Read full description of the books:



«Nella vita esiste una specie di regola invisibile per cui ciò che si è iniziato un giorno prima o poi lo si deve portare a termine». Per vent’anni Eszter ha vissuto un’esistenza piana e senza scosse, nella quasi inconsapevole attesa del ritorno di Lajos, il solo uomo che abbia mai amato e grazie al quale ha conosciuto, per un breve periodo, «quel senso di allarme continuo» che è stato «l’unico vero significato della sua vita». E un giorno Lajos torna: Lajos il bugiardo, l’imbonitore, il falsificatore di cambiali, il mascalzone, Lajos che esercita sugli altri un fascino il cui effetto è paragonabile solo a quello di un sortilegio o di un terribile veleno, Lajos che l’ha ingannata sempre, che mente «come urla il vento, con una specie di forza primordiale, con allegria indomabile» – che aveva detto di amare una sola donna, lei, e poi aveva sposato sua sorella. Ed Eszter sa che Lajos torna per prendersi l’unica cosa di valore che ancora non si è portato via, e che lei non farà niente per impedirglielo. Sa anche che la storia non è finita, perché «gli amori infelici non finiscono mai». Che Márai sia un maestro della tensione narrativa spinta quasi all’insostenibile è cosa ben nota ai lettori delle Braci. Solo Márai può gareggiare con se stesso – e qui, ancora una volta, ci racconta una storia che stringe la nostra mente in una morsa, fino allo scoccare dell’ultima parola. L’eredità di Eszter fu pubblicato a Budapest nel 1939.

Read information about the author

Ebook L'eredità di Eszter read Online! Sándor Márai (originally Sándor Károly Henrik Grosschmied de Mára) was a Hungarian writer and journalist.
He was born in the city of Kassa in Austria-Hungary (now Košice in Slovakia) to an old family of Saxon origin who had mixed with magyars through the centuries. Through his father he was a relative of the Ország-family. In his early years, Márai travelled to and lived in Frankfurt, Berlin, and Paris and briefly considered writing in German, but eventually chose his mother language, Hungarian, for his writings. He settled in Krisztinaváros, Budapest, in 1928. In the 1930s, he gained prominence with a precise and clear realist style. He was the first person to write reviews of the work of Kafka.
He wrote very enthusiastically about the Vienna Awards, in which Germany forced Czechoslovakia and Romania to give back part of the territories which Hungary lost in the Treaty of Trianon. Nevertheless, Márai was highly critical of the Nazis as such and was considered "profoundly antifascist," a dangerous position to take in wartime Hungary.
Marai authored forty-six books, mostly novels, and was considered by literary critics to be one of Hungary's most influential representatives of middle class literature between the two world wars. His 1942 book Embers (Hungarian title: A gyertyák csonkig égnek, meaning "The Candles Burn Down to the Stump") expresses a nostalgia for the bygone multi-ethnic, multicultural society of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, reminiscent of the works of Joseph Roth. In 2006 an adaptation of this novel for the stage, written by Christopher Hampton, was performed in London.
He also disliked the Communist regime that seized power after World War II, and left – or was driven away – in 1948. After living for some time in Italy, Márai settled in the city of San Diego, California, in the United States.
He continued to write in his native language, but was not published in English until the mid-1990s. Márai's Memoir of Hungary (1944-1948) provides an interesting glimpse of post World War II Hungary under Soviet occupation. Like other memoirs by Hungarian writers and statesmen, it was first published in the West, because it could not be published in the Hungary of the post-1956 Kádár era. The English version of the memoir was published posthumously in 1996. After his wife died, Márai retreated more and more into isolation. He committed suicide by a gunshot to his head in San Diego in 1989.
Largely forgotten outside of Hungary, his work (consisting of poems, novels, and diaries) has only been recently "rediscovered" and republished in French (starting in 1992), Polish, Catalan, Italian, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Czech, Danish, Icelandic, Korean, Dutch, and other languages too, and is now considered to be part of the European Twentieth Century literary canon.
