The final entry is written in Marchwhen Zeno — left alone in wartime Trieste — had made much money out of speculation and hoarding, but it did not make him feel happy or pleased with life.

Each time, the cigarette fails to truly be the last. Throughout the novel, we learn about his father, his business, his wife, and his tobacco habit.

When he is starting to learn about the business world, he meets his future father-in-law Giovanni Malfenti, an intelligent and successful businessman, whom Zeno admires. For instance, when his father states that Zeno is crazy, Zeno goes to the doctor and gets an official certification that he is sane.

His father is also afraid of death, being very uncomfortable with the drafting of his will. 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 be recognized in Italy itself as a classic of modern Italian literature. His angry father then stands up and accidentally slaps Zeno in the face before dying.

Zeno first writes about his cigarette addiction and cites the first times he smoked. He spends his time visiting doctors, looking for a cure to his imagined sickness. Svevo, Confessions of Zeno7—25; M.


Guido and Ada’s marriage begins to crumble as does Ada’s health and beauty. He was educated in Germany, and on returning to his native Trieste worked as a bank clerk. The novel was self-published in Zeno goes on to relate the business partnership between him and Guido. Voghera, Gli anni della psicanalisi45—51 and passim; H. Not a single ezno is able to treat him. Carla misrepresents Ada as Zeno’s wife, and moved by her beauty and sadness, breaks off the affair. Maier, Profilo della critica su Italo Svevo ; E.


Very soon, the couples get married and Zeno starts to realize that he can love Augusta.

Guido starts playing on the Bourse stock exchange and loses even more money. Zeno deceives Carla and causes her to meet Ada instead.

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. This deviation from natural selection causes more sickness and weakness in conscincai.

Immediately before and after his death in an automobile accident some of his short novellas were published. His cosmopolitan background and education undoubtedly contributed to his unique position in his country’s literature.
