Product Description


"An invaluable resource for English-speaking scholars and lovers of modern Italian poetry, one that will certainly make its way into hundreds of libraries, and become a main point of reference for professors and students who will address the fundamental importance of Saba's poetry for many years to come."-Philip Balma, Translation Review -- Philip Balma Translation Review Finalist for the 2010 Lewis Galantiere Award sponsored by the American Translators Association. -- Lewis Galantiere Award American Translators Association "Saba's achievement overflows the boundaries of any single poem, and now with this new translation ... English-speaking readers can at last begin to take the measure of, and perhaps to learn from, this deeply haunting poet."-Rosanna Warren, The New Republic -- Rosanna Warren The New Republic "Handsomely produced... Clearly a labor of love."-Susan Stewart, The Nation -- Susan Stewart The Nation

Decent compilation 28 Mar. 2015
By Jay Mey - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I needed to read some of the material inside for a class. This edition doesn't exactly contain all of the Saba highlights, and I had to seek other texts to find some of the material I needed, but it's a decent compilation and had some of what I was looking for.
