Dall’iniziale situazione di Cesira, agiata signora romana dopo una giovinezza contadina, e della figlia vedremo le due trovarsi a fare i conti con la guerra: Lei e la madre ne usciranno diverse, tanto per la guerra quanto per quell’atto di estrema violenza.
Moravia non si accontenta di un romanzo sulla guerra – ce ne sono talmente tanti che un altro, seppur raccontato da chi l’ha vissuta in prima persona, forse sarebbe servito a poco – ma preferisce un romanzo sugli effetti della guerra sulle persone.
Oh, well De fapt 3. Moravia seems to be a master of great endings.
Nothing particularly happens in most chapters of the book, but the last three or four chapters are amazing. The author faithfully describes how war can change a mentality of a girl just like the mentality of a whole society.
I do recommand it, you will albetto regret reading the ‘quite okay’ majority of the book to get to the amazing finale!

To mlravia it, click ciocuara. Potrebbe sembrare la storia di tanti, una storia quasi banale di guerra e abbrutimento e frustrazione e perdita della speranza, come se quest’ultima ci fosse troppo lontana nel pensiero per poterla concepire.
La sua voce vibra, ingenuamente, come fosse l’ombra della coscienza comune, quella che dovrebbe risvegliarsi e reagire davanti al pericolo, allo sprezzo della vita, alla perdita della compassione.
Pensieri suoi, imbevuti di quell’essenza che la madre stessa non riesce quasi a spiegarsi se non attraverso l’inesperienza della vita vera, come fosse un miracolo cui anche noi mravia credere per pura fede. Mi piacevo molto che Moravia aveva preso il punto di vista di due donne, una mamma e una figlia. Nessuno reagisce in un stesso modo. Cosi la psicologia delle due protagoniste era molto speciale, specificamente l’evoluzione della loro carattere.
La ciociara by Alberto Moravia (4 star ratings)
I must confess I had a hard time dealing with miravia book. I borrowed it from a class mate and I was at school, trying to get rid of boredom. I started reading the book and it seemed so annoying and boring from the first ciocaira that I thought I would just drop it. The first pages were almost insupportable for me: All I did was to picture in my mind a stupid, peasant-like Italian woman.
Cesira seems to talk about moragia like such a goody-goody, it seems to me some sort moraiva a soap-opera style and it makes me want to close the book and throw it somewhere on the floor. Even so, I still like it, not the style, not the characters, but what happens in the book. The book, as I said, talks about another thing. I must confess, even though it might sound a little bit sadistic, that I enjoyed the part when Rosetta was raped.
Even so, that was one of the best and realistic parts of the book. It described in a perfect way the atmosphere that existed in the period of World Ciodiara II and its desperation. I liked the ending, when all seemed so destroyed, so real and tragic. I liked the topic, the plot. I liked the ending, it fascinated me because of its tone of realism and tragedy: O could say I rated the book for its topic and its ending that I quite believe to be marvelous, in a way or another; not sweet, of course, but sad, tragic and real.
Cesira and her year-old daughter, Rosetta, flee from the allied bombs in Rome during ciocaira second world war. They travel to the village where Cesira was born. During their journey coociara in the village, the mother does everything to protect Moraviq. However, on one occasion they both get raped by soldiers hiding in a church.
This cruel event is too much for the always powerful fighting Cesira and she suffers from a breakdown. During their stay in the village, a young intellectual, Michele falls in Cesira and her year-old daughter, Rosetta, flee from the allied bombs in Rome during the second world war.
During their stay in the village, a young intellectual, Michele falls in love with Cesira who does not know how to reply to the advances of such a gentleman. Tuttavia mi sembra che le barbarie della guerra non tanto mutino quanto accentuino le ,a cupe e egoistiche, probabilmente precedenti, dei protagonisti principali.
At first the book is really boring, but once you get past the dull bits you can moarvia a lovely and interesting narrative line.
Two Women by Alberto Moravia
And in the center amongst all the bitterness you will find the woman. Frail and powerful at the same time. Ready to give up her life in order to protect her daughter from famine and war ciociaga.
To protect the only thing that in her eyes remained pure. I wanted to read this before I saw the world premiere of the opera but since everyone had the same idea, I had to read some in the original Italian and some in translation to get it done without library fines.
I really like this author and hope to seek out more of his work. The last few chapters pack a tremendous punch. Un libro intenso e toccante. Lo spaccato di un’Italia bellica fatta di persone comuni,eroi moraiva antieroi. Ho seguito ciocaira vicende delle due protagoniste con il fiato sospeso pur sapendo benissimo come si sarebbe conclusa la storia. A very good icociara of war terror from a woman’s perspective.
Written very ably gives us a picture of WW2 in Italy from the perspective of a young widow with a daughter in the vulnerable age. A novel filled with mud, blood, tears and pain ends with hope. Simple narrative with a profound look at the human nature during times, deprived of humanness.
Simple and profound book. One of the greatest books allberto the cruelty of war. Another stunning book from Alberto Moravia.
A very sad book which left a great impression on me.
