Memories of the Twentieth Century free pdf In these three short books - "Servabo: A Fin de Siecle Memoir", "Miss Kirchgessner", and "The Medlar Tree", collected in one volume in English for the first time - Luigi Pintor retraces a life marked, often in spite of itself, by politics. At once intransigent and ironic, these autobiographical texts are written "to reorder in the imagination things that don't add up in reality." From the idyll of his Sardinian childhood to the transformative experience of the anti-Fascist resistance, and from postwar militancy to the dismal regression of Italian culture, Pintor captures memories that are intensely personal and inseparable from political and intellectual experience. Episodes and observations recur across all three books, but the tropes of autobiography are insistently displaced. Sparse and evocative prose, borrowing from aphorism and fable, struggles to give form to personal and political despair, while Pintor never relents on the attachments and convictions that shape a life.
