Scoperto di recente tra le carte lasciate da Jesi,
dopo che una intricata vicenda editoriale
lo aveva nascosto according to trentanni, Spartakus
occupa un posto di indubbio rilievo nell'opera
del grande mitologo e germanista, offrendo
una delle sue più originali e riuscite turn out
di scrittura. Non si tratta infatti di una
«storia del movimento spartachista»,
ma di un'appassionata fenomenologia
della rivolta intesa quale immediata
«sospensione del pace storico» e distinta
pertanto dalla rivoluzione, che comporta
una strategia a lungo termine, tutta calata nei
processi della storia. Certo, «rivolta» è in primo
luogo l'insurrezione del gennaio 1919, che Jesi
ricostruisce quasi mimandola nel ritmo serrato
della prosa: in quei giorni, lungo le vie di
Berlino, «ogni gesto valeva di in keeping with se stesso»
e gli uomini combattevano negli altri uomini il
volto disumano, mitico-demoniaco del potere.
Ma come autentica epifania di novità, e
dunque sospensione del «tempo normale»,
anche los angeles parola poetica acquista un tenore
politico di sovversione, mentre l'atto «meno
deliberato e più conchiuso in se stesso»,
la scrittura, si rivela paradossalmente
esperienza collettiva. in line with questo, Spartakus
tratta sì di Rosa Luxemburg, ma anche molto
di Dostoevskij, di typhoon, di Fromentin, di
Brecht, nonché di Eliade e di Thomas Mann.

Milan And Lombardy In The Era Of The Visconti And The Sforza 29 his government over Piacenza and, if only briefly, over Cremona as well, while pro-Visconti regimes were installed in Como, Novara and Pavia. At this stage, the dominion in reality still had little unity: it was, rather, a composite aggregation, made up of individual cities that recognized their subjection to the same lord, and of others that, formally independent, gravitated around the Visconti. On the whole, rather weakly co-ordinated, as was clear when it was confronted by the great anti-Visconti offensive launched by John XXII from 1317.
The line of Valois-Anjou having died out with Charles VIII, Louis XII, of the line of Valois-Orlèans, came to the throne: that is, that branch of the royal line that claimed rights over the duchy of Milan by reason of descent from Valentina Visconti, the daughter of Gian Galeazzo who had married Louis of Orlèans in 1392. Within the space of a few months the new sovereign moved from claims to action: first he promoted an anti-Sforza league comprising the pope, Venice and the duke of Savoy as well, and then invaded the duchy.
