infiniti: il letto e il mondo." (p. 232)
