Download E-books Il pellegrinaggio in Oriente (Piccola biblioteca Adelphi) (Italian Edition) PDF

By Hermann Hesse, E. Pocar

"Il pellegrinaggio in Oriente" (1932), il più perfetto dei romanzi brevi di Hesse e quasi lo stemma di tutta los angeles sua opera, racconta un’esperienza unica e inaudita, che ha luogo, non a caso, in quel «periodo torbido, disperato, e tuttavia così fertile che seguì l. a. prima guerra mondiale». Uniti in una misteriosa Lega, le cui regole paradossali e sapienti ripetono – riflesse nello specchio del Bund romantico – quelle di antichi gruppi iniziatici, uomini disparati si mettono in cammino verso una meta che non è un luogo ma una dimensione altra della realtà. Ricercatori del tao e della kundalini, silenziosi aiutanti, il pittore Paul Klee, lo stesso Hermann Hesse, che è il protagonista, e tanti altri personaggi partecipano a questo singolare viaggio che non ha certo inizio con loro ma è un incessante movimento che percorre il pace da sempre, e in cui tutti i nomi della storia possono comparire quali momentanei compagni. Ma questo è solo il primo dei molti e conturbanti segreti che incontrerà il lettore nei meandri di una favola che insegna un nomadismo radicale da una realtà che ci è imposta verso un’altra, sfuggente, beffarda e piena di tranelli, che consistent withò poi si rivelano essere mezzi pedagogici di un violento svezzamento, usati according to dissolvere le ultime, tenaci resistenze al viaggio senza ritorno verso Oriente. Non meraviglia – dato questo schema e los angeles felicità con cui è sviluppato – che il piccolo libro sia stato riscoperto ed esaltato in questi ultimi anni da tanti che hanno sentito di soffocare nell’aria in cui erano nati.
