  • آزادی چیزی نیست که آن را به کسی هدیه کنند. می‌توان در یک کشور دیکتاتوری زندگی کرد و آزاد بود. فقط کافی‌ست تا علیه دیکتاتور مبارزه کرد. مردی که با مغز خودش فکر می‌کند آزاد است. مردی که بخاطر آنچه که بر حق می‌داند مبارزه می‌کند آزاد است. برعکس می‌توان در آزادترین کشورها زندگی ک [...]


  • کتاب نان و شراب را می‌توان کتابی «اتوبیوگرافیک» نامید. چراکه سیلونه همانند پیترو سپینا، مبارزی انقلابی است که گرایش‌های عرفانی نیز دارد. داستان‌ در زمانه‌ی مبارزه‌ی مردم ایتالیا با دیکتاتوری موسولینی جریان دارد. نقد کلیسا به‌مثابه نهاد سرسپرده‌ی حکومت دیکتاتوری و زندگ [...]


  • In Fascist Italy, a Socialist man recently returned from exile, in order to evade the law, is disguised as a priest--as an ecclesiastic he will have immunity from persecution-- and lives among the peasants of the Abruzzi. The novel chronicles his adventures, both funny and tragic and we are exposed to the peasantry. We see his growth as a human being. The ending was a shocker! The title could refer to the elements in the Mass or to the common food of the people. Highly recommended and just as cu [...]


  • "کتاب حاوی داستان مهیج و نابی است از زندگی دهقانان فقیر ایتالیا که در آن عادات و رسوم معتقدات خرافی آنها به زبانی ساده و پر طنز و کنایه تشریح شده است. در سراسر کتاب حس انسان دوستی، عواطف بشری و عشق به آزاد اندیشیدن و آزاد زیستن موج می زند. این اثر حماسه ای از مردم ایتالیا است که د [...]


  • I can't fully articulate why I found this book so captivating, but the guilt-ridden lapsed Italian Catholic and insufferable leftist intellectual at war in me are both obsessed with it for completely opposite but probably equally unhealthy reasons. Anyway.In defiance of genre, Silone weaves a heavy tapestry from threads of fable, philosophy, morality play, and political subterfuge. A close, claustrophobic story lurking in the shadows of Mussolini's fascist Italy at the outbreak of the Second Ita [...]


  • مادام که کوه فقیر است از آن ماست، اما همینکه معلوم شد غنی است دولت آن را تصاحب خواهد کرد. دولت یک دست دراز دارد و یک دست کوتاهدست دراز به همه جا میرسد و برای گرفتن است، دست کوتاه برای دادن است ولی فقط به کسانی میرسد که خیلی نزدیکند *******.ما زن ها همه همینطوریم، می خواهیم کمک کنیم و [...]


  • Three and a half stars really for this novel. A bit weird. It is best read as a collection of impressions of life in the countryside early 20th century, under the fascist regime. As such it offers interesting insights in how people lived an thought. Sometimes the difference with the actual state of affairs in Italy is not large I am not clear what the author really wanted to convey as a message. There are a lot of interesting political-philosophical considerations in the novel but the story doe [...]


  • البته حقش سه و نيم هست به نظرم.يه ستاره كم كردم به خاطر اينكه بعضى جاهاى كتاب روحيه و عقايد انقلابى نويسنده زيادى خسته كننده ميشد همينطور ديالوگهاى بين شخصيت هاى كتاب ثقيل بود و خسته كننده.بنظرم اوج كتاب دو فصل اخر بود البته تناقض هاى ذهن نويسنده بين دين و آرمانش رو خيلى خوب در [...]



  • I read this one in 1994 or so, prompted by Silone's associations with postwar French thinkers and the usual rot which attracts pseuds in their early twenties. I recall the crowd scene rather vividly as well as the author's afterward where he recalls encountering soemone reading his book while travelling on a train.


  • انقلاب نیاز انسان است به اینکه دیگر تنها نباشد و دیگر کسی او را به جان انسان دیگری نیندازد،تلاشی است برای باهم بودن و دیگر بیم نداشتن.نیاز به برادری است.


  • A socialist on the run in fascist Italy. Disguised as a priest among the peasants. I liked the religiosity that saturated this view of politics, as the socialist aspires to be a saint and other martyrs suffer their fate at the hands of the government. Particularly vivid on Italy’s war in Africa (we don’t see this war, just the recruitment), with the gathering of voices of those who must or want to be its foot-soldiers, and one anti-war slogan scrawled on a wall is a big event in the plot. A [...]


  • Sometimes man feel that must share his emotions . Le pain et Le Vin is one of the best books that read until now . of course must thank translator . tell to yourself that one of methods of buying book can be according to translator .hope that read this book


  • For some reason I have never been able to determine, the fiction of Italy, Spain, and Portugal have been, as it were, swept under the carpet. Reading Ignazio Silone's Bread and Wine, I think perhaps the reason is that all three are priest-haunted countries that wear their Catholicism on their sleeves. In fact, in Bread and Wine, the hero, one Pietro Spina, a Communist, is disguised as a priest named Father Paolo Spada, who is in hiding among the peasants of his native Abruzzi. In many ways, this [...]


