Emotions of a Book

Full Product Description

The main purpose of Emotions of a Book is to analyse the relationship between the author, depicted as an artist, and a book presented as a living being gifted with its own personality. This axiom can be extended to any other category of artist: musician, painter, sculptor and so on, in their interaction with their respective working tools or objects. Guido asks if a book, a musical instrument, a paint brush has its own soul, sensitivity, the power to influence, to shape another's will, to make its own decisions? Is it possible that these 'things', these apparently inert objects, can be supplied with an energy to give them their own life? Indeed, it is not only an artist who, when face to face with his working tool, engages in long dialogues with it as if it were a living thing. This happens to anyone used to seeing or dealing with the same things every day: a writing desk, a hammer, a spade or even a computer. Is, then, the process of creativity conditioned by this interaction? Each of us can give his own interpretation and answer. Guido has tried to monitor step by step the inner drama of an author, aware of his talent, but incapable of expressing it for various reasons.
A few of these reasons are personal, such as precarious health, a lack of will and motivation, and another is the fact that the invisible life-blood of a blank book appears with an autonomous life. It expresses its world and its long history with the same human feelings as any person but it also possesses a power which it uses to influence talented authors. This book will appeal to those who enjoy reading about literature, history and culture.
