Microcosms free pdf A journey of the imagination, in which Claudio Magris uncovers the whole of human striving in a microcosm. Delving into his Triestine homeland Magris discovers the city's domestic interiors, its cafes and bars, marketplaces and railway stations, to be the forums into which humanity descends to transact its business- to buy and sell, argue and orate, seek or escape vengeance- to do all the things that define one as human, as a social animal. Magris' prose illuminates a series of excursions, stories, anecdotes and explorations of character - a kaleidoscope of images.
