Pavese's poems may not have altered the manner in which poetry was written in his time, but his subjects are simply the men and women of his day who struggled between political philosophies, between love of leisure and need for work, between the glorification of the countryside and the drama of the cities, and between the solitary life and the desperate need for pairing. His words have a beauty of rhythm that only a fine translator could capture: Brock does this so well.
Even the air insists that that day won't return.
The deserted window drinks in the cold
and the sky. It's useless to open one's throat
to breathe the old way, as anyone knows
who's left stunned but alive. It's finished, the night
of dreams and regrets. But that day won't return.'
Enter Pavese's world and share it with those who love the finest of poetry. This is a wondrous volume of magnificent works. Grady Harp, November 06
