Sei personaggi in cerca d'autore

ebook for KindleSu un palcoscenico una compagnia di attori prova la commedia Il giuoco delle parti. Irrompono sei individui, un Padre, una Madre, il Figlio, la Figliastra, il Giovinetto e la Bambina, personaggi rifiutati dallo scrittore che li ha concepiti. Essi chiedono al Capocomico di dare loro vita artistica e di mettere in scena il loro dramma. Dopo molte resistenze la compagnia acconsente alla richiesta e i personaggi raccontano agli attori la loro storia perché possano rappresentarla.

Il Padre si è separato dalla Madre, dopo aver avuto da lei un Figlio. La Madre, sollecitata dal Padre, si ricostruisce una famiglia con il segretario che lavorava in casa loro e ha da lui tre figli: la Figliastra, la Bambina e il Giovinetto. Morto il segretario la famiglia cade in miseria, tanto che la Figliastra è costretta a prostituirsi nell'atelier di Madama Pace, dove la Madre lavora come sarta.

Qui si reca abitualmente il Padre. Padre e Figliastra non si riconoscono e l'incontro viene evitato appena in tempo dall'intervento della Madre. Tormentato dalla vergogna e dai rimorsi, il Padre accoglie in casa la Madre e i tre figli. Ciò provoca il risentimento del Figlio e la convivenza diventa insostenibile. Tra gli attori e i Personaggi si apre ben presto un contrasto insanabile.

Gli attori, nonostante gli sforzi, non riescono a rappresentare il dramma reale dei Personaggi, i loro sentimenti fondamentali, il vero essere di ciascuno: il dolore della Madre, il rimorso del Padre, la vendetta della Figliastra, lo sdegno del Figlio. Sulla scena tutto appare falso. Questa incomunicabilità, che rende la vita autentica irrappresentabile, culmina nella scena finale in cui la storia finisce in tragedia, senza avere la possibilità di comprendere se essa sia reale o no: la Bambina annega nella vasca del giardino e il Giovinetto si spara.

The Seven Poor Travellers

ebook for KindleAs April comes, the narrator begins a pilgrimage to Canterbury from the Tabard Inn at Southwerk. Twenty-nine people make the pilgrimage toward Canterbury and the narrator describes them in turn. The pilgrims are listed in relative order of status, thus the first character is the Knight. Chaucer describes the knight as a worthy man who had fought in the Crusades. With him is a Squire, the son of the Knight and a 'lusty bachelor' of twenty. The Knight has a second servant, a Yeoman.

There is also a Prioress, shy and polite. She is prim and proper, sympathetic and well-mannered. The Prioress wears a broach with the inscription "All things are subject unto love." With the Prioress is her secretary (the Second Nun) and a Monk. The monk is a robust and masculine man who loves to hunt. The Friar, Hubert, is an immoral man more concerned with making profit than converting men from sin.

The Merchant from Flanders is a pompous man who speaks endlessly on how profits may be increased. He seems grave, yet there is no better man, according to the narrator. The Clerk follows the Merchant. As an Oxford student without employment, he is impoverished and wears threadbare clothes. The Man of Law is a man who deserves to be held in awe. He knows the law to the letter and gives the impression that he is far busier than he actually is.

A Franklin travels with him. He is a man who lives in comfort and is interested simply in pleasure, particularly culinary delight. There are also five guildsmen: a Weaver, a Dyer, a Carpenter, a Tapestry-maker and a Haberdasher. With them they bring a Cook. A Shipman is the next traveler, who comes from the port of Dartmouth, and with him a Physician. The Wife of Bath is next; she is a weaver who wears bright red clothing. She has been married five times (and had several companions as a youth). The Parson is an honorable, decent man who cares for his congregation and adheres to the teachings of Christ.

With him is his brother, a Plowman, who is equally kind. The final travelers are a Miller, a Manciple, a Reeve, a Summoner and a Pardoner. The Miller is a large man with an imposing physique. The Manciple is from a lawyers' college and knows every legal maneuver. The Reeve is a slender man with a fiery temper. The Summoner is quite unfair in his job (he is responsible for serving summons to court for church crimes). If he likes a scoundrel, he can ignore the man's sins. The Pardoner is an effeminate man.

Each of these travelers finds themselves in the Tabard Inn, where the Host, a bold and merry man, suggests that on their way to Canterbury each traveler tell two tales, and on the way back each traveler tell two more. They draw lots to decide who will tell the first tale, and it is the Knight who has the honor.

A Christmas Carol

ebook for KindleEbenezer Scrooge is a miserly old man who believes that Christmas is just an excuse for people to miss work and for idle people to expect handouts. He doesn't believe in all of the good cheer and charity that the season promotes, and he makes sure everyone knows it.

During the Christmas Eve, he rejects a Christmas dinner invitation from his jolly nephew Fred and he goes to bed early.

That night, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former business associate, Jacob Marley, a man who was as greedy and cold as Scrooge is. Marley warns Scrooge that if he continues to live so selfishly, he will be very unhappy and he tells him that three spirits will come to visit his house over the next three nights.

Ebenezer falls asleep and wakes up to find the Ghost of Christmas Past, a small, elderly figure. The Ghost shows Scrooge scenes from the past that trace Scrooge's development from a young boy, lonely but happy, to a young man with the first traces of greed.

Then, the Ghost of Christmas Present arrives and shows him several current scenes of Christmas joy and charity and the Cratchit household. The Ghost informs Scrooge that Cratchit’s young son, Tiny Tim, will die because his family can’t afford treatments a cause of the meagre salary.

The silent, black-dressed Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come replaces the other ones. He shows Ebenezer several scenes of people discussing someone's death; he finally discovers that he is the one who has died and whose death has only pleased people.
Scrooge awakes on Christmas morning a new man. He becomes jolly, charitable and friendly with everybody.
