Scoperto di recente tra le carte lasciate da Jesi,
dopo che una intricata vicenda editoriale
lo aveva nascosto consistent with 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 according to 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 l. a. 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 step with questo, Spartakus
tratta sì di Rosa Luxemburg, ma anche molto
di Dostoevskij, di hurricane, di Fromentin, di
Brecht, nonché di Eliade e di Thomas Mann.

Cantorum ^ Schola The enclosure for the This mansion belonged to a man named Clemens, perhaps a relative of an early Christian martyr and of St Clement, or perhaps a freed man of Jewish birth. The 4th-century church was built precisely over the 1st-century site. * Cosmatesque Pavement The restored frescoes (above) in the Upper Church by the 15thcentury Florentine artist Masolino show vibrant scenes from the life of St Catherine of Alexandria. These provide one of the few opportunities in Rome to appreciate the painting of the early Florentine Renaissance.
