Drawing on the patterns of words, speech, and identity we encounter in the wider world—subway ads in Mexico City, a Dutch-Japanese phrase book, multilingual airplane safety instructions, one of Italo Calvino's invisible cities—the poems in Hugh Thomas's Maze playfully (mis)translate the maze of languages and language into moments of amazement.

Sonetti dell'amore oscuro - Federico García Lorca
Italiano | 2017 | 310 Pages | ISBN: 8811811589 | EPUB | 372 KB

Custoditi gelosamente per anni dalla famiglia del poeta e pubblicati per la prima volta in Spagna solo nel 1984, i Sonetti dell'amore oscuro, opera forse interrotta dalla morte dell'autore, sono tra i lasciti più preziosi di Federico Garcia Lorca. Definiti da Neruda versi di «incredibile bellezza», ci appaiono come una raffinata danza intorno all'amore: una corona di liriche tutte ispirate all'«eros diverso» di Lorca, dove ricordo, lamento, sensazioni sfiorano le cose, dissolvendone i confini. In quest'edizione i Sonetti sono proposti insieme a una scelta di Suites, anch'esse datate agli anni Venti e fortunosamente ritrovate. Introduzione di Carlo Bo.

Stefano Benni - Dancing Paradiso
Italian | 2019 | 76 pages | ISBN: 8807033445 | EPUB | 0,6 MB

Dancing Paradiso è un locale notturno di una crudele metropoli, dove "non bisogna essere buoni per entrare / prendono anche le carogne / e qualche volta le fanno cambiare". È in quel locale che un angelo custode - "Angelo angelica" - tenta di far confluire i cinque protagonisti di questa narrazione in versi: Stan, il pianista triste, che prepara un ultimo concerto per Bill, l'amico batterista morente in ospedale, Amina, giovane profuga che ha perso la madre passando il confine. Ed Elvis, un grottesco obeso hacker chiuso in casa da anni, forse mitomane, forse assassino, La poetessa Lady raffinata e ubriacona, ossessionata dal suicidio. Cinque "creature della notte / senza un rifugio nel mondo / mannari senza luna", di cui a poco a poco, mentre si avvicina la serata al Dancing, scopriamo la storia grazie al racconto condotto per loro voce. Assoli malinconici, struggenti, comici, crudeli, furibondi..
