The modern Italian classic discovered and championed by James Joyce, ZENO'S CONSCIENCE is a marvel of psychological insight, published here in a fine new translation by William Weaver - the first in more than seventy years. Italo Svevo's masterpiece tells the story of a hapless, doubting, guilt-ridden man paralyzed by fits of ecstasy and despair and tickled by his own cleverness. His doctor advises him, as a form of therapy, to write his memoirs; in doing so, Zeno reconstructs and ultimately reshapes the events of his life into a palatable reality for himself - a reality, however, founded on compromise, delusion, and rationalization. With cigarette in hand, Zeno sets out in search of health and happiness, hoping along the way to free himself from countless vices, not least of which is his accursed "last cigarette!" (Zeno's famously ineffectual refrain is inevitably followed by a lapse in resolve.) His amorous wanderings win him the shrill affections of an aspiring coloratura, and his confidence in his financial savoir-faire involves him in a hopeless speculative enterprise. Meanwhile, his trusting wife reliably awaits his return at appointed mealtimes. Zeno's adventures rise to antic heights in this pioneering psychoanalytic novel, as his restlessly self-preserving commentary inevitably embroiders the truth. Absorbing and devilishly entertaining, ZENO'S CONSCIENCE is at once a comedy of errors, a sly testimonial to he joys of procrastination, and a surpassingly lucid vision of human nature by one of the most important Italian literary figures of the twentieth century.… (més)

Trata-se de uma obra simplesmente hilariante, muito divertida, inventiva, e seu humor aparece na narrativa em um tom de desabafo de Zeno ao seu psicanalista. Essa modernidade inscrita no personagem se mostra através da passividade do herói e da introspecção de um neurótico encantador. É uma leitura vinda do interior de um homem já no fim da vida, um bem sucedido empresário de Trieste (norte da Itália), que decide fazer um balanço de suas experiências no divã de um analista.

Someone needs to do a gigantic public service announcement and then create a computer virus that will delete all the sentences grouping this together with Ulysses and Proust and Woolf, all of whom are chiefly known for their formalism and prose.

This is Sterne in the late nineteenth century, no more, except with workmanlike prose, rather than Sterne's endlessly propulsive rush of words. The chapters go on for far too long, and although they're quite funny, that's really about all there is to it. The unreliability of the narrator doesn't make the book a modernist masterpiece; that's how comic novels (and, indeed, poems) have always worked.

Having said all that, it is genuinely funny, and some of the scenes have stayed with me far more strongly than I would have expected. I just don't to spend hours looking back through the book to find those bits again. ( )

A self-conscious, comical hypochondriac charts his love and business life, which eventually intertwine. Given Svevo's own history, Zeon's Conscience can be compared to the Japanese I-novel. Note "conscience" in the title is meant in some archaic interpretation to mean "consciousness". There are infidelities, there are business mishaps. Ridiculous self-justifications abound. Too verbose and meandering for me to truly enjoy. Not in the same class as Dostoevsky's The Idiot, but if you liked one you will probably like the other. ( )
