Svevo’s mother was an Italian, his father an Austrian.

Svevo, Italo

He was educated in Germany, and on returning to his native Trieste worked as a bank clerk. From he was a partner in an industrial concern which he managed until his death, carefully separating his business from his literary life.

His talent was first discovered by the Irish writer James Joyce, who spent some time in Trieste from onward. Their friendship was mutually fruitful, and the correspondence between the two novelists, Carteggio inedito Italo Svevo-James Joycewas published in It was as a result of the favorable attention it attracted in England and France that Svevo’s masterpiece, La Coscienza di Zeno ; The Confessions of Zeno, came to zwno recognized zno Italy itself as a classic of modern Italian literature.

Partly autobiographical, the book is in effect an extended monologue, self-analytical and deeply introspective, telling the story of a man’s life as he observes it from the outside. A member of a middle-class mercantile family, the hero regards his life as empty of meaning, a succession of failures.


Caught up in dreams and visions and beset by psychological complexes, he becomes a melancholic and ironical spokesman of the absurdity of the human condition. Like the people in similar condition with whom he comes fonscincia contact, he finds life full of irremediable disappointments.

Svevo’s own rejection of the unremitting flow of life is thus projected onto his hero.

This thesis appeared in the late s in an article by Giacomo Debenedetti, one of the zebo Italian literary critics of the last century a Jew himselfconscinca since then it has been proposed many times in several different versions.

According to Debenedetti, Svevo symbolically describes in his works the uneasiness of the emancipated Jew not completely belonging to European Christian society, and his approach to Judaism is in some way close to the negative attitude of the Jewish-born philosopher Otto Weininger.

Svevo’s colloquial style was something of an innovation in Italian writing. His cosmopolitan background and education undoubtedly contributed to his unique position in his country’s literature. Immediately before and after his death in an automobile accident some of his short novellas were published.
