Tome I - La Fin d'un monde period of history ever since our Paleolithic forefathers who were hunters and gatherers The word connects the visible trace with the invisible thing the absent thing the thing that is desired or feared like a frail emergency bridge flung over an abyssCalvino sosthumous lectures are a grand gallop across a cherished earth of letters The Six Memos For The Next Millennium are a celebration of Lightness uickness Exactitude Visibility and Multiplicity the sixth was never written at the time of Calvino s assing The ruminations and citations extend from Ovid and Lucretius onward through Dante Boccaccio Shakespeare Cyrano Valery Flaubert Musil and especially Borges This is a wonderful construction one without grandiosity but teeming with an organic elouenceWere I to choose an auspicious image for the new millennium I would choose that one the sudden agile leap of the oet hilosopher who raises himself above the weight of the world showing that with all his gravity he ahs the secret of lightness and that what many consider to be the vitality of the times noisy aggressive revving and roaring belongs to the realm of death like a cemetery for rusty old Cars Calvino Is Just So Effortlessly Wonderful He And Literature Calvino is just so effortlessly wonderful He and literature a very intimate relationship and she tells him secrets about herself that no one else gets to hear Until now Calvino spills the beans on what are the ualities he feels are most important to the literature of the future lightness uickness exactitude visibility and mul.

TiplicityI think my favorites were lightness and multiplicity considering that uickness exactitude and visibility seem to be very self evidently ositive ualities of literature who wants to read a slow vague abstract novel But the idea of lightness as a ositive uality was fresh for me not lightness as insubstantial but rather be light like the bird not the feather And the goal of literature as a connector of the wildly disparate knowledges of the modern world the multiplicity of knowledge in every book I think is a courageous call to arms especially if coupled with uickness and lightnessCalvino occasionally meanders a wee bit too far from his topics in the essays but his digressions are terrifically thought rovoking His vast knowledge world literature is Also Inspiring He Basically he basically a list of great authors you should read if they re good enough for CalvinoAlthough this has the otential to be a little bit too academic for some I heartily recommend this as caviar for a hungry mind Lezioni americane sei Sklaven für Wutawia + Gauner mit der 'Goldenen Hand' proposteer il rossimo millennio Six Memos for the Next Millennium Italo CalvinoSix Memos for the Next Millennium is a book based on a series of lectures written by Italo Calvino for the Charles Eliot Norton Lectures at Harvard but never delivered as Calvino died before leaving Italy The lectures were originally written in Italian and translated by Patrick Creagh The lectures were to be given in the fall of 1985 and Memos was ublished in 1988 The memos are lectures on the values of literature that Calvino felt were important for the coming millennium At the time of his death Calvino had finished all but the Let s start with the fact that Italo Calvino is one of my favorite writers of all time His crystalline surrealism easy tone at least in translation and whimsical subjects by which I mean situations and characters inclusive are to me compelling To say that I went into this book with a favorable view of the author would be a gross understatement I absolutely adore Calvino s workNow I am also discovering that I don t really like many books about writing Moorcock s Death is No Obstacle is so far as I ve read the best book on writing out there Calvino s Six Memos for the Next Millennium is a close second A very close secondWhat you won t find in this book are lessons on grammar editorial tips or the best way to market your book to the masses using obnoxious tactics like going on Goodreads and spamming members when you have not bothered to review than a half dozen books or looked to see if said members share any kind of interest in books of your type whatsoever sorry was I using my outside voice when I said that Silly meWhat you will find here is a Changing Face of the Hero peek behind Calvino s magic curtain You will see that even his explanations about how he does his work are magical You won t see the nuts and bolts of how Calvino mechanically goes about constructing his stories though he is very methodical but you will see a high level treatise on Calvino s state of mind as he writes This is ahilosophical text cleverly disguised as a book about writingThe book is divided into five sections Five you ask What happened to the sixth The sixth memo is Consistency lightly The Undisputed Greatest Writer of All Time: A Collection of Poetry penciled into the handwritten table of contentsrovided by Calvino at the beginning of the book In fact it looks as if it had been written in then erased an irony that is as Calvino esue as anything else I can think ofThe first memo Lightness is the one thing that I struggle with the most as a writer Here Calvino is not talking about lightness as it relates to hue but as it relates to mass He gives the example from Boccaccio s Decameron a story in which the Florentine StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story poet Guido Cavalcanti is beset by some men who want toick a It's A Wonderfully Sexy Life philosophical fight with him in a graveyard Guido seeing himself surrounded by them answered uickly Gentlemen you may say anything you wish to me in your own home Then resting his hand on one of the great tombs and being very nimble he leaped over it and landing on the other side made off and rid himself of themNow call me strange it s true but this is something I can sink my writerly teeth into I can apply thisrinciple of lightness not because Calvino has given me specific instructions on how to do it but because he has opened a window for me to stick my head out look around take stock of the landscape and enjoy it He s Lignin Biodegradation put me in the headspace I need to be in to integrate thisrinciple of lightness into my writingAnd so it is with the remaining rinciples Of uickness Calvino states I am a Saturn who dreams of being a Mercury and everything I write reflects these two impulsesAnd reading the context of this memo I know exactly what he means and see that struggle in myself In fact this is my favorite uote about writing ever written But can I take. ай Октавио ПасЗа първи път се предлага участие на италиански писател и идеята е той да представи

