Download PDF by Giorgio Manganelli: Estrosità rigorose di un consulente editoriale

By Giorgio Manganelli

Nel 1967 Manganelli dirige los angeles serie italiana di una collana Einaudi. A preoccuparlo è l. a. veste grafica, che con il suo opaco grigio rende i volumetti simili advert «antichi, nobili epitaffi»: «E si veda il bell'egualitarismo del procedimento, che pareggia miopi, presbiti, ipermetropi, daltonici ed astigmatici in una comune, edificante inettitudine a leggervi alcunché» commenta. Basterà questo passaggio di una comunicazione ‘di servizio' in keeping with a long way capire che tipo di consulente editoriale sia stato Manganelli: eccentrico e brillante, sempre pronto a sfoderare uno humour di volta in volta giocoso, paradossale, corrosivo. Ma non ci si inganni: Manganelli è stato un editor (e traduttore) tutt'altro che sedizioso: disciplinatissimo, piuttosto, duttile e minuzioso. Un editor capace di progettare collane e costruire libri, suggerire titoli, periziare traduzioni con estroso rigore: «... qualche volta los angeles traduttrice tende a dar più colore di quanto non competa a questa gelida carne...» scrive di una Ivy Compton-Burnett che gli period stata sottoposta. Ma capace soprattutto di stendere pareri di lettura e risvolti dove astratto furore dello stile, schietta idiosincrasia e verve beffarda celano una micidiale precisione di giudizio: «La sua pagina sa di virtuosa varichina, i suoi periodi vanno in giro con le calze ciondoloni...» (qui l. a. vittima è Doris Lessing). Una precisione, tuttavia, che nel rifiuto sempre si premura di spogliarsi di ogni drasticità: «Il mio parere è negativo, ma senza ira».

Victor Klemperers Tagebücher haben sich als unverzichtbare und unvergleichliche Zeitdokumente von außergewöhnlicher Faszination erwiesen. "Beobachten, notieren, studieren" - das warfare die ständige Forderung, die er an sich selbst stellte. Seine minutiösen Notizen über den Alltag der Judenverfolgung mitten in einer deutschen Großstadt lösten die selbstgesetzte Chronistenpflicht des zwangsemeritierten jüdischen Professors ein, den die Treue seiner nichtjüdischen Ehefrau Eva vor der Deportation bewahrte.
Bedrohliches Gestapoverhör, vierzehn lange Tage dienstverpflichtet zum Schneeräumen, so beginnt für Victor Klemperer das zehnte Jahr des NS-Terrors. Im "Judenhaus", mit dem Judenstern an jeder Wohnung, spielen sich auf engstem Raum erschütternde Schicksale ab: Demütigung, Verhaftung, Selbstmord, Deportation - immer öfter müssen Eva und Victor Klemperer von vertraut gewordenen Menschen Abschied nehmen, immer öfter fällt im Zusammenhang mit Judentransporten der identify "Theresienstadt", und zum ersten Mal hört Klemperer vom KZ Auschwitz. quickly wöchentlich wird er mit einer neuen Bestimmung, einem weiteren Verbot konfrontiert - insgesamt 31 zählt Klemperer innerhalb eines Jahres.

"Die Tagebücher, in denen genaueste Beobachtungsgabe, sprachliche Meisterschaft und menschliche Größe sich aufs glücklichste vereinen, stellen alles in den Schatten, used to be jemals über die Zeit des Nationalsozialismus geschrieben wurde." Die Zeit
