Críticas:

Praise for Pier Paolo Pasolini
"[pasolini was a] brilliant intellectual, a director, and a homosexual, whose political vision-based on a singular entwinement of Eros, Catholocism, and Marxism-foresaw Italian history after his death, and the burgeoning of global consumerism."- Ed Vulliamy, "The Guardian"
"Pasolini is Italy's most important twentieth century poet.""- "Alberto Moravia, author
"Pasolini was an artist and thinker who tried not to resolve his contradictions but rather to embody them fully."- Dennis Lim, "The New York Times"
"He had many essential roles in Italian society, and he was always searching, completely open to different ways of looking at things."
- Jytte Jensen, curator of the Pasolini retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York"

Reseña del editor:

The Street Kids is the most important novel by Italy's preeminent late-20th Century author and intellectual, Pier Paolo Pasolini. A powerful, groundbreaking contemporary classic, The Street Kidsis now available in a new translation by Ann Goldstein, translator of Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Novels.
Pasolini's The Street Kidswas heavily censored, criticized by professional critics, and lambasted by much of the general public upon its publication. But like many innovative works of art its undeniable force eventually led to it being universally acknowledged as a masterpiece. It is a moving tribute to an entire class of people in danger of being forgotten by art, by institutions, and by society at large.
The Street Kids tells the story of Riccetto, a poor urchin who lives on the outskirts of Rome. Readers meet him at his first communion in 1944 during the German occupation of Italy. In the years that follow, drifting ever further from family and friends, Riccetto moves from petty theft to more elaborate cons and finally to prostitution. He is arrested and jailed after trying to steal some iron in order to buy his fianceean engagement ring.
Pasolini's message of rebellion and transgression is as important today as it was in the 1960s and 1970s."

Buchbeschreibung Penguin LCC US Aug 2016, 2016. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 208x134x25 mm. Neuware - The Street Kids is the most important novel by Italy's preeminent late-20th Century author and intellectual, Pier Paolo Pasolini. A powerful, groundbreaking contemporary classic, The Street Kids is now available in a new translation by Ann Goldstein, translator of Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Novels. Set in Rome during the post-war years, the Rome of the 'borgate,' outlying neighborhoods beset by poverty and deprivation, The Street Kids tells the story of a group of adolescents belonging to the urban underclass. Living hand-to-mouth, Riccetto and his friends eek out an existence doing odd jobs, committing petty crimes and prostituting themselves. Rooted in the neorealist movement of the 1950s, The Street Kids is a tender, heart-rending tribute to an entire social class in danger of being forgotten. Pasolini's novel was heavily censored, criticized by professional critics, and lambasted by much of the general public upon its publication. But its undeniable force and vitality eventually led to it being universally acknowledged as a masterpiece. 238 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781609453084
