summary ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Italo Calvino

He passages which he writes to espouse his first value the one that stood close to my heart is his tribute to Milan Khundera s novel The unbearable Lightness of Being When I finished Kundera s novel I had the feeling of ubilant oy and freshness as if I stood beside a waterfall with patchy greenery surrounding it I never fully understood the reason behind the light feeling I had then for the novel is an excruciatingly painful one to read But Calvino explains beautifully His novel shows how everything we choose and value in life for its lightness soon reveals its true unbearable weight Perhaps only the liveliness and mobility of the intelligence escape this sentence the very ualities with which this novel is written and which belong to a world uite different from the one we live in With uickness as his second lecture he brings open the secret of a story which is its economy the form and structure rhythm and underlying logic His love for fairytales and folklore and his varied reading of classics have peppered the whole book and he uotes them laboriously to show the agility of thought and expression Like a tangent that strikes an arc and flow on its own he touches Galileo Leopardi and mythology and he turns himself into a thread that connects the parallels He also predicts the sure raise of mass media and social media and had the foresight to suggest that Conciseness will be the virtue of the new millennia I will confine myself to telling you that I dream of immense cosmologies sagas and epics all reduced to the dimensions of an epigram In Exactitude and Visibility Calvino explores the calculated and well defined symmetry of a work and the beauty and nature of visual imagination respectively Julian Barnes has said Everything you invent is true you can be sure of that Poetry is a subject as precise as geometry It is the same kind of obsession which Calvino exudes His search is to create an art as perfect as a mathematical euation or a geometry To create an orderliness using literature as his medium Literature and I mean the literature that matches up these reuirements is the Promised Land in which language becomes what it really ought to beA work of literature is one of these minimal portions in which the existent crystallizes into a form acuires a meaning not fixed not definitive not hardened into a mineral immobility but alive as an organism Poetry is the great enemy of chance in spite of also being a daughter of chance and knowing that in the last resort chance will win the battle Both Exactitude and Visibility are also the values which could easily be expected in other arts and most importantly in painting drawing etc Perhaps is it because of the fact that Calvino himself was trained in the art of drawing when he was an adolescent and his extraordinary love for movies as a youngster that must have led him to the love of forms and colorsNext to Lightness and uickness my favorite lecture is on Multiplicity No wonder Calvino is inspired by technical engineer background writers like Gadda and Musil and he is also enad by their capacity of excruciating detail He uotes Gadda Musil and Proust all of those authors who never had an ending for their works as a denouement or struggled to have a one something a game which Calvino would like to play in his literary works Isn t it ironic and looks like a divine comedy that this book which stands as his final legacy must itself remain unfinished although each of the chapters is surrealistically complete and conclusive on its own But perhaps the answer that stands closest to my heart is something else Think what it would be to have a work conceived from outside the selfa work that would let us escape the limited perspective of the individual ego not only to enter into selves like our own but to give speech to that which has no language to the bird perching on the edge of the gutt I would not be so drastic I think we are always searching for something hidden or merely potential or hypothetical following its traces whenever they appear on the surface I think our basic mental processes have come down to us through every 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 s posthumous 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 passing 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 poet philosopher 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 English review at the bottomPer spiegarvi perch

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 published in 1988 The memos are lectures on the values of literature that Calvino felt
Were Important For The Coming 
important for the coming At lectures on the values of literature that Calvino felt were important for the coming millennium At time of his death Calvino had finished all but the last lecture The Memos The values which Calvino highlights are 1 Lightness 2 uickness 3 Exactitude 4 Visibility 5 Multiplicity All that is known of the sixth lecture is that it was to ?птемри 1985 г точно преди гостуването си в Харвард и преди да е написал шестата лекция Съдържателност Италианското заглавие на книгата е избрано от жена му Естер Калвино а петте готови лекции Лекота Бързина Точност Нагледност и Множественост събрани в това томче са издадени посмъртно през 1988 а и представляват една от най талантливите прочувствени и аргументирани защити на художествената литератур.
G 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 particularly the visual imagination While he acknowledges that literary work might arise from the hearing of a good turn of 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 writerly preference rather than a universal principle which one ought to apply to writing a novel Still Calvino calls on the example of Borges and the Oulipo to demonstrate what is possible in a novel eve if the pursuit of such a work might not always be advisableAs a part 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 possibilities of hypertext no doubt and his memo on multiplicity dwells in fact on the need for open ended work with several possible endings a multi dimensional 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 infinite possibilities 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 ournal showing the direction he might have gone inviting us to follow This is a series of lectures and in each of them Calvino takes it upon himself to recommend to the next millennium a particular literary value which he holds dear and has tried to embody in his work That way this book becomes not only a manifesto on how to write but also a guide to interpreting Calvino s writings 1 Lightness not frivolity but a lightness of touch that allows the writer and reader to soar above the paralyzing heaviness of the world2 uickness the mental speed of the narrative he takes the rapid trot of a folktale as his model here The narrative should pull the reader along and not get mired up in uestioning the non essential parts3 Exactitude the novel should be perfectly proportioned Calvino says his guiding image when composing a literary work is the crystal the magnificent complexity of it and the fact that it can be held in one hand and admired despite all that complexity The only way to cap Italo Calvino given the meticulousness and conceptual cohesion of his storytelling is an unsurprisingly lucid theorist as well Among his final works these five essays were drawn from lectures he he was prevented from delivering by his death in 1985 each covering a different literary trait he most valued A 6th was never written down Eually ordered and discursive each offers insight into Calvino s writing though much of it This Is Self Evident In is self evident in writing as well commentary on literary history and useful notes on areas of consideration that should really be on any writer s mind when beginning a new work Actually following that prior comment I should say these traits are SO self evident in Calvino s writing that the direct explication of them is almost unneccessary Not that there isn t much to value here but only after you ve already considered works like Invisible Cities and If on a Winter s Night a Traveler for yourself The examples outshine their analysis or any specific analysis for that matter INTERVIEWER What place 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 paranoiac 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 playing a not too credible character Maybe the uestion we should start from is what of myself do I put into what I write My answer I 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 literary philosopher He has always strived to provide an alternative view to see through this world and to decipher its beauty and secrets through the mode of imagination and fantasy His mind is few of those which fascinates and asks me to uestion the very possibilities of human intelligence When I finished reading If on a s night a traveller and Cities I was intrigued and night a traveller and Invisible Cities I was intrigued and and had a nagging curiosity to understand the working the underlying formula the uest which must have lead the author to write them Six Memos for the next millennium provides me a window to understand the methodology and motivation of Calvino s art and magicReading Calvino is an experience in itself He has the marvelous gift to create at the uxtaposition of science and art the man who wants to combine both This particular book under discussion is a loose speech prepared to be delivered in Charles Eliot Norton Lectures in 1984 They became an obsession and one day he announced to me that he had ideas and material for eight lectures writes his wife Esther And further continues to say that the eighth lecture had it been presented would have been On the beginning and the endingof novels But this collection has five lectures sixth one unwritten and provides the dissection of Calvino s own works and also an idea of the enormous range of his inspirationsHeads up Calvino places Lightness as the first value to be discussed As someone whose writings makes the reader to fly it is no surprise that Calvino places this value on top He is uick to make it clear that he is proposing to talk of the lightness which one derives from intelligence thoughtfulness and not the lightness of frivolity Lightness for me goes with precision and determination not with vagueness and the haphazard and aptly uotes Paul Valery One should be light like a bird and not like a feather Of all ай
