Primo Levi was one of the most astonishing voices to emerge from the twentieth century a man who survived one of the ugliest times in history yet who was able to describe his own Auschwitz experience with an unaffected tenderness Levi was a master storyteller but he did not write fairytales These stories are an elegy to the human figures who stood out against the tragic background of Auschwitz the ones in whom I had recognized the will and capacity to react and hence a rudiment of virtue Each centres on an individual who whether it be through a juggling trick a slice of apple or a letter discovers one of the bizarre marginal moments of reprieve br br The English edition includes just one section of the three originally published in Italian under the title Lil t tales from the other two sections have been published in A Tranquil Star, Andato in scena al Teatro Carignano di Torino la sera del novembre nella riduzione dell autore e di un attore professionista Se questo un uomo era interpretato da cinquantatre attori di sette nazionalit diverse guidati dal regista Gianfranco De Bosio in uno spazio scenico di straordinaria e cupa suggestione ideato da Gianni Polidori br br Questo testo conserva intatto il suo vigore morale ed tuttora un bellissimo esempio di teatro storico in cui la storia non solo dei fatti ma anche e prima degli uomini e delle loro coscienze umiliate e offese, With the moral stamina and intellectual poise of a twentieth century Titan this slightly built dutiful unassuming chemist set out systematically to remember the German hell on earth steadfastly to think it through and then to render it comprehensible in lucid unpretentious prose He was profoundly in touch with the minutest workings of the most endearing human events and with the most contemptible What has survived in Levi s writing isn t just his memory of the unbearable but also in i The Periodic Table i and i The Wrench i his delight in what made the world exquisite to him He was himself a magically endearing man the most delicately forceful enchanter I ve ever known Philip Roth, br br i The Periodic Table i is largely a memoir of the years before and after Primo Levi s transportation from his native Italy to Auschwitz as an anti Facist partisan and a Jew br br It recounts in clear precise unfailingly beautiful prose the story of the Piedmontese Jewish community from which Levi came of his years as a student and young chemist at the inception of the Second World War and of his investigations into the nature of the material world As such it provides crucial links and backgrounds both personal and intellectual in the tremendous project of remembrance that is Levi s gift to posterity But far from being a prologue to his experience of the Holocaust Levi s masterpiece represents his most impassioned response to the events that engulfed him br br i The Periodic Table i celebrates the pleasures of love and friendship and the search for meaning and stands as a monument to those things in us that are capable of resisting and enduring in the face of tyranny br br br i From the Hardcover edition i
