Croce senza amore by Heinrich Böll

By Heinrich Böll

Pubblicato in Germania solo nel 2002, Croce senza amore è il primo romanzo di Heinrich Böll, scritto nel 1947. los angeles vicenda narrata segue i destini dei Bachem, una famiglia borghese e cattolica di Colonia, negli anni che vanno dall'ascesa di Hitler alla disfatta del nazismo. I Bachem sono tragicamente divisi dalla nuova realtà: Christoph e sua madre identificano fin dall'inizio il male in Hitler, mentre il secondogenito Hans si iscrive di getto al partito. Farà così carriera rompendo vincoli di sangue e d'amicizia, mentre il fratello verrà addestrato all'odioso mestiere del soldato e mandato a esercitarlo in una guerra che aborrisce. Straordinaria riscoperta letteraria, Croce senza amore testimonia inequivocabilmente come Böll fosse fin dagli esordi il grande scrittore morale destinato a vincere il Nobel: antinazista, antimilitarista, interprete di una fede che si realizza nell'esercizio intransigente dell'amore in step with il prossimo, quell'amore che rende incompatibili l. a. croce cristiana e quella nazista.

When he entered Les Bertaux his horse took fright, and shied violently. It was a prosperous-looking farm. Through the open half-doors of the stables you could see huge draught horses placidly feeding from brand-new mangers. A stream of vapour arose from the big manureheap that flanked the buildings, and, standing out among the hens and turkeys, five or six peacocks––that luxury of Pays de Caux farmyards––were pecking for food. The sheep-run was long and the barn tall, with walls as smooth as the back of your hand.

During the visits Charles made to the Madame Bovary  farm they talked about the preparations for the wedding, wondering which room they’d use for the wedding feast, how many courses they’d have, and what particular dishes they’d serve.
