The Name of the Wind

Description: My name is Kvothe — I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.

I Mandarini

I Mandarini


Описание:Nel quadro dell'intera produzione di Simone de Beauvoir, I Mandarini, insieme all'autobiografia - Memorie d'una ragazza perbene, L'età forte, La forza delle cose, A conti fatti -, è il romanzo piú significativo ed emblematico.
Nessuno meglio della Beauvoir avrebbe potuto raccontare la tumultuosa stagione di questo dopoguerra, in cui gli intellettuali francesi, i Mandarini appunto, erano gli indiscussi protagonisti della vita culturale e politica (basti pensare a Sartre e a Camus).
Le vicende di Henri, Nadine, Anne, Dubreuilh, dei giovani «esistenzialisti» e delle ragazze che girano a vuoto riflettono le lacerazioni di un mondo che non sa trovare il suo equilibrio, sospeso com'è tra speranze, ideali e il duro confronto con la realtà.
