Dietrich Bonhoeffer sagte einmal: „Die ethical einer Gesellschaft zeigt sich in dem, was once sie für ihre Kinder tut“.

Und genau darum geht es in diesem Buch. Die ethical von Gesellschaften, Gruppen und einzelnen Menschen. Wie diese Personen in verschiedenen Situationen reagieren, die Nachwirkungen und die Rechtfertigung.

Was würden Sie in diesen Situationen tun?
Würden Sie genauso handeln wie die Charaktere in den Geschichten?

Was würden Sie in den Situationen denken?
Könnten Sie Ihre Entscheidung letztendlich rechtfertigen?

Es liegt an Ihnen!

W. Somerset Maugham,V. Bianconi's Honolulu e altri racconti (Biblioteca Adelphi) (Italian PDF

| November 23, 2017 | admin | 0

By W. Somerset Maugham,V. Bianconi

È impossibile, leggendo i superbi ‘racconti orientali’ qui raccolti, non finire irretiti negli scabri avamposti di un Impero britannico ormai presago della nice. Un mondo nostalgico e artificiale, in perenne contrappunto con una giungla evocata da rapidi tocchi eppure incombente e foriera di sciagura; un mondo che penetriamo con l’occhio disincantato ma insaziabilmente curioso di Maugham, sospinti ogni volta verso un inesorabile finale – spesso tragico, ma quasi mai catartico. E nel frattempo avremo visto andare in pezzi le identità apparenti dei protagonisti, intrappolati in lividi e rovinosi rapporti gerarchici, furenti ricatti incrociati, colpevoli idilli lavati col sangue. Ancora una volta i sapienti congegni narrativi di Maugham, qui celati nell’evocativo situation della Malesia, del Borneo o delle Hawaii, compongono intrecci perfetti e storie crudeli – che ci consentono di attraversare, rimanendo indenni, le passioni umane più fosche.
