Vincenzo Cardarelli (pseudonym of Nazareno Caldarelli, 1887-1959) journalist, poet, and literary critic, led a solitary, dignified existence, from a humble background, through self-taught education and innumerable peregrinations, until his final days in poverty and loneliness. He stood and sought for all that a true artist and intellectual has to stand and seek for: the uncompromising authenticity of art. Until now, with the sole exception of a few poems translated by the great Irish poet Desmond O'Grady in the late 1950's, the work of Vincenzo Cardarelli had remained precluded to the English speaking world and the international audience at large. The publication of this extensive collection will finally disclose the doors to one of the most prominent, yet still relatively unexplored, Italian and European poet of the twentieth century.
The Battle of Königgrätz, also known as the Battle of Sadowa, or Hradec Králové, was the decisive battle of the Austro-Prussian War, in which the Kingdom of Prussia defeated the Austrian Empire. Taking place near Königgrätz (Hradec Králové) and Sadowa (Sadová) in Bohemia on 3 July 1866, it was an example of battlefield concentration, a convergence of multiple units at the same location to trap and/or destroy an enemy force between them.There were more troops on the field of Königgrätz than any other battle, prior to, or after it until the battle of Mukden (20th February-10th March 1905). Even the greatest battle of the century thus far, Leipzig in 1813, also known as the Battle of Nations, in which, on the final day of the battle the troops on both sides numbered, after losses sustained during the previous days fighting, some 420,000 men engaged, still fell short of the 430,000 plus who stood on the field of Königgrätz.Including 55 figures and detailed maps.

A solitary figure in black stood on the stone parapet, watching the lines of blue and gold sky slowly descend toward grey water. Below the fortress walls, grass sloped down to the gentle waves rolling in and breaking on the shingle, as the late day sun lost its battle with gravity and slipped out of sight behind the horizon. The sky began to darken almost imperceptibly as the figure turned and strode toward several slightly smaller figures lined up farther down the catwalk. A bell tolled then, eight peals, the last one escaping across the sea to his left, as he approached the first figure, and drew a small, shiny weapon from his pocket. He placed the weapon against the prisoner's temple and pressed a pin below the barrel.

For half a century the housewives of Pont-l'Eveque had envied Madame Aubain her servant Felicite.For a hundred francs a year, she cooked and did the housework, washed, ironed, mended, harnessed the horse, fattened the poultry, made the butter and remained faithful to her mistress—although the latter was by no means an agreeable person.Madame Aubain had married a comely youth without any money, who died in the beginning of 1809, leaving her with two young children and a number of debts. She sold all her property excepting the farm of Toucques and the farm of Geffosses, the income of which barely amounted to 5,000 francs; then she left her house in Saint-Melaine, and moved into a less pretentious one which had belonged to her ancestors and stood back of the market-place. This house, with its slate-covered roof, was built between a passage-way and a narrow street that led to the river. The interior was so unevenly graded that it caused people to stumble. A narrow hall separated the kitchen from the parlour, where Madame Aubain sat all day in a straw armchair near the window. Eight mahogany chairs stood in a row against the white wainscoting. An old piano, standing beneath a barometer, was covered with a pyramid of old books and boxes. On either side of the yellow marble mantelpiece, in Louis XV. style, stood a tapestry armchair. The clock represented a temple of Vesta; and the whole room smelled musty, as it was on a lower level than the garden.

This meditation journal may help you feel more present in your everyday life by using simple checks at the beginning and end of your day. These check-ins are repeatable and can help you create a new pattern of awareness in ways that are easy to apply.Sample ExcerptThe day is split up into three parts: the beginning, middle, and end. The beginning of the day is about rising from slumber back into our skin. The way we start our day is how it continues until we decide to reflect on it. The middle of the day is running on autopilot from how we started the day. In the middle of the day, many events occur that can throw us off from what we want from our day. These distractions can be the smallest things: from spilling your hot coffee on your shirt on the way to work to being three-minute late for your bus that only comes every forty-five minutes. I like to call the middle of the day the struggle. The end of the day is time for reflection or to continue to run on autopilot from the struggle. During this time, we can ask ourselves questions about the day and see if we like the events that happened. This reflection is easier to do at home but can also be done by taking breaths when something goes wrong. Having a reflective moment during the middle of the day can help us get out of the struggle for some time until we trip again. The day can range from being exhausting to energizing; it all depends on how we feel our day. I believe it is important to keep myself in check when I wake up ...