This down to the grammatical level and explain to someone else Hardly I know in my bones what Calvino is saying Hardly I know in bones what Calvino is saying explain it in figures and diagrams I cannotIn the section on Exactitude Calvino goes to some extent to explain how vagueness can only be roperly described with exactitude In speaking of the evocative ower of words and the importance of using them in the most exact way he states The word connects the visible trace with the invisible thing the absent thing the thing that is desired or feared like a frail emergency bridge flung over an abyssAgain a bit of intuition and reflection is reuired to really grasp what he is saying Not because his statement is oorly written but because this notion is an abstract concept This writing book if one can assign such a banal descriptor to it reuires the reader to thinkMemo four Visibility dwells on the imagination as the impetus for all creativity articularly the visual imagination While he acknowledges that literary work might arise from the hearing of a good turn of Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church phrase or from an academic exercise the majority of such creations arise from a visual cue in the writer s mind Thus the need to use exactitude to describe the visual seed of a story or book which allows the reader to see into the mind of the writer if but for a moment and anchors the story in the reader s mindMultiplicity is the fifth and most inappropriately titled memo I might have used the word Nestedness or even Complexity to give the reader a head start but hey it wasn t my book to write I do feel that this is the weakest section of the book and Calvino acknowledges as much as the decision to try to form an all inclusive novel meaning including ALL is really a uestion of writerlyreference rather than a universal A (kinda) Country Christmas principle which one ought to apply to writing a novel Still Calvino calls on the example of Borges and the Oulipo to demonstrate what isossible in a novel eve if the ursuit of such a work might not always be advisableAs a art of this fifth memo Calvino states his vision of the aim of literature the grand challenge for literature is to be capable of weaving together the various branches of knowledge the various codes into a manifold and multifaceted vision of the worldUnfortunately Calvino did not live to see the new millennium He would have been fascinated by the ossibilities of hypertext no doubt and his memo on multiplicity dwells in fact on the need for open ended work with several ossible endings a multi dimensional National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 plot that reaches through various realities a la Borges The Garden of Forking Paths and gathers them into one text He even goes so far as to call his experimental If on a winter s night a traveler a hypernovel Perhaps in another reality Calvino is exploring the infiniteossibilities of literature and will one day find his way back to teach us like some kind of literary Messiah In the meantime he has left Six Memos for the Next Millennium as a travel journal showing the direction he might have gone inviting us to follow INTERVIEWER What lace if any at all does delirium have in your working life ITALO CALVINO Delirium Let s assume I answer I am always rational Whatever I say or write everything is subject to reason clarity and logic What would you think of me You d think I m completely blind when it comes to myself a sort of aranoiac If on the other hand I were to answer Oh yes I am really delirious I always write as if I were in a trance I don t know how I write such crazy things you d think me a fake Why Is It Always About You?: The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism playing a not too credible character Maybe the uestion we should start from is what of myself do Iut into what I write My answer I Gods and fighting men: the story of the Tuatha de Danaan and of the Fianna of Ireland, arranged and put into English by Lady Gregory put my reason my will my taste the culture I belong to but at the same time I cannot control shall we say my neurosis or what we could call delirium Italo Calvino is a literaryhilosopher He has always strived to rovide an alternative view to see through this world and to decipher its beauty and After osting a couple grumbling reviews I owe the world of authors some gratitude I first read Calvino s little book in 1988 and eriodically I ick it up and read Everyone Loves Clowns and Other Tales parts of it again Six Memos are actually five lectures illuminating the ualities Calvino most valued in fiction lightness uickness exactitude visibility and multiplicity What s almost miraculous is that Calvino s lectures areerfect examples of the virtues he celebrates graceful amused lustrous with civilized intelligence Criticism The Elements of Computing Systems: Building a Modern Computer from First Principles practiced as delightHere s one of my favorite snippets from the chapter
