Of course, geometers and scientists have an excellent rapport with the concept of inclination. In general, we have preferred translations that convey this aim.
Salvatore Battaglia, Torino: Unione tipografico-editrice torinese, Nor does it create any hostility or other emotional tones, which are programmatically absent. The same cannot be said about the many philosophers and other experts who, in various modes and with uncertain results, have for centuries discussed the thorny problem of human inclinations.
Here, indeed, nothing is clear: geometrical exactitude suddenly vanishes and the greatest disquietude reigns. According to modern dictionaries, when the term moves from geometry to common speech and, even more, to philosophical language, it makes a crucial leap, passing from its proper sense to acquire a figurative sense—which, as usually happens, inevitably complicates the situation. Philosophy, for its part, together with theology, often surrounds the term with fateful adjectives, making the question of its meaning even harder.
To this must be added, as one of the most obvious indices of problematicity, the fact that philosophical language tends to include under the general definition of inclination the vast and frightening catalog of desires, instincts, and passions.
The list of sightings of a given pasta may well consist of a region, the outskirts of a city in a different region, and a valley somewhere. Oretta and I consider ourselves very fortunate indeed that our book is being published by University of California Press and thank Darra Goldstein, Sheila Levine, and Dore Brown for their wise and good-humored counsel throughout the months of translation and editing.
Oretta doubted that a single copyeditor could combine the culinary expertise and cultural breadth needed for the task, while I feared that no one could possibly have the strength, patience, and restraint I knew the job required. But there was no need to worry. We are obliged to the press for assigning just maureen b.
Oretta Zanini De Vita has been my friend here in Rome for more than twenty years, and much of what I know about Italian food and its history has come from listening to Oretta talk and from translating her work. She is the classic walking encyclopedia of Italian social history and so much more, and gives her pearls for the asking. And speaking of walking encyclopedias, my friend Leofranc Holford-Strevens, in Oxford, has replied within minutes to all my most desperate e-mail queries on everything from Albanian diacritical marks to Greek citations.
Thanks, too, as always, to the irreplaceable Howard Isaacs, my partner for the Dictionary of Italian Cuisine. I could never have translated this book without that earlier work, and I blessed him every time I found exactly the term I sought over these last months.
This page left intentionally blank voyage in the pasta universe The Reasons for This Research [oretta zanini de vita] Pasta may be the unchallenged symbol of Italian food, yet no in-depth research has ever been done on its many shapes.
Recent cookery texts are stuck mainly on the nobler stuffed pastas, with little attention to their form, and recipes nowadays almost always call for factory-made pasta. One small exception is Luigi Sada and his Spaghetti e compagni,1 where he talks about the shapes of homemade pasta in Puglia, his home region. There were others, especially in the s, who tried to impose some order on the world of pasta shapes, but they eventually threw in the towel. The scholars who have studied food over time have largely relied on early printed texts.
I chose a different way. First, I sought oral sources for what remains alive in memory of the pasta-making tradition, and then corresponding evidence in printed texts. It has been a long and exhausting journey. I traveled to small towns and talked with samplings of very old people, trying to jog their memories about the pasta-making traditions and rituals of the past.
Even though much has changed, a great deal remains. Important in this regard is the work of associations and other organizations laboring on the spot, many established ad hoc, such as the Accademia del Pizzocchero di Teglio, dedicated to preserving the pizzocchero of the Valtellina. My interviews with these older people also made me more aware of how rapidly the agrarian landscape had been transformed and how the grain varieties 1 2 voyage in the pasta univ erse once essential to the making of pasta and other foods had disappeared with the entry onto the market of superior varieties from other countries.
Greater prosperity and better living conditions in some areas can be inferred from the ingredients used in the local pasta. For example, in Tuscany, frascarelli contained eggs; in Piedmont, the old farm wealth was visible in the typical eggrich tajarin, sometimes even made only with yolks.
A true pastario—a catalog of pastas—that is, one that includes homemade pastas and that covers all of Italy, has never been attempted.
The classic printed texts, from the s on, include clusters of pasta terminology here and there. For certain pastas, we know the name but not the shape.
