Candide: Or Optimism (Penguin Classics)
Candide: Or Optimism (Penguin Classics)
von Francois Voltaire
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 11,48

4.0 von 5 Sternen I once thought it greater..., 27. Juli 1999
There was a time when a thought CANDIDE to be a masterpiece of humankind. after analysing it more carefully, I realize it isnt really a book to make us think, It is a retoric book of action which induces us to accept Voltaire's decision without really knowing WHY Leibniz argued THIS world to be the best world. It not a so easy thing to understand after you read Leibniz MONADOLOGY. Candide is great, but it is not on the top of the literary tower on the side of ODYSSEY or DIVINE COMEDY or BROTHERS KARAMAZOVI.


Tartuffe, by Molière
Tartuffe, by Molière
von Molière
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 12,82

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Masterpieces of humanity, 8. April 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tartuffe, by Molière (Taschenbuch)
Tartuffe is, without doubt, one of the works responsible for placing Molière alongside to the geniuses of Aeschilus and Shakespeare. Here, the human imposture and hipocrasy is not just seen as a way for corrupting others lives, but of also corrupting the own love for all which really matters in life. Tartuffe surpasses the means of a simple comedy of ways to become itself a drama of human being; every time someone laughs of Tartuffe, he/she must do it recognizing that something has to be changed so that he/she does not become laughable.


The Aeneid (Everyman's Library Classics & Contemporary Classics)
The Aeneid (Everyman's Library Classics & Contemporary Classics)
von Virgil
  Gebundene Ausgabe
Preis: EUR 20,53

5.0 von 5 Sternen ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS, 4. März 1999
Virgil's Aeneid is one of the great books the geniuses of humanity have written. Great is the tale, great is the sense and perception about the human affairs. Just like a classic, it impossible to describe its greatness on few lines, or even on many, because the light of the genius brights above it all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Candide, ou l`optimisme, 14. Mai 1998
For what reason would the greastest tale of François-Marie Arouet (Voltaire) be considered one of the best books ever written? For answering such a question, I would have to waste the pages of a little essay, but if you want a short response, there it goes, whomever is not drowned on the best-seller trash of our comtemporary times will get the point: If thee think Candide's philosophical, historical and sociological analyses are as small as the book, thee haven't understood the story, or better saying, never really read it; If you just laugh at the sufferings of the characters, remember laughing is one of the best ways for showing much of the human misery, and so,realize about what you smiled at, if it was not at yourself. I won't write much more, READ the Candide and, as Italo Calvino said, have this "moving picture of the velocity" on your hands, a book destined for immortality, as his writer and maker, who once said: "to write is to act". OUI, Such is the power of a philosopher that cultivated his own garden, and ours.


The Divine Comedy
The Divine Comedy
von Dante Alighieri
  Gebundene Ausgabe

5.0 von 5 Sternen L`amor che move il sole il`atre stelle., 14. Mai 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Divine Comedy (Gebundene Ausgabe)
In his COMMOEDIA, Dante summarized the medieval thinking, much of the human history and his own general knowledge , beyound throwing his principal criticized people (for their behaviours and decissions) on the supplicies of the Hell. Infantile opinnion will it be to judge the FLORENTINII NASCENTI NOR MORIBUS just for his heavenly poetry. In the COMMOEDIA, as in any literary work, the need is to feel the pleasure as trying to understand what we`re reading, for occult, science and moralism are among the songs of immortality. For us, readers, is the work to delight the glory of Dante`s travel and discern his immense intolerence. May Virgilii, the human reason, lead us. So that we labour our fate, beyound the power of the BELLE STELLE. DIXIT.
