Gli animali non sono macchine. Provano sentimenti profondi solo in parte determinati dall’istinto. E li esprimono secondo rituali dell’istinto ma anche con una soggettività che nasce dalle esperienze e dall’intensità con la quale li sentono. Ogni animale ha la sua personalità, e lo sanno tutti quelli che vivono con un cane, un gatto, un uccello. La poesia – verso, narrazione, musica, immagine – è un altissimo strumento per capire, oltre che per affrontare, il mondo e la vita: manifesta e narra tale verità. Nel libro incontriamo delfini, balene, orche, cani, lupi, gatti, asini, cavalli, volpi, elefanti, cervi, giovenche, buoi, vacche, maiali, cinghiali, caproni, capre, agnelli, tigri, leoni, pantere, linci, furetti, scimmie, scoiattoli, foche, cammelli, canguri, topi, ricci, tassi, donnole, pipistrelli, usignoli, allodole, cuculi, cigni, upupe, albatri, falchi, aquile, gufi, civette, gazze, cardellini, anatre, oche, galline, galli, capponi, pappagalli, corvi, colombe, rondini, alcioni, gabbiani, pavoni, merli, tacchini, api, formiche, zanzare, ragni, libellule, rane, rospi, serpenti, tartarughe, pesci, seppie. Draghi e creature fantastiche che condividono le due nature: centauri, fauni, driadi, cavalli alati. Dei e le loro metamorfosi. Cantori divini che ammaliano bestie, piante, pietre. Questo è un racconto sulla reincarnazione poetica del mondo animale: ma un racconto non sistematico. L’autore lo ha scritto liberamente, passeggiando fra le arti lungo un’intera vita. La pagina di Paolo Isotta dipinge una Natura eterna e sempre nuova, pur se mai come ora minacciata; e i simboli antichi che in musica e in letteratura accompagnano gli animali. E mostra che la grande arte canta, con la comune origine, la nostra fratellanza. Il libro è dedicato “A tutti quelli che lottano contro la caccia, in cielo, sulla terra, nel mare”.

The strikingly original ninth book in Roberto Calasso’s monumental exploration of civilization The ninth part of Roberto Calasso’s monumental work in progress, The Unnamable Present, resonates deeply with the first book, The Ruin of Kasch (originally published in 1983, and recently reissued by FSG in a new translation). But while Kasch is an iconoclastic exploration of modern civilization, The Unnamable Present propels us into the twentieth century. Tourists, terrorists, secularists, hackers, fundamentalists, humanists—these are all tribes that inhabit and stir up the unnamable present. But for most everyone else, this is a world that is more elusive than ever before, one that "has no style of its own and uses every style," one that is impossible to grasp in its entirety. This is a world that seems to have no definition or past, but is suddenly illuminated when from behind it the silhouette of history emerges—especially of that period between 1933 and 1945, when the world itself was bent on self-annihilation. W. H. Auden gave the title “The Age of Anxiety” to a long poem set toward the end of the war. Today those voices sound more remote, as if they came from another realm. And though the anxiety hasn’t diminished, it no longer predominates. What predominates is something inchoate—and occasionally lethal. The Unnamable Present a globe-spanning meditation on how previously recognizable institutions of societal control, terror, history, religion, language, and government have scattered and reformed to create a reality that takes its shape from shapelessness itself. Translated with sensitivity by Calasso’s longtime translator, Richard Dixon, The Unnamable Present is a strikingly original and provocative triumph from the writer The Paris Review called “a literary institution of one.”

National Book Award Finalist A heartstrong story of family and romance, tribulation and tenacity, set on the High Plains east of Denver. In the small town of Holt, Colorado, a high school teacher is confronted with raising his two boys alone after their mother retreats first to the bedroom, then altogether. A teenage girl—her father long since disappeared, her mother unwilling to have her in the house—is pregnant, alone herself, with nowhere to go. And out in the country, two brothers, elderly bachelors, work the family homestead, the only world they've ever known. From these unsettled lives emerges a vision of life, and of the town and landscape that bind them together—their fates somehow overcoming the powerful circumstances of place and station, their confusion, curiosity, dignity and humor intact and resonant. As the milieu widens to embrace fully four generations, Kent Haruf displays an emotional and aesthetic authority to rival the past masters of a classic American tradition.

An icon. A rebel. A legend. The films of Francois Truffaut defined an exhilarating new form of cinema for moviegoers the world over. Before Francois Truffaut was a great director, he was a critic who stood at the vanguard, pioneering an innovative way to view movies and to write about the cinematic arts. Now, for the first time in eBook, the legendary director shares his own words, as one of the most influential filmmakers of all time examines the art of movie-making through engaging and deeply personal reviews about the movies he loves. Truffaut writes extensively about his heroes, from Hitchcock to Welles, Chaplin to Renoir, Bunuel to Bergman, Clouzot to Cocteau, Capra to Hawks, Guitry to Fellini, sharing analysis and insight as to what made them film legends, and how their work led Truffaut and his fellow directors into classics like THE 400 BLOWS, JULES AND JIM, and the French New Wave Movement. Articulate and candid, THE FILMS IN MY LIFE is for everyone who has sat in a dark movie theater and dreamed. "Truffaut brings the same intelligence and grace to the printed page that he projects onto the screen. THE FILMS IN MY LIFE provides a rare knowledgeable look at movies and moviemaking." —NEWSDAY

Ibsen's poetry has not until now been widely accessible in translation, which is remarkable considering that several of the poems are closely related to his famous plays. Northam, an eminent Ibsen scholar, offers versions of the 1899 edition of Ibsen's Poems, as well as his Selected Poems 1848-72, published in 1902. Professor Northam's sensitive translations reproduce the metrical form of Ibsen's originals and he provides extensive commentary in the form of headnotes for each poem and an introduction which relates Ibsen's works to their historic and literary context.

This national bestseller exploring the complex emotional lives of animals was hailed as "a masterpiece" by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas and as "marvelous" by Jane Goodall. The popularity of When Elephants Weep has swept the nation, as author Jeffrey Masson appeared on Dateline NBC, Good Morning America, and was profiled in People for his ground-breaking and fascinating study. Not since Darwin's The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals has a book so thoroughly and effectively explored the full range of emotions that exist throughout the animal kingdom. From dancing squirrels to bashful gorillas to spiteful killer whales, Masson and coauthor Susan McCarthy bring forth fascinating anecdotes and illuminating insights that offer powerful proof of the existence of animal emotion. Chapters on love, joy, anger, fear, shame, compassion, and loneliness are framed by a provocative re-evaluation of how we treat animals, from hunting and eating them to scientific experimentation. Forming a complete and compelling picture of the inner lives of animals, When Elephants Weep assures that we will never look at animals in the same way again. From the Trade Paperback edition.
