Literature and life, a union which can not be deferred for many people,
but is fatal for somebody. How can you imagine to combine the two words
if you stay in a provincial town, and if you work as a responsible for
social and cultural services in a small town hall, where people are more
interested in TV wathching and drinking in the bars?
We can reflect about Leonardo Sciascia's words, written in a book entitled
"The witch and the captain":
Because the man can know nothing
about himself and about the world
if the literature doesn't teach him.
A glance at the books
Enrico Thovez, poet of the beginning of XX century:
here are two lyrics from Poema dell'Adolescenza,
inspired to a strong psychologism.
Catullus: this Latin poet lived 50 years before
Christ, but he's an evergreen loved by youth people all over the world
A tribute to Latin author Lucius Anneus Seneca:
he lived in the first century after Christ, he wrote moral essays, he gives
us a very modern passage from his Epistles to Lucilius.
Some thoughts about Enrico Thovez's art and works.
