9788807990687: Inside the Zhivago storm. The editorial adventures of Pasternak's masterpiece (English and Italian Edition)

Doctor Zhivago, the masterpiece that won Boris Pasternak the Nobel Prize in 1958, had its first worldwide edition in 1957 in Italian. The events surrounding its publication, whose protagonists were Boris Pasternak and the publisher Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, undoubdtedly count as one of the most fascinating stories of the twentieth century. It is a story that saw the involvement of governments, political parties, secret services, and publishers.

In Inside the Zhivago Storm. The Editorial Adventures of Pasternak's Masterpiece, Paolo Mancosu, Professor of Philosophy at the University of California at Berkeley, provides a riveting account of the story of the first publication of Doctor Zhivago and of the subsequent Russian editions in the West.

Exploiting with scholarly and philological rigor the untapped resources of the Feltrinelli archives in Milan as well as several other private and public archives in Europe, Russia, and the USA, Mancosu reconstructs the relationship between Pasternak and Feltrinelli, the story of the Italian publication, and the pressure exercised on Feltrinelli by the Soviets and the Italian Communist Party to stop publication of the novel in Italy and in other countries. Situating the story in the historical context of the Cold War, Mancosu describes the hidden roles of the KGB and the CIA in the vicissitudes of the publication of the novel both in Italian and in the original Russian language. The full correspondence between Boris Pasternak and Giangiacomo Feltrinelli (spanning from 1956 to 1960) is also published here for the first time in the original and in English translation.

Doctor Zhivago is a classic of world literature and the story of its publication, as it is recounted in this book, is the story of the courage and of the intellectual freedom of a great writer and of a great publisher.

Il dottor Zivago, il romanzo di Boris Pasternak pubblicato in prima edizione mondiale in lingua italiana da Giangiacomo Feltrinelli e dalla sua casa editrice nel novembre del 1957, è un capolavoro della letteratura mondiale che nel 1958 valse al suo autore il conferimento del premio Nobel. Le vicende della sua pubblicazione sono una delle storie più affascinanti del Novecento, diviso e segnato dalla guerra fredda, della quale furono protagonisti Boris Pasternak e Giangiacomo Feltrinelli e nella quale furono coinvolti stati, governi, partiti, servizi segreti, editori. In "Inside the Zhivago Storm. The editorial adventures of Pasternak's masterpiece" Paolo Mancosu, docente alla Berkeley University, racconta con rigore storiografico e grandi capacità narrative e filologiche la storia della prima pubblicazione mondiale del "Dottor Zivago" e la storia delle successive edizioni occidentali in lingua russa. In questo volume vengono pubblicati per la prima volta l'intero carteggio tra Boris Pasternak e Giangiacomo Feltrinelli dal 1956 al 1960 e una serie di lettere e documenti coevi che lo completano. Grazie alle ricerche condotte negli Archivi Feltrinelli e in archivi pubblici e privati europei, russi e statunitensi, Mancosu ricostruisce il rapporto tra Boris Pasternak e Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, la storia della traduzione in lingua italiana, le pressioni esercitate dal governo sovietico sullo scrittore perché il romanzo fosse pubblicato per la prima volta in Unione Sovietica.
