Does anyone see this a bit disturbing? Despite of how well is written I just can’t get pass the incestuous dynamic. See 2 questions about Il moravua. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Ayn Rand’s writing is probably the only thing that I have read and found more annoying than Contempt.
Moravia’s idea had such great potential.
An existential, psychological drama, doesn’t it sound promising? In fact, Moravia did succeed in portraying the obsessive, supremely self-centered and over-analytic narrator, Riccardo Molteni, pretty well.
He lets the reader discover the unreliability of the narrator and see through his wrong judgements slowly during the disprexzo of the novel.

But being ins Ayn Rand’s writing is probably the only thing that I have read and found more annoying than Contempt. But being inside the head of this obsessive narrator gets irritating very soon He is so full of negativity. On the contrary, Molteni’s narration is excruciatingly painful to read and insufferably repetitive.
Now bring in a director who incessantly analyzes Ulysses from Odysseyrepeat the phrases from the previous part whenever the director shuts up and that’s another pages. The narrator sometimes gets stuck at one thought and writes an entire page saying the same thing several times. At times he thinks way too slowly. He devotes one full page to Emilia discussing the dinner menu with the maid, and another page analyzing that scene.
Not just that the thoughts are repeated, they are expressed in the same manner, using the same words over and over again.
May be it is the translator’s fault, but I do not want to read the same phrase four times in a single paragraph. This still could have been tolerable if the prose weren’t so lifeless and dry. It is not touching, it is no fun to read, it is not informative or thought-provoking, why read it? View all 27 comments. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Was this supposed to be a modern take on The Odyssey? If you removed the repeated discussions about Ulysses and Penelope, the book would have been morabia of pages. I think I could rewrite this disrezzo in a few mravia We were married for 2 years when my wife stopped loving me.
Il disprezzo – Wikipedia
I don’t understand why. I kno Thank goodness this book wasn’t more than pages. She is the Penelope to my Ulysses.
She despised me because she thought that I was wanting her to have an affair with my boss to further my career all because he made an advance on her! I don’t get why there are so many 4 and 5 star ratings on this novel. Does anyone have an aspirin? I have a headache. The first quarter of the book is simply awful. Annoying repetitions and unnecessarily elongated sentences with so many commas.
But then it gets a little better and the book has its moments. But I can’t say if it’s really so or you just get used to the writing. I am tired of the word ‘repugnance’ now. View all 5 comments. After reading The Empty Canvas this summer, the book hat left me thinking about it for weeks, I was hooked on Alberto Moravia.
The Contempt has been on New York Book Review list in top ten for months with such a good review so I was really looking forward to reading it.
The book started well, in typical Moravia style, very philosophical with few very deep sentences. As the story progressed, it turned into almost comical mood how the.
Main character disprezz himself as a victim when, actually, tortur After reading The Empty Canvas this summer, the book hat left me thinking about it for weeks, I was hooked on Alberto Moravia.
Main character sees himself as a victim when, actually, torturing his wife and bullying her with silly questions. The only interesting point in the book was part about Ulysses and Penelope and the theory why did he.
Stay in war for long 10 years. All in all, very dissapointing. I really dont know who are these people who have 4 star to this book I havent read more depressing and annoying book than Contempt The name is just apt for the book and everyone is disrespecting everyone else in the book The main character’s unwarranted fretting over the potential breakdown of his marriage, finally causes it to do just that. Up to a point the author does a good job at depicting this obsession, but at the cost of having bored me in the process by constant repetition.
Not sure I would recommend, feels too dated. I would have given it a higher rating, but the protagonist really annoyed me with his self-centeredness and insistence on talking about the same thing over and over. I am not surprised in the least that the wife wanted out Somewhat enjoyable but highly irritating due to the protagonist’s obsessive but clueless attention to detail.
Very heavy on 60s gender stereotyping.
The ending felt like a copout and waste of time. Story about love and hate relationship. Can be read as a simple and easy exercise to understand different kind of people and their thinking habits.
