After having read Primo Levi heap glowing praise on Carlo Levi I thought it really was time to search out a good starting point for his works As Christ Stopped at Eboli got such warm praise from the other readers here I thought I really should begin with thisThis book is a fascinating if at times slightly paternalistic insight into peasant Italy under the Fascist dictatorship of Mussolini It gives us a glimpse of an older Italy which no longer exists where the feudal classes were still in control and the influence of American expatriates had not brought about any change in Italy s social balanceOne reader s comments about Anarcho Syndicalism drew me to compare it with Homage To Catalonia peasants in Feudal Spain as opposed to peasants in Feudal Italy but I found Orwell s descriptions to be far less sympathetic far patronising and far obviously from the perspective of an outsiderCarlo Levi s book is very enjoyable beautifully written and from the warmth of his warts and all descriptions it is obvious that he became a part of the community in which he lived for the years of his political exileA truly admirable book and an enjoyable read

    Ebook Christ Stopped at Eboli (Penguin Modern Classics) BY Carlo Levi – vivaldirestaurant.co.za Re read this recently prior to a visit to Matera in Basilicata where Levi was exiled as a political dissident by Mussolini It is a brilliant book in its analysis and descriptive power It is sympathetic to an impoverished peasant society without ever becoming sentimental or patronising A great book and necessary reading even now
