Download PDF by Vladimir Nabokov,S. Vitale: La veneziana: e altri racconti (Biblioteca Adelphi) (Italian

By Vladimir Nabokov,S. Vitale

"La veneziana" comprende una sequenza di racconti scritti in russo da Nabokov, quasi tutti fra il 1923 e il 1925. È questo il periodo che rimane in gran parte da scoprire della sua opera (fino a tempi molto recenti quattro di questi racconti, incluso "La veneziana", erano inediti anche in russo, mentre tutti lo sono in keeping with l’Italia). Qui Nabokov si mostra già maturo e gioca su mutevoli scenari: los angeles Russia perduta, l’Inghilterra degli studi universitari, los angeles Svizzera di brevi vacanze sulla neve, los angeles Germania, nuova patria casuale e non amata. Ciascuno di questi scenari, che poi rimarranno inevitabili nella geografia mentale di Nabokov, è una sfida in line with una divorante vocazione narrativa, according to una scrittura che sonda con felice stupore le sue latenti possibilità, i suoi molteplici toni e registri. Il giovane letterato russo in esilio sfodera le sue armi senza tremori o esitazioni: ha già individuato il nemico, e alle scontate ma sempre pericolose manovre del «realismo» oppone l. a. gioiosa e massiccia offensiva di un iridato linguaggio ricco di accostamenti imprevisti, fulminee diversioni spazio-temporali, una già smaliziata strategia dell’illusione e del trompe-l’oeil. Così le minime cose dell’anima e del mondo vengono trionfalmente sottratte alla tirannia del pace e ricomposte in un nuovo arabesco, in una nuova armonia dove nulla è brutto, casuale. Plumbeo e tremendo se guardato con l’austero e presuntuoso pince-nez dell’«obiettività», il reale rivela suoni e colori prodigiosi a chi lo osserva attraverso il diafano cristallo magico del gioco, dell’ironia, della pietà, dell’amore, della creazione artistica.