Some books shed light on the presence of pastas in a well-delimited territory. Whatever the format of these pastas, the scalco knew exactly where they came from. Tortelli appear both large and small, down to tortelletti piccolissimi. The weather contributed, too, with tempestine little storms and grandinine little hailstones , and the lame in the village became pastas called gobbini and stortini.
Saints and demons populate the Italian pasta universe, too, linked to sagas, legends, beliefs, and superstitions. Libya inspired tripolini from Tripoli , which entered the market in , and bengasini from Benghazi. Abyssinia gave its name to abissini, and assabesi honor the download of the port of Assab by the Genoese Rubattino Shipping Company in These names do not always denote the pasta format itself.
Sometimes they refer to the shape of African headdresses, or to the rings anelli the women of Benghazi wore in their ears, though more often the terms are assigned without precise reference.
Ravioli and Tortelli The terms raviolo and tortello, along with such related terminology as anolino, agnolino, cappelletto, tortellaccio, and the like, have caused great confusion over time. Rather than enter into the merits of linguistic problems that do not concern my work, I will instead simply set forth, in chronological order, the texts consulted. Giambonino da Cremona,8 writing in the late thirteenth century, collects some eighty Arab recipes of both gastronomic and nutritional interest taken from a monumental Arabic treatise on gastronomy by Ibn Butlan, a physician who lived in Baghdad and died in Therefore, at its landing with the Muslims in Sicily, the raviolo was probably wrapped in pasta.
But if such a dish was served to the good Salimbene, it means that a bite-sized food, made with diverse ingredients from bread to cheese and variously spiced and sauced, must have been circulating at the same time. Thus, it seems the raviolo arrived with its pasta mantle, but then lost it and became confused with the gnocco. For the very few able to read and write, then, the tortello was a raviolo covered with pasta, a distinction still made in Tuscany. Meanwhile, additional terms emerged from other locations to reopen the confusion.
Caterina Prato, whose Manuale di cucina was published in Trieste in , describes the raviolo as wrapped in pasta and illustrates a half-moon raviolo alongside a wheel-type pasta cutter.
For example, the presence of orecchiette can be traced to the domination of Puglia by the Angevin lords of Provence in the thirteenth century. They resemble the crosets of Provence, which are still made in Piedmont with the same name.
The same pasta is known as manare in the areas of Basilicata where a number of Albanian communities reside. Fairs and markets, some of which lasted for months at a time—the fair held from March to October at the Abbey of Farfa in Sabina, in northern Lazio, is a good example—likely contributed in no small measure to the diffusion of recipes and foods. Workers who migrated for seasonal labor or transhumance also carried knowledge of new foods back and forth.
Finally, equal importance must be ascribed to specialist artisans24 who frequently took their work here and there in the service of this or that signore. On the other hand, some types of pasta took the opposite path: they were typical of a particular territory, yet were unknown only a few miles away. Often this was because the two territories once belonged to different estates, though sometimes the reason lay in chauvinistic hostilities between two nearby towns.
From Homemade Pasta to the Maccheronaio Homemade pasta moved early from family kitchens into the workshops of the mills. With the arrival of the early machines, the small formats—gnocchetti, strascinati, and farfalline, to name a few—remained the province of the women. Much later, with the development of hydraulic mills, these small, family-run industries were not replaced by the nascent industry, but have continued operation up to our own day.
It could take two to three hours to stomp a batch of semola with cold water. The dough was then transferred onto the rolling pin, in those days called a schianaturo or sometimes laganaturo , with which the women made the various shapes of fusilli, tufoli, vermicelli, and the like by hand.
Every day, these pastas were duly dried, packed into large baskets, and carried by mule down remote mountain paths to Naples, the populous capital of the kingdom, as in a religious procession. They made the work faster and easier, and at the same time increased production to meet an ever-more-pressing demand. The maccheronaio was often willing to extend credit to those too poor to pay cash. But this ready supply of pasta was an urban, a Neapolitan, phenomenon.
Now dough could be made with hot water, which gave better results. From there it was taken immediately into the sun or warm open air, 8 voyage in the pasta univ erse with due attention to drafts. Fresh pastas are hygroscopic and sensitive to weather, which is why the early pasta makers of the coast were almost always magicians.
