Book Description

June 28 2004
Italy has produced some of the most inventive and controversial poetry of the past one hundred years. In this new anthology, all the major Italian poets of the early part of the century are well represented - Montale, Ungaretti, Saba, Quasimodo and D'annunzio among them - poets who have filtered through to the English speaking world, and are already influential and appreciated. But many of their contemporaries from the mid-century and later are far less known - and deserve to be known - and Jamie McKendrick turns the light to them as well, including the work of Sereni, Passolini, Bertolucci and many others. 20th-Century Italian Poems is a stimulating sift through the key poets and poems of this fascinating period in European literature.

4.0 out of 5 stars 20th-Century Italian Poems, March 3 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
James McKendrick' s knowledge of Italian literature and culture is profound, as is his love and respect, this he wants to share with us, to give an impression of the depth and complexity of Italian poetry in the twentieth century. Although this is not a Bilingual edition, which probably would improve it, would allow comparison with the original poems, but this is a minor foible, and one unrelated to me as I read no Italian.
