Description

Luciano Corona, con la pluriennale esperienza di insegnante di lettere, ha capito quanto sia difficile "far digerire" i classici della letteratura italiana, in particolare quelli più lontani nel tempo. Sono soprattutto lingua e sintassi a renderli in sostanza illeggibili. Un giorno, un amico pittore che vuole illustrare la Divina Commedia, gli chiede se non sarebbe possibile averne una versione "accessibile ai comuni mortali". Un altro giorno, un'amica spagnola che conosce perfettamente l'italiano e che si è laureata in filosofia qui da noi, gli confessa di aver provato a leggere il testo dantesco, senza riuscirci. Da qui l'idea di "riscrivere" le grandi opere della letteratura italiana, perché tutti possano leggerle.

From Publishers Weekly

15 October 2007 – Datlow (The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror) makes a solid claim to being the premiere horror editor of her generation with this state-of-the-art anthology of 20 new stories by some of horror fiction’s best and brightest. Several outstanding selections feature imperiled children and explore the horrific potential of childhood fears, among them Glen Hirshberg’s “The Janus Tree,” which gives a creepy supernatural spin to a poignant memoir of adolescent angst and alienation, and Stephen Gallagher’s “Misadventure,” in which a young man’s near-death experience as a child endows him as an adult with consoling insight into the afterlife. The compilation’s variety of approaches and moods is exemplary, ranging from the natural supernaturalism of Laird Barron’s cosmic horror tale “The Forest,” to the unsettling psychological horror of Lucius Shepard’s “The Ease with Which We Freed the Beast”; the metaphysical terrors of Conrad Williams’s “Perhaps the Last”; and the slapstick grotesquerie of K.W. Jeter’s black comedy “Riding Bitch.” If this book can be taken as a gauge of the vitality of imagination in contemporary horror fiction, then the genre is very healthy indeed.