The old chief pastaio pasta maker knew that the winds usually changed at noon and midnight along the coast, and that his drying racks would need attention at those hours. In addition to this portrait of Cervantes, he produced several illustrations for the edition of Don Quixote published by the Spanish Academy. The engraver of this print was Fernando Selma, also a Spaniard from Valencia — The English, seeing that x, pronounced it the way that tradition has established in their language.
I will always write Don Quixote when referring to the book and Don Quijote when mentioning the character, but the authors of the articles included in this book vary in their usage.
These titles normally refer to the book as one work, but the reader may keep in mind that, in the original, there were two parts with slightly different titles. Next to them La Mancha is supposed to look and sound ridiculous. Fifty-eight years old at the time and largely unsuccessful in his previous literary ventures, Cervantes seems to have decided to gamble it all with this bold and original book: the story of a middle-aged, sedentary man who suddenly decides to become a knight-errant and sets out in search of adventures.
Don Quijote and his creator both invent themselves in a quest for freedom that their advanced age makes urgent, breaking on the one hand with literary tradition and on the other with social expectations. The book went through various printings, was translated into other languages very soon, publishers became interested in other works of his, and an apocryphal sequel to Don Quixote appeared in This book was also a major success, completing a narrative sequence of as much consequence as the combined Iliad and Odyssey.
Some critics consider part II an even better novel than the original. This is possible because of the profound unity given the entire ensemble by the protagonist, who became the most famous literary character of the modern era, whose likeness has been represented more than any other. Because he is old and single, Don Quixote is, in contrast to other modern heroes, beyond the pull of family determinations, be they real or imagined. Being ostensibly and avowedly a parody of chivalric romances, the book takes some of its shape from them, particularly the sequence of adventures in which the protagonist engages while on the road.
It is a decisive step in the evolution of what we now know as realism. This work developed substantially the new Picaresque genre, particularly the depiction of criminal life.
More important, Don Quixote tells the life of the hero until his death; life is the narrative unit and that which gives the book its shape. Chivalric romances and picaresque novels do not clash in Don Quixote; they both live within the mad hidalgo. Cervantes appreciated and adapted other narrative schemes drawn from bookish traditions—for instance, the Byzantine romance—which he used in his posthumously published The Trials of Persiles and Sigismunda He also experiments with several others in the stories interpolated in Don Quixote and those he included in his Exemplary Stories The results were often brilliant.
In the famous prologue to part I, Cervantes states, in the spirit of this game of multiple attributions, that he is not the father but the stepfather of the work. The literary work is the product of human labor, such as that performed by the various agents who generate the texts. This is a very humble, Christian position, and Cervantes was a profoundly Christian writer.
Cervantes and the humanists had developed a system of parallel truths whose uneasy if not impossible convergence was prudently left untested. Church dogma and human knowledge as that achieved by the new thinkers coexisted in his writings.
It was also an ethics and aesthetics for the genre he virtually created single-handedly: the modern novel. Perhaps the deepest irony is embodied in the mad hero. In the physical sense this is evident in all the violence, in all the blows and injuries he sustains as he clashes with the real world. These are made in the name of a higher kind of moral than the one prevailing in the fallen world through which he travels. The ambiguous outcome of many adventures, however, can lead the reader to question who is right: the deranged hero or those who pummel the hero?
The contrast and ambiguity are often put squarely before the reader, asking him to make a judgment and in the process have a hard look at himself and his own sanity. The disparity between the two could not be sharper.
One of the most moving qualities of Don Quixote is that Sancho is not portrayed with condescension or reduced to his gluttony, as Falstaff sometimes is in Shakespeare. The squire is endowed with natural reason, a medieval concept of unsuspecting revolutionary repercussions.
Sancho Introduction 9 embodies the common man who will eventually begin to be the master of his destiny after the Enlightenment. If the narrator, the knight, and his squire are memorable and enduring creations, Dulcinea is the most remarkable character in the novel, one who seems to touch the very limits of the literary imagination. She has no lines in the book. Hence, Dulcinea is a projection of his quest to be a knight like those he has read about in romances of chivalry: She is to be an incomparable beauty, cruel in her aloofness.
