    Rezension in Leselust .
    http://www.die-leselust.de/buch/calvino_italo_reisender.htm
    Italo Calvino - Wenn ein Reisender in einer Winternacht
    Originaltitel: Se una notte d´inverno un viaggiatore
    Roman. dtv Der TaschenbuchVerlag 1983
    313 Seiten, ISBN: 342310516X
    Der Leser kauft einen Roman von Italo Calvino. Wenn ein Reisender in einer Winternacht. Voll Vorfreude eilt er nach Hause, sucht sich die bequemste Lesehaltung (über die geteilte Meinungen herrschen) und fängt an. Er ist erst ein wenig überrascht: was er hier liest, entspricht nicht dem Stil des Autors, den er sonst kennt. Aber gerade das zeichnet ihn auch aus - dass er immer wieder neu schreibt. Doch was nun? Nach 30 Seiten muss er feststellen: er hat diese Passage, jenen Absatz bereits gelesen. Schnell blättert er weiter: und muss zu seinem Entsetzen feststellen, dass das Buch falsch gebunden wurde, dass der Rest fehlt.
    Der Leser eilt in die Buchhandlung, um ein neues Exemplar zu erhalten. Nicht nur, dass hier eine falsche Bindung vorliegen würde, muss er nun erfahren; es handelt sich auch um ein komplett anderes Buch, es wäre vertauscht worden. Doch der Leser will nun nicht den ursprünglich gekauften Roman, er will das Buch zu Ende lesen, das er sich gestern erst gekauft hatte. Er steht mit dieser Entscheidung nicht alleine da; es gibt noch eine zweite Leserin, die so wie du nun schon sehr neugierig auf die Fortsetzung der eben begonnenen Lektüre harrt.
    Der Leser eilt nach Hause, um so rasch wie möglich mit der Leserin wieder in Kontakt treten zu können, ihr zu erzählen, wie ihm das Buch denn nun gefallen hätte.

    by Bamber Gascoigne
    Italo Calvino (1923-1985) Journalist, short story writer and novelist, experimental writer whose imaginative fabulations made him one of the most important Italian fiction writers of the 20th century. Calvino's career as a writer spanned nearly four decades. "After forty years of writing fiction, after exploring various roads and making diverse experiments, the time has come for me to look for an overall definition of my work. I would suggest this: my working method has more often than not involved the subtraction of weight. I have tried to remove weight, sometimes from people, sometimes from heavenly bodies, sometimes from cities; above all I have tried to remove weight from the structure of stories and from language." (from Six Memos for the Next Millennium Italo Calvino was born in Santiago de las Vegas, Cuba. "I will begin by saying that I was born under the sign of Libra," he once said. (Libra is the 7th sign of the zodiak, operative September 24-October 23; the word for book in Italian is libro.) Both of his parents, Mario and Eva Calvino, were botanists. Calvino moved with his family in Italy in his youth and spent his early years in San Remo, where his father was the curator of the botanical gardens. Between 1941 and 1947 Calvino studied at the University of Turin. In 1940, he was drafted into the Young Fascists and participated in the Italian occupation of the French Riviere, but at the age of nineteen he left and sought refuge in the Alps. There he joined the Communist Resistance in the Ligurian mountains. From these experiences he drew inspiration for his first stories.

    Pass on a Winter's Night
    Written: Jun 05 '00
    Product Rating: Pros: Unique Technique
    Cons: Tired plot
    evileye2's Full Review: Calvino, Italo Calvino's "If on a Winter's Night a Traveler" came highly recommended to me, an avid reader, writer, and linguist. But, after reading it, I have concluded that readers are mistaking novelty and skewed technique for overall success.
    The method of the novel is established by the first two chapters. Calvino shows that he is very aware of his reader by addressing the reader in the second person and eventually placing the reader in the action of the plot. The novel clearly states its devise a few chapters in. It is basically ten short subplots, pulled from fictitious novels, that are cultivated for exactly a chapter and then released. Calvino concludes each excerpt with a "discovery" type chapter in which you, the reader, go on a hunt for the rest of the novel you thought you were reading, only to come upon an entirely new novel.

    How Much Shall We Bet?
    by Italo Calvino
    The logic of cybernetics, applied to the history of the universe, is in the process of demonstrating how the galaxies, the solar system, the Earth, cellular life could not help but be born. According to cybernetics, the universe is formed by a series of feedbacks, positive and negative, at first through the force of gravity that concentrates masses of hydrogen in the primitive cloud, then through nuclear force and centrifugal force which are balanced with the first. From the moment that the process is set in motion, it can only follow the logic of this chain. Yes, but at the beginning nobody knew it, Qfwfq explained, I mean, you could foretell it perhaps, but instinctively, by ear, guessing. I don't want to boast, but from the start I was willing to bet that there was going to be a universe, and I hit the nail on the head; on the question of its nature, too, I won plenty of bets, with old Dean (k)yK. When we started betting there wasn't anything yet that might lead you to foresee anything, except for a few particles spinning around, some electrons scattered here and there at random, and protons all more or less on their own. I started feeling a bit strange, as if there was going to be a change of weather (in fact, it had grown slightly cold), and so I said: ``You want to bet we're heading for atoms today?'' And Dean (k)yK said: ``Oh, cut it out. Atoms! Nothing of the sort, and I'll bet you anything you say.''
