Reviews of : Difficult Loves by Calvino Italo PDF Book
Inside this Book – This is a collection of short stories that Italo Calvino wrote over about ten years, following World War II. The four discrete sections were originally published in separate volumes. However, what stands out about the collection is the organic growth that occurs over the duration of the stories. In effect, we see boys growing into men, and girls growing into women. And Calvino growing into an artist. Even though Calvino had just experienced the war, it seemed to be important that he document childhood first, almost as if the war hadn’t occurred. Childhood seemed to go on regardless of what was happening around it. The consequences of war really only became apparent when the boys were old enough to play a role, even one as responsible as shooting the real enemy with guns that once would have been used to kill that evening’s meal.
Inside this book –Difficult Loves PDF Book by Calvino Italo – This was my seventh Calvino, and how ever many other books of his I get to read in the future, I simply can’t see anything topping the masterpiece that was ‘Invisible Cities’. This collection of short stories does see Calvino in wonderful form though, but as we are dealing with 28 pieces in all, some were obviously better than others. It felt a bit like an album with a few tracks too many. But this is Calvino. Even a sub-par Calvino isn’t worth pressing the skip button for. Calvino was one of the master tricksters of 20th century literature, an author who builds an imaginary stage of words around the reader, until the reader almost becomes the protagonist themselves. ‘Difficult Loves’ is split into four sections – ‘Riviera Stories’ is a series of nostalgic vignettes of childhood and adolescence set to backdrop of rural Italy and the magical richness of the Mediterranean. Enchanted Gardens, playing with toads, that sort of thing.
