A collection of seemingly disparate narrative fragments, the short accounts in this book do share one common element: there appears in each of them, in a casual or secondary way, a lark—a symbol of harmony and the understanding between man and nature. In the first story, the lark struggles to adapt to the world of men, but by the last, man calls to the lark to give himself over to the bird. Taken as a whole, the compendium could be considered a novel about Siena and the Tuscan countryside imbued throughout with Tozzi’s profound respect for nature, both urban and rural.


Una colección de fragmentos narrativos al parecer dispares, los relatos en este libro tienen una sola cosa en común: en todos ellos aparece, de forma casual o secundaria, una alondra—símbolo de la armonía y del acuerdo entre hombres y naturaleza. El primer fragmento describe la dificultad de la alondra para adaptarse al mundo dominado por el hombre, pero por el último, el hombre llama a la alondra para entregarse a ella. El conjunto podría definirse como una novela de Siena y de los campos de Toscana, imbuido siempre por el respeto de Tozzi por la naturaleza, tanto urbana como rural.