Dulcinea will be the one to whom he will dedicate all of his efforts without much hope of ever deserving her love. Because Don Quixote is commonly thought of as one book, rarely is it taken into account that it is two novels. Parts I and II share the principal characters, of course, but the ten years separating them have not elapsed in vain.
Sancho also made his appearance and the interplay between the two characters was set in motion. Part I also included a number of interpolated stories, some intertwined with the actions of the two protagonists, others not. The end comes when the hero is nabbed by the authorities and turned over to his neighbors who return him home. There are many memorable adventures, including the one with the windmills, that have become emblematic of the book.
Most of these take place on the road, under the relentless Castilian sun. Much of part II takes place indoors. This sets the tone. Because characters like the Duke and Duchess know Don Quijote and Sancho as protagonists of the novel, they stage pranks to have them act accordingly. Because of all this, part II is extremely complicated though, responding to criticisms of part I, Cervantes eliminated the interpolated stories.
It is baroque. A biting critique of Spanish society, part II portrays the upper classes as idle, frivolous, and even cruel. They use Don Quijote and Sancho for their entertainment and spend money in pleasures beyond what they can afford. The Duke, for instance, is often bailed out of debt by loans from a rich peasant within his domain.
The wealthy and powerful in Barcelona are on friendly terms with brigand Roque Guinart. His daughter, born and raised a Christian, has been sent to Morocco with her mother, where they are treated as foreigners by their presumed Muslim brethren.
An exemption is requested from the authorities in Madrid but there is little hope that it will be granted, certainly not expeditiously. Part II is pessimistic with regard to the future of Spain, painting a black picture of the country under the latter Hapsburgs. The novel does not end with his arrest but with his death, not as Don Quijote but as Alonso Quijano.
With all illusions gone, Don Quijote reverts back to his old self, renounces his life of folly and dies a Christian death, hoping for salvation in an after world. Thomas Shelton translated the book into English before part II appeared, and French translations and adaptations soon followed. By then the book had won a prominent position both in Spain and throughout Europe and the Americas.
Don Quixote was by then and until now has been at the core of programs of study in schools and universities. It provides a reliable portrait of Cervantes and his times as well as the social and literary context in which his works were created. It is futile to attempt to fully understand genius. A sense of not belonging and its ensuing ironic posture were not necessarily the dubious privilege of a single social group.
Mimesis is one of the greatest works of literary criticism ever. Auerbach moves from the minute to the general with ease and elegance. He was able to trace how the representation of reality in literature advanced from the Bible and the Greeks through the Middle Ages and shows how the advent and growth of Christianity, with its need to adapt rhetoric to reach the humble, fostered the creation of a literary medium to represent everyday life.
The clash of rhetorical styles, the high and the low, provides the heat in which the vernacular literatures in the various romance languages are forged. There is some validity to this criticism. His monumental contributions to understanding how Spanish developed as a language and how this evolution is inscribed in its literature are beyond dispute. In the play, Bartolo, a rustic, goes insane from reading too many ballads, believes himself to be one of their heroes, is beaten up with his own lance, and is carried to bed to be cared for.
The essay was only available in English in a very poor translation that I have completely recast and refreshed for this volume with the help of my learned colleague Rolena Adorno. The much bandied about Cervantean irony would also issue from this: The author does Introduction 17 not have total control over his creation. I believe that it is because his invention got away from him that Cervantes—mockingly and earnestly at once—does not want to claim authorship.
But a critique from outside them is, it seems to me, more fruitful, even without diminishing the value of his essay.
This is consonant with his view about the creative spirit of nations, at the core of his critical ideology. It is also something that is true of other masterpieces. It can be argued, for instance, that The Divine Comedy originates in an Easter liturgical tradition, and the genesis of literary myths such as Don Juan and Faust from popular sources is undeniable and well known.In he was again, for a short time, in jail at Seville.
This book was also a major success, completing a narrative sequence of as much consequence as the combined Iliad and Odyssey. This work developed substantially the new Picaresque genre, particularly the depiction of criminal life. Important in this regard is the work of associations and other organizations laboring on the spot, many established ad hoc, such as the Accademia del Pizzocchero di Teglio, dedicated to preserving the pizzocchero of the Valtellina.
There is some validity to this criticism.
