Oceano mare by Alessandro Baricco

By Alessandro Baricco

Oceano mare racconta del naufragio di una fregata della marina francese, molto pace fa, in un oceano. Gli uomini a bordo cercheranno di salvarsi su una zattera. Sul mare si incontreranno le vicende di strani personaggi. Come il professore Bartleboom che cerca di stabilire dove finisce il mare, o il pittore Plasson che dipinge solo con acqua marina, e tanti altri individui in cerca di sé, sospesi sul bordo dell’oceano, col destino segnato dal mare. E sul mare si affaccia anche l. a. locanda Almayer, dove le tante storie confluiscono. Usando il mare come metafora esistenziale, Baricco narra dei suoi surreali personaggi, spaziando in vari registri stilistici, con una scrittura suggestiva, immaginifica e musicale.“Sabbia a perdita d’occhio, tra le ultime colline e il mare – il mare – nell’aria fredda di un pomeriggio quasi passato, e benedetto dal vento che sempre soffia da nord. los angeles spiaggia. E il mare.Potrebbe essere los angeles perfezione – immagine in step with occhi divini – mondo che accade e basta, il muto esistere di acqua e terra, opera finita ed esatta, verità – verità – ma ancora una volta è il salvifico granello dell’uomo che inceppa il meccanismo di quel paradiso, un’inezia che basta da sola a sospendere tutto il grande apparato di inesorabile verità, una cosa da nulla, ma piantata nella sabbia, impercettibile strappo nella superficie di quella santa icona, minuscola eccezione posatasi sulla perfezione della sabbia sterminata.”
