READING: The Second World War is vanishing into the pages of history. The veterans were once all around us, but their numbers are fast diminishing. While still in their prime many recorded their memories with Peter Hart for the Imperial War Museum. As these old soldiers now fade away their voices from the front are still strong with a rare power to bring the horrors of war back to vivid life. The 16th Durham Light Infantry were supposed to be just an 'ordinary' battalion. But their experiences as they fought their way up through Italy show that there is no such thing as 'ordinary'. They struggled to break out from Salerno, then across the countless rivers and mountain ranges that seemed to spring up to bar their way to victory. They learnt their military skills the hard way facing determined German opposition every step of the way. These were no 'D-Day Dodgers' but heroes in their own right. But there was another battle being fought as they struggled to maintain their morale day by day, as their friends died and their seemed to be no end in sight. This is their story. Peter Hart was born in 1955. After attending Liverpool University he has worked as the Oral Historian at the Imperial War Museum since 1981, He is responsible for interviewing veterans of all conflicts from the Great War to the present day. His previous books include 1918: A Very British Victory, The Somme, 1916, Aces Falling: War Above the Trenches, 1918 and Jutland, 1916. His Voices from the Front series with Pen & Sword includes, The 16th Durham Light Infantry, The 2nd Norfolk regiment and the South Notts Hussars.

Genre Fiction
Pages
ISBN 9788891189899
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Ischia is the largest island in the Bay of Naples. The Castle, built by Alphonso V of Aragon in the fifteenth century, is distant 16 miles from the Punta di Posillipo, and 20 miles from the Mole of Naples; it is famous in Italian annals for its long association with the noble poetess Vittoria Colonna, Marchioness of Pescara. Mount Epomeo, the Epopos of the Greeks, the Epopeus of the Latin poets, rises near the centre of the island. The ancient fable made Ischia the bed of Typhoeus. Ischia, called Aenaria, Inarime, and Pithecusa by the ancients, was populated in earliest times by a colony composed partly of Erythraeans and partly of Chalcidicans: they fixed their home where now stands the village of Lacco Ameno, one of the most beautifully picturesque of the whole island. Strabo, Pliny, Statius and other authors mention the therapeutic virtues of the hot springs of Ischia. The number of foreigners, travellers and Neapolitan gentlemen attending Ischia is very considerable.

The Book Poetry and Identity in Quattrocento Naples
The Author Matteo Soranzo
The Publisher Routledge
Release Date2016-04-22
Genre Literary Criticism
Pages 184
ISBN 9781317079453
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Poetry and Identity in Quattrocento Naples approaches poems as acts of cultural identity and investigates how a group of authors used poetry to develop a poetic style, while also displaying their position toward the culture of others. Starting from an analysis of Giovanni Pontano’s Parthenopeus and De amore coniugali, followed by a discussion of Jacopo Sannazaro’s Arcadia, Matteo Soranzo links the genesis and themes of these texts to the social, political and intellectual vicissitudes of Naples under the domination of Kings Alfonso and Ferrante. Delving further into Pontano’s literary and astrological production, Soranzo illustrates the consolidation and eventual dispersion of this author’s legacy by looking at the symbolic value attached to his masterpiece Urania, and at the genesis of Sannazaro’s De partu Virginis. Poetic works written in neo-Latin and the vernacular during the Aragonese domination, in this way, are examined not only as literary texts, but also as the building blocks of their authors’ careers.


The Book A Mystery in Naples
The Author Ermanno Rea
The Publisher Guernica Editions
Release Date2003
Genre Fiction
Pages 497
ISBN 1550712020
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Why did Francesca Nobili kill herself in Naples on Good Friday in 1961? What forces could drive a fervent believer in the redemption of humankind to the most desperate of human acts, to prefer an operatic staging of her death over her ideals and militant faith in social progress? In a diary that walks the subtlest of lines between fact and fiction, Ermanno Rea returns after thirty years to Naples, his beloved, petrified city, to discover why his unforgettable friend chose death over life. An intimate account of the Cold War, A Mystery in Naples explores how the great forces of history permeate our most vulnerable hopes and needs. Rea's Naples in the 1950s is a front line city in the battle between Stalin's communism and the West's transformation of its port into a vast military base run on secrecy and corruption. The author plunges into the city, excavates his own memory, digs up sources, and meets politicians, bureaucrats, journalists and activists who were friends and enemies of Francesca, many of whom are torn by regret about their collusion to survive those bitter years of belligerence. Rea's private inquest gradually expands to become the collective history of a still-scarred generation.


The Book The Ethics of Ornament in Early Modern Naples

Pages 430
ISBN 9781351544771
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The Carthusian monks at San Martino began a series of decorative campaigns in the 1580s that continued until 1757, transforming the church of their monastery, the Certosa di San Martino, into a jewel of marble revetment, painting, and sculpture. The aesthetics of the church generate a jarring moral conflict: few religious orders honored the ideals of poverty and simplicity so ardently yet decorated so sumptuously. In this study, Nick Napoli explores the terms of this conflict and of how it sought resolution amidst the social and economic realities and the political and religious culture of early modern Naples. Napoli mines the documentary record of the decorative campaigns at San Martino, revealing the rich testimony it provides relating to both the monks? and the artists? expectations of how practice and payment should transpire. From these documents, the author delivers insight into the ethical and economic foundations of artistic practice in early modern Naples. The first English-language study of a key monument in Naples and the first to situate the complex within the cultural history of the city, The Ethics of Ornament in Early Modern Naples sheds new light on the Neapolitan baroque, industries of art in the age before capitalism, and the relation of art, architecture, and ornament.

READING: Deel 1 van de Napolitaanse romans Lila en Elena groeien samen op in een volkswijk in het Napels van de jaren vijftig, een tijd waarin het ondenkbaar is dat meisjes hun tijd verspillen met leren. De intelligente Lila moet van school om te gaan werken. Ze probeert aan haar milieu te ontsnappen door jong te trouwen. Haar beste vriendin Elena mag wél verder leren, maar beseft maar al te goed hoeveel slimmer Lila is. En mooier. De geniale vriendin is de eerste van Ferrantes vier Napolitaanse romans, waarin zij met groot inlevingsvermogen en in een onnavolgbare stijl vertelt over twee vrouwen en hun levenslange vriendschap, die even sterk om liefde als om rivaliteit draait. Ferrante vertelt met het verhaal van Lila en Elena ook het verhaal van een wijk, een stad en een land in een tijd vol veranderingen. ‘De momenten waar het echt om draait in het leven, dat zijn er maar een paar. De gebeurtenissen waardoor we zijn geworden wie we zijn, staan als een brandmerk in onze ziel geschroeid. We kunnen er nooit van loskomen. Hooguit kunnen we ze beschrijven. Dat is het verhaal van de Napolitaanse romans van Elena Ferrante.’ De Groene Amsterdammer ‘Als ik Elena Ferrante lees, kan ik niet meer stoppen.’ The New Yorker ‘Zoveel beter dan goed. *****’ De Standaard ‘Een prachtig beschreven vriendschap.’ VROUW ‘Ferrante weet met rake typeringen elk personage tot mens van vlees en bloed te maken. ****’ Leeuwarder Courant ‘Net zo heftig als een uitbarsting van de Vesuvius.’ La Repubblica ‘Ferrante concentreert zich op een postzegel die ze uitvergroot tot wereldformaat. ****’ NRC Handelsblad ‘Zadie Smith is fan – en wij ook.’ Vogue
