    Not all the essays are eually compelling in Little Virtues but those that are good are very good They are very dense not in a sense that they are difficult to read but almost every other line is something you'd want to underline and remember There are excellent points about what it means being a writer how to not raise your children and why England is the most melancholy country in the world among others What bothered me a tiny bit was the

    The first essay Winter in Abruzzo is brilliant and poignant She begins in everyday joys and irritations Then her tragic loss shifts the perspective deepening the precarious value of the everyday The essay on Pavese was both unsentimental and moving Some of the other essays left me baffled I gave up on the essays on England before

A medio camino entre el ensayo y la autobiografía Las peueñas virtudes reúne once textos de tema diverso ue comparten una escritura instintiva radical una mirada comprometida llana y conclusivamente humana La guerra. From married life to the murder of her husband the Italian writer Natalia Ginzburg shows a deft lightness of touch in these eleven moving and personal essays written between 1944 and 1960 Ginzburg s deceptively simple style is inspiring making this easy to read for just about anybody and has at least one something we can all relate to Some of the essays chronicle Ginzburg s time in exile with her family during the Second World War others compare the life she experienced in Italy with life in England or the particular differences of preference and temperament between Ginzburg and her second husband The title essay considers what we should teach children not the little virtues but the great ones according to Ginzburg Not thrift but generosity and an indifference to money not caution but courage and a contempt for danger not shrewdness but frankness and a love of truth not tact but love for one s neighbour and self denial not a desire for success but a desire to be and to know Even these few words alone were enough to sit up and take noticeA charming piece on early married life gives way to the memory of her first husband a writer professor and resistance leader who was imprisoned and murdered by Fascist police in 1944 But that was the best time of my life and only now that it has gone from me for ever only now do I realise it In another about shoes Ginzburg asks rather suddenly about her sons What road will they choose to walk down She has been thinking about her worn out shoes and the comfortable and protective pairs provided to her children at their grandmother s house Will they decide to give up everything that is pleasant but not necessary she writes or will they affirm that everything is necessary and that men have the right to wear sound solid shoes on their feet Most often in these essays her children are ever present in the background they are safe with her mother while she lives in Rome with a female friend or they appear only through their toys which cover the floor beneath the table where her husband wrote at their home in the Abruzzi in Fascist imposed exile Caring for her children is not necessarily a pleasure so much as a duty one that sometimes interferes with art but it is nevertheless central to her role as a parent When she is away from her children she anticipates returning to them and to a life of domestic comforts becoming a different person than the woman who writes whenever she pleases Then she writes she shall take my children in hand and overcome the temptation to let my life go to pieces I shall become serious and motherly as always happens when I am with them The most poignant piece of all for me was on her friend the poet and novelist Cesare Pavese written a few years after he took his own life in a hotel near the station he wanted to die like a stranger in the city to which he belonged One of the marks of Natalia Ginzburg s originality is her use of the constructive possibilities of apathy In several of her essays I wondered why I was bothering to read this at all but continued like a moth to a light because Ginzburg s plain conversational style kept me engaged she knew how to pull in a reader sentence after sentence Although not everything got me worked up at least two thirds I was very impressed with Written with a family warmth and a touch of wisdom that as a human being it was simply impossible not to be affected by in some way
