Cento poesie di cento poeti diversi: un'antologia dedicata a un'epoca, alle sue generazioni e alla sua cultura, che non celebra gli individui ma l'insieme, la comunità. Colpisce soprattutto la ricchezza di questa polifonia: gli autori, presentati in ...more

Il cerchio by Dave Eggers
"
Dave Eggers ha saputo mettere sul tavolo tutte le carte in gioco: se il tema dei social network, della privacy, di internet, di Google e co. è destinato ad essere - com'io credo - il grande Tema dalla nostra generazione di Uomini; se questa è la s..." Read more of this review »

Raymond Carver
“At least

I want to get up early one more morning,
before sunrise. Before the birds, even.
I want to throw cold water on my face
and be at my work table
when the sky lightens and smoke
begins to rise from the chimneys
of the other houses.
I want to see the waves break
on this rocky beach, not just hear them
break as I did in my sleep.
I want to see again the ships
that pass through the Strait from every
seafaring country in the world -
old, dirty freighters just barely moving along,
and the swift new cargo vessels
painted every color under the sun
that cut the water as they pass.
I want to keep an eye out for them.
And for the little boat that plies
the water between the ships
and the pilot station near the lighthouse.
I want to see them take a man off the ship
and put another one up on board.
I want to spend the day watching this happen
and reach my own conclusions.
I hate to seem greedy - I have so much
to be thankful for already.
But I want to get up early one more morning, at least.
And go to my place with some coffee and wait.
Just wait, to see what's going to happen.”
Raymond Carver

William Faulkner
“Caddy got the box and set it on the floor and opened it. It was full of stars. When I was still, they were still. When I moved, they glinted and sparkled. I hushed.”
William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury

Adolfo Bioy Casares
“Non debbo sperare niente. Scrivo questa frase e mi viene un'idea che è una speranza.”
Adolfo Bioy Casares, The Invention of Morel

Derek Walcott
“I shall unlearn feeling,
unlearn my gift. That is greater
and harder than what passes there for life.”
Derek Walcott

Leonard Cohen
“a fresh spiderweb
billowing
like a spinnaker
across the open window
and here he is
the little master
sailing by
on a thread of milk
wish me luck
admiral
I haven't finished anything
in a long time”
Leonard Cohen, Book of Longing
