Abstract: Innovative, startlingly perceptive and aglow with colour, these fifteen stories were written towards the end of Katherine Mansfield's tragically short life. Many are set in the author's native New Zealand, others in England and the French Riviera. All are revelations of the unspoken, half-understood emotions that make up everyday experience - from the blackly comic 'The Daughters of the Late Colonel', and the short, sharp sketch 'Miss Brill', in which a lonely woman's precarious sense of self is brutally destroyed, to the vivid impressionistic evocation of family life in 'At the Bay'. 'All that I write, ' Mansfield said, 'all that I am - is on the borders of the sea. It is a kind of playing.'

Three cups of tea : one man's mission to promote peace ... : one school at a time / Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin

New York [etc.] : Penguin books, 2007

Abstract: The astonishing, uplifting story of a real-life Indiana Jones and his humanitarian campaign to use education to combat terrorism in the Taliban’s backyard Anyone who despairs of the individual’s power to change lives has to read the story of Greg Mortenson, a homeless mountaineer who, following a 1993 climb of Pakistan’s treacherous K2, was inspired by a chance encounter with impoverished mountain villagers and promised to build them a school. Over the next decade he built fifty-five schools—especially for girls—that offer a balanced education in one of the most isolated and dangerous regions on earth. As it chronicles Mortenson’s quest, which has brought him into conflict with both enraged Islamists and uncomprehending Americans, Three Cups of Tea combines adventure with a celebration of the humanitarian spirit.

James, Henry

Il giro di vite / Henry James ; a cura di Giovanna Mochi

Venezia : Marsilio, 2007

Abstract: La storia del Giro di vite è la storia di due meravigliosi bambini posseduti dagli spiriti maligni di due servitori morti, e della loro infelice e coraggiosa istitutrice, che con tutta la forza del suo amore lotta, invano, per salvarli dal maligno influsso? Oppure l'istitutrice, che è la narratrice del racconto, narra una storia frammentaria, angosciata, allucinata che nulla ha a che vedere con la realtà? Il dibattito critico-interpretativo che ne è nato, e che ancora oggi si riaccende con sorprendente regolarità, accompagna il lettore lungo un secolo di storia della cultura e della critica letteraria: dall'approccio simbolico a quello psicanalitico, dallo strutturalismo al decostruzionismo, al femminismo e agli studi di genere. Un percorso che questa edizione riscostruisce puntualmente, indicandone nella introduzione i momenti e le svolte salienti, e rilevando nelle note i nodi testuali e le soluzioni, sempre contraddittorie, sempre inadeguate ma sempre stimolanti.
