Excerpt from Herodes Und Mariamne Christian Friedrich Hebbel was born March 18, 1813, at Wesselburen, a small village of North Dit marsch in the Duchy of Holstein then belonging to Denmark. His father, Klaus Friedrich Hebbel, a mason by trade, was a poor day-laborer often out of employment. As proud as he was poor, embittered by failure, he became a sullen and silent man. In rsir, at the age of 22, he had married Antje Marga rete Schubart, a servant-girl two years his senior, of good disposition but of very violent temper. After losing through misplaced confidence their little home, they lived with another poor couple in a miserable hovel in such extreme poverty that both food and fire were often lacking. They had two children, both boys, of whom Friedrich was the elder. He inhet ited both the embittered pride of the father and the passionate temper of the mother.

Ci sono opere che non «raffigurano» spazi ma li creano, ed è il caso di Paul Celan, che chiede alla sua poesia di essere ‘occupabile’, e tradursi, trasferirsi nella lettura altrui, modificandosi. In questo senso la sua poesia è dicibile come traduzione- interpretazione, dinamica ripetizione, rilettura del testo, nello spazio e nel tempo. I contributi italiani raccolti in questo volume cercano spazi materiali, memoriali, artistici, intermediali, didattici, geopoetici, biografici, psicanalitici, linguistici nella poesia celaniana, e ne aprono di nuovi a partire da questa. Ogni sette anni, nel 2014 a Roma come già nel 2007 a Napoli, abbiamo provato a fare il punto della riflessione recente su Paul Celan in Italia. Molti giovani studiosi si sono confrontati con qualche più esperto lettore e interprete (artistico, esegetico, poetico) di Celan, ed è emersa una vicinanza alla terra e alla materia, che anche quando è maceria combusta rimanda alla possibile ricostruzione in spazi che chiedono di essere aperti, districati e scoperti.

In little more than a decade Rachel Whiteread has emerged as one of the most significant British artists of the past fifty years, with a substantial international reputation. Based upon a practice of inverted casting - making space tangible - Whiteread's work offers both intimate and public meditations on vital questions of history, memory and social change. But these are also artworks with profound and carefully weighed formal concerns and an affiliation to the critical issues of sculpture raised throughout the twentieth century. Often surrounded by controversy, Whiteread's work is, perhaps, so provoking because it so successfully melds artistic and historical issues. Out of the solidification of space Whiteread creates an archive that compacts and makes legible those intangibles that comprise so much of ordinary life: lost memories and stilled voices. Whiteread's work is appraised both in terms of its relationship to art history and its social and political impact, and examined for possible theoretical approaches through which we may better understand this most complex and challenging of contemporary artists.

Il volume, pubblicato nell'ambito delle celebrazioni per il 450° anniversario della morte di Michelangelo (Caprese Michelangelo, 1475 - Roma, 1564) offre un interessante percorso per comprendere l'influenza di Michelangelo nelle arti visive, nell'architettura e nel design nel corso del Novecento. Attraverso numerosi saggi critici, viene illustrato il progressivo abbandono della retorica fiorita attorno all'artista fino agli anni quaranta, improntata a un eroico titanismo, sottolineando come il linguaggio di Michelangelo abbia assunto man mano un significato esistenziale, offrendosi anche come esempio formale per la politica della ricostruzione, fino a riacquistare lo status di un vero e proprio mito nazionale a ridosso dei festeggiamenti per il centenario dell'unificazione italiana. In questo contesto, il volume da conto delle celebrazioni che si svolsero nel 1964 e nel 1975 in occasione dei centenari michelangioleschi, e i dei restauri che portarono al rifiorire di Casa Buonarroti. Accanto a una scelta di disegni di Michelangelo, e presentata una ricca selezione di opere di artisti del Novecento e contemporanei. Completa il volume una bibliografia aggiornata.

As the title indicates, Pedro Calderon de la Barca's Jealousy tragically dramatizes the same key themes and emotions that preoccupied Shakespeare in Othello. His portrayal of the mind and passion of King Herod, a ruler traditionally vilified in Catholic Spain during Calderon's age, reveals a compassionate understanding and lack of prejudice. Through the madness of possessive love and jealousy, Herod first destroys his wife's love and trust, and then her life.
