      Italo Svevo was 62 when this book was published in the s. The book feels very much like an "old man" book and takes the form of a fictional memoir. I happen to like "old man" stories, and this was no exception. Each chapter is essentially a "chapter" from Zeno's life/5(9). Published originally in by Knopf, New Directions is re-presenting this author not only with this work- but with several others to follow. Svevo, who was originally discovered by Joyce, has been compared to litterateurs from Proust to Kafka. Considerably in advance of the public taste, he is still not for a popular taste; his writing, which has much of both farce and fantasy, is also.

        Italo Svevo's "The Mother" is a brief and cruel fable in which farmyard chicks hatched in an incubator find themselves longing for a mother. So Curra, a bold and vain cockerel, driven above all by the desire to find a creature to admire him, sets out in search of this creature: the mother. Genre: fable Words: 1,Brand: Fario.   Italian author and businessman Italo Svevo self-published his novel "Zeno's Conscience" in The book is presented as the memoir of a man named Zeno Cosini, who fills the book with his.

      Italo Svevo, pseudonimo di Aron Hector Schmitz (–), è stato uno scrittore e drammaturgo italiano, autore di tre romanzi, numerosi racconti brevi e opere teatrali. Di cultura mitteleuropea, ebbe in Italia riconoscimenti tardivi e fama postuma.   Compilations like Jhumpa Lahiri’s Penguin Book of Italian Short Stories, aspiring to be standard-setting, can tend towards those course 4/5.
