If there s ever a character that I d like to give a good clip around the ears to then there s none so than Calvino s protagonist here Pin The cocky little runt But that s not the main reason this is in all probability my least favourite Calvino nor the fact that this was his first novel which as coming of age stories and first novels go isn t bad it s simply down to the fact that he doesn t handle realism as good as his trademark magic realism Considering WW2 rages on in the background and then later comes to the foreground it just wasn t convincing enough It was a pleasurable read carried through with a boisterous prose and had moments that were both funny and poignant but I just wish it had been a little gritty in places Yes its focus is that of a juvenile but even some of the adults felt too childish to me at times Anyway despite the fact that I preferred the second half of the novel when Calvino turned of an eye on the Partisans it s not going to rank high on the WW2 novels I ve read I don t think it helped that most of the Calvino books I d read before were mostly fabled or magical in nature which is I m sure most people would agree his greatest asset as a writer When thinking of Calvino in the future then I doubt The Path to the Spiders Nests would even enter my head Those new to his work would probably find to like about this than I Joy in Africa Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj's First Visit these characters seen Statistical inference for data science through Die Größten Lügen Der Geschichte the eyes of a child is not only a revealing commentary on A better life the Italian resistance but an insightful coming of age storyUpdated Tease to include changes from Calvino's definitive Italian editi.

Read Ï PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ê Italo Calvino Il sentiero dei nidi di ragno Read & Download ¿ 4 Italo Calvino Ê 4 Download Italo Calvino was only twenty three when he first published this bold and imaginative novel It tells the story of Pin a cobbler's apprentice in a town on the Ligurian coast during World War II He lives with his sister a prostitute and spends as much time as he can at a seedy bar where he amuses the adult patrons Af. What you read and what you experience in life are not two separate worlds but one single cosmos Here I go again Another review and my Dearest CalvinoIt s been a spectacular reading year for me I got to know some great people got some great book recommendations and of course read some great books written by great authors Of them I read the following writers for the first time No Kidding Vladimir Nabokov Haruki Murakami David Mitchell David Foster Wallace Virginia Woolf Rohinton Mistry Thomas Bernhard Nikolai Gogol Roberto Bolano to name a few But Italo Calvino is someone I m most glad to discover I have never really believed in the concept of my favorite personbookplacecoloretc is but I suspect Calvino is uickly turning into my favorite writer This is his 4th book I read in less than 6 months and I hope he has written enough to last me this lifetime So considering all the points I mentioned it was important that I dig into the novel that marked the beginning of his magnificent literary career The Path to the Spiders Nests a book title which according to Salman Rushdie was one of the best in the post war literature was officially the very first writing of Calvino Written in a few weeks time in 1946 at the age of 23 the novel was published in 1947 and was well received much to the surprise of Calvino himself A reception that made him critically analyse his novel and this time he rhetorically reacted How on earth could I have written such things It s not his best novel but it was definitely his first a product of neo realism of that time and Calvino s na ve youthful phase a novel which later became difficult for him to acknowlwdged as his own He nearly abandoned it until 1954 when he revised few of its exaggerated elements revolving around anti feminism Political extremism and sexual vulgarity but it was in 1964 much before writing his celebrated works for which he later became famous for that he accompanied this book with a 23 page preface with its share of Calvinian elements which remains his most substantial and revealing self commentary as well as an indispensable objective analysis of Italian neo realism The Path to the Spiders Nests is a story of an orphaned street urchin named Pin who lives with his prostitute sister in a town on the Ligurian coast Italy during World War II Pin is a troubled little kid who knows a lot about people and other things for his own good He likes to be around grown ups because they know and do things he wants to do and longs for their respect and at the same time wants to be the part of the group of kids his own age but can t really relate to them As the story moves to prove a certain point to amateur Partisans whom he regularly used to encounter in a tavern he gets into trouble due to stealing a pistol from a German who used to sleep with his sister But soon got captivated by the deadly weapon in his little hands and hid it in spiders nests a place only he knew whereabouts of Written as part of Italo s experience as a partisan in The Resistance the freedom that post war presented to the Italian literary world inspired Calvino too but he had his share of inhibitions I was a mass of complexes and inhibitions when confronted with all that I most dearly wanted to saythe world of literature did not open up for me like a straightforward and objective apprenticeship but was like a journey which I did not know how to start Full of these youthful ambitions and anxieties I lacked the spontaneous grace of youththe symbolic protagonist of my novel was therefore an image of regression a child As the story moves further Pin found himself caught by Germans and thrown into jail from where he escaped with the help of another Partisan and eventually landed up in one of the various detachments A detachment consisting of men from various backgrounds and fighting for something they only have a vague idea about This confusion is expressed from the vantage point of a child who himself is confused as to how to define the bravado or heroism and idealism in the face of war In his preface Calvino admitted that Pin was to some extent an auto biographical image of his own experience as a Partisan during Italian Resistance Movement I later realized The identification between myself and the protagonist had developed into something complex The relationship between the character of the boy Pin and the partisan war correspond symbolically with the relationship that I myself eventually had with that war If I talk about the story alone then it s a 3 star for me in spite of accumulating all my prejudices together for Calvino Notwithstanding my ignorance about the Italian History during WWII there were many things that intrigued me which depicted a general viewpoint about human nature and its various facets during war time A particular passage that caught my attention was Pin s na ve fixation with killing He too feels that sharp rasping urge to kill even to kill the militiaman hiding in the chicken coopthe urge is remote vague like the urge to love it has an exciting and unpleasant taste like cigarettes or winean urge which all men have he can t understand why and which if satisfied would probably be pleasurable in some secret mysterious way Pin is not lovable in any way He is filthy obscene and very stupid He uses derogatory language looks down upon good people and takes pleasure in pain of others but he s just a child a child born at a wrong place in the wrong time among wrong people But he is someone who could have given an honest account of how despicable people can get during wartime And Calvino cleared Well I m going to write you a story about partisans in which nobody is a hero nobody has any class consciousness I m going to portray the world of marginal people the lumpenproletariat So Pin was meant to be like that But despite all this I can t overlook Calvino s writing which was in its developing stage at that time It s a short book not at all difficult and can be finished in a matter of hours But it s not a forgettable work There are various interesting instances that shall stay with you after finishing it off This book is not a example of great writing but it s exciting And Calvino graciously admitted it also it is the book of a very young manAlmost every work of art has various regrets and choices made accompanying it A completed book will never compensate me for what I destroyed in writing itBut every artist also experiences a coming of age phase which confirms his talent not only to the world but to the artist himself too This is the first novel I wrote almost my very first piece of writing What can I say about it today I will say this It would be better never to have written your first novelMr Calvino I m than glad that you wrote your first second and various other novels thereafter and kindly excuse if I ve taken immense pleasure from your bitter experience related to this book To my fellow Goodreaders if not for anything else get this book for that gem of a preface It s a 10 star for me and my apologies for uoting various extracts from it I just felt they needed to be shared My rating is based on the overall experience this book provided me of reading something written by a young rebellious writerand also by a mature wise and extremely talented one
