By Leo Tolstoy
Nell’opera di Tolstoj compaiono innumerevoli interrogativi sull’amore, sulla felicità coniugale, sull’atteggiamento morale nei rapporti più intimi tra uomo e donna: servono a indagare le tensioni fra natura e cultura, a rovesciare dall’interno le strutture di una società patriarcale, los angeles sua ideologia, i rapporti fra le classi. Questi temi troveranno il loro punto di massima espressione artistica in Anna Karenina, nei tormenti della protagonista di una storia tragica che è prima di tutto un’epopea della psicologia umana. Tanto nei rapporti “corrotti” tra Anna e Vro‘nskij, quanto in quelli “puri” tra Kitty e LeÅLvin, si dipana un groviglio morale: può perdurare l’amore senza il sostegno di legami sociali o economici? Questa domanda fu al centro della vita stessa di Tolstoj, che aveva pubblicato nel 1859 los angeles felicità familiare, apologia dell’amore domestico attraverso le quiete aspirazioni di Sergej e Maša, e oltre trent’anni dopo scriverà los angeles sonata a Kreutzer, definitiva e impietosa analisi del matrimonio borghese, potente dissoluzione del mito tradizionale della famiglia, capolavoro di ossessione e di cinismo. Saranno forse queste ultime considerazioni a portarlo, los angeles notte del 28 ottobre 1910, advert allontanarsi da casa, abbandonando l. a. moglie e i figli e viaggiando su treni di terza classe fino alla stazione di Astapovo, dove morirà pochi giorni dopo?

It will be most unlikely to disclaim the profound impacts that Michael Moorcock’s Jerry Cornelius novels have had, not just at the genres of technological know-how fiction and delusion, but additionally well known song, cinema, and tv. Or it could possibly easily be that Moorcock was once so completely in track with the appearance of postmodernism that he expected in his writing, in his temper, what was once to return, and the entire fabric that turns out to derive from The Cornelius Quartet, surely, derives from the zeitgeist as an alternative. In interpreting the gathering, for the reader on the cusp of the twenty first century, it acts as a old piece, positing the genealogical effect of a sequence of extra modern works, from Bryan Talbot’s photograph novel middle of Empire to David Bowie’s album outdoors; Jerry Cornelius is that universal resource for far of up to date postmodern (British) well known art.
There is especially little pleasure in Cornelius, and, as such, he's a type of detrimental funding. As a reader, one desires to sympathize with the protagonist, yet Cornelius is such an anti-hero that it isn’t particularly attainable. the single technique to learn The Cornelius Quartet, i locate, is as a researcher—and for study, Cornelius is a slightly great tool, plugging into postmodern conception particularly splendidly and overlapping into the area of hypermedia. Moorcock used to be sooner than his time in lots of methods, however the assortment is still timely.