  • This book remi ds me of 'the garden of the finzi continis'. The book is based in italy. Don Paolo, a revolutionary, who hsa changed his name from Spina and changed his identity is on the run. He is hiding from the government, which is intolerant of his ideas. He hides among the poor and tries to learn their thinking about the government. He discusses with them some of the challenges they face at the time. This includes:poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, war etc. This book is deeply philosophical [...]


  • به واسطه خوندن کتاب خاطرات یک مترجم مرحوم محمد قاضی به سمت این کتاب کشیده شدم. کتاب زیبایی بود. یادمه تو دوره ای این کتاب رو میخوندم که امتحانای ترمم بود و من تو خوابگاه دانشگاه شیراز. با خودم قرار گذاشته بودم که 45 دقیقه درس بخونم و 15 دقیقه نان و شراب. اونقدر مست این کتاب شده بودم [...]

  • La vicenda di un giovane comunista in epoca fascista che osa vivere sotto falso nome nelle sue montagne abruzzesi nonostante la polizia sospetti della sua presenza. Molto evidenti riferimenti autobiografici: combattuto tra l'educazione cristiana dell'infanzia e una fede comunista che inizia a traballare cozza con la falsità dei diversi modi di vita del suo tempo.Pensavo di leggere un libro di altri tempi e invece l'autenticità di una coscienza che non accetta compromessi rende universale lo sg [...]


  • سخن گفتن درباره ارزش ادبی و ویژگی‌های فنی این اثر و نویسنده آن، در دایره دانش و صلاحیت من نیست. بنابراین، ترجیح می‌دهم درباره محتوای آن حرف بزنم. داستان نان و شراب، در ظاهر به توصیف ایتالیای دهه‌های ابتدایی تا میانه قرن بیستم ارتباط دارد و آکنده از روایت زندگی انواع آدم‌های [...]


  • I an going on a limb here but this book is very good. Written in 1936 by an anti fascist writer who also had the good sense to break with Stalin in the early 30's. He has been compared to the Italian Orwell. It gets more complicated. It has been recently revealed that he also was a police informer for the fascists, providing information leading to the arrest of many left wing opponents of the regime.Thsi background in mind makes the book very interesting. It is a story of a leftist who returns t [...]


  • I don't know how to characterize this book succinctly. Set in 1930's Italy under Fascism, a revolutionary comes back from exile to try to organize his former compatriots, but because of ill health ends up hiding out in a remote village disguised as a priest. As he had studied in a Catholic school and had thought of joining the priesthood, this role has some resonance for him, but it's also uncomfortable because he has rejected religion. For such a grim setting, with such grinding poverty and fat [...]


  • A book about change, about trying to change, about efforts and exhaustion, about disappointment and hope.This is a book of all, what we believe in. You do not need to share the political view of the heroes to enjoy the book. You could see them as people who believe in change and try to change. A story of real people who still know how to make their own wine and their own bread.


  • ما در اجتماعى زندگى ميكنيم كه در ان جايى براى ازادى مردان نيست.كشيشانى در امانند كه مذهب را به خدمت حكومت و بانك بگمارند و هنرمندانى كه هنر خود رابفروشند و حكيمانى كه با دانش خود سوداگرى كنند. بقيه هم هرقدركه معدود باشند به زندان مى افتند. تبعيد ميشوند و تحت نظر قرار ميگيرند.مش [...]


  • Ignazio Silone, despite of his years in exile in France and Switzerland, due too the fascist dictatorship in Italy, was able to capture the esence of those days. Bread and Wine is a criticism of any form of totalitarism. Full of tension and surprises. Not even the mountains are a good refuge. Bravo Ignazio.


  • فضای غم انگیز و تیره ای دارد.حس خاصی به آدم میده.البته به نظر من از رمانهایی است که تاریخ مصرف دارد و البته تاریخش گذشته



  •    At first blush Bread and Wine seems to be a thoughtfully approving portrait of a young revolutionary, Pietro Spina, in Mussolini's Italy. Spina's life is much like that of the author: staunchly anti-fascist, forced to live in exile, flirtation with communism, eventual embrace of a non-communistic revolutionary socialism. So of course the author would view his principal character with affection. And he does. He draws a stark contrast between the pure resolve of Spina and the "go along to ge [...]


  • (The following review also appears in my blog.) Bread and Wine is Ignazio Silone’s moving 1936 novel of the the Italian socialist resistance to fascism in the early twentieth century. After only recently adapting to the industrial age of the long 19th century, the agrarian proletariat found themselves confronting the challenges of an emerging global age in the years leading up to World War II. It was an era ushered in by disasters: from the natural (including devastating earthquakes in the tee [...]
