Il piacere delle piccole cose

Ho iniziato a leggere (in realtà ad ascoltare, trattandosi di un audiolibro) questo libro di Katherine Mansfield assolutamente per caso, non guidato da recensioni o commenti. Pur non essendo un grande estimatore di racconti, questi brevi quadri mi hanno subito colpito, rilassato, emozionato e incantato.

Non vogliono necessariamente arrivare da nessuna parte ma si limitano a trasmettere con pochissime parole sensazioni vivide; parole che si trasformano rapidamente in immagini.

"Che cosa ci volete fare se avete trent'anni e, voltando l'angolo della strada, vi sentite sopraffatti, all'improvviso, da un senso di felicità, di assoluta felicità, come se aveste d'un tratto inghiottito un pezzo lucente di quel tardo sole pomeridiano che vi bruciasse dentro, spandendo una pioggerella di scintille in ogni intima fibra, in ogni dito delle mani e dei piedi?"

Una scrittura precisa e con un grande potere evocativo. Dettagli, luci, odori, ombre, l'intimità della casa, gesti, piccole cose contribuiscono a creare atmosfere rarefatte e quasi sospese nel tempo; una scoperta piacevolissima che mi porterà certamente ad approfondire altri racconti della scrittrice.

Aggiungo un plauso alla audiolettura di Rita Savagnone, semplicemente splendida nell'interpretazione e in grado di valorizzare al massimo queste bellissime pagine.
Forse l'accostamento dei racconti in questa edizione potrebbe essere a mio parere migliorato; ma è solo una sfumatura.

Read information about the author

Ebook Bliss And Other Stories read Online! Kathleen Mansfield Murry was a prominent New Zealand modernist writer of short fiction who wrote under the pen name of Katherine Mansfield.

Katherine Mansfield is widely considered one of the best short story writers of her period. A number of her works, including "Miss Brill", "Prelude", "The Garden Party", "The Doll's House", and later works such as "The Fly", are frequently collected in short story anthologies. Mansfield also proved ahead of her time in her adoration of Russian playwright and short story writer Anton Chekhov, and incorporated some of his themes and techniques into her writing.

Katherine Mansfield was part of a "new dawn" in English literature with T S Elliot, James Joyce and Virginia Woolf. She was associated with the brilliant group of writers who made the London of the period the centre of the literary world.

Nevertheless, Mansfield was a New Zealand writer - she could not have written as she did had she not gone to live in England and France, but she could not have done her best work if she had not had firm roots in her native land. She used her memories in her writing from the beginning, people, the places, even the colloquial speech of the country form the fabric of much of her best work.

Mansfield's stories were the first of significance in English to be written without a conventional plot. Supplanting the strictly structured plots of her predecessors in the genre (Edgar Allan Poe, Rudyard Kipling, H. G. Wells), Mansfield concentrated on one moment, a crisis or a turning point, rather than on a sequence of events. The plot is secondary to mood and characters. The stories are innovative in many other ways. They feature simple things - a doll's house or a charwoman. Her imagery, frequently from nature, flowers, wind and colours, set the scene with which readers can identify easily.

Themes too are universal: human isolation, the questioning of traditional roles of men and women in society, the conflict between love and disillusionment, idealism and reality, beauty and ugliness, joy and suffering and the inevitabilty of these paradoxes. Oblique narration (influenced by Chekhov but certainly developed by Mansfield) includes the use of symbolism - the doll's house lamp, the fly, the pear tree - hinting at the hidden layers of meaning. Suggestion and implication replace direct detail.
