Few books explore nostalgia - that misty feeling labelled only in the 18th century and which has become one of the features of the modern world - like this beautiful and suggestive essay by Barbara Cassin. In it, using the figures of Ulysses, Aeneas and Hannah Arendt, the author analyses the relationship between home or "homeland", exile and mother tongue, as well as the feeling. However, perhaps the greatest contribution of this essential book for all those who feel affected by this "ailment" is its enquiry into whether it is possible - and how - to elaborate the link between nostalgia and the native soil (or "patriotism"), to turn it into a different kind of adventure that can lead us to the threshold of a broader and more welcoming way of thinking, of a vision of the world freed from any kind of ascription.
