9780141181028: Poems: Montale (Penguin Modern Classics)

Eugenio Montale received many honours, including the Nobel Prize in 1975. His lyrical, mysterious poems abound in natural images - Liguria's sea-coast, golden sunflowers, scolding blackbirds and sun-scorched landscapes. Full of mythological and literary resonance, they poignantly explore the connection between the individual, nature and the divine. This volume draws on Montale's four major collections: "Cuttlefish Bones", "The Occasion", "The Storm and Other Things" and "Satura", as well as later work. It brings together translations, adaptations and homages by, among others, Samuel Beckett, Anthony Burgess, Geoffrey Hill, Robert Lowell, Jamie McKendrick, Edwin Morgan and Jeremy Reed.

About the Author:

The Italian poet Eugenio Montale (1896-1981) is best known for the intense lyrical vision of his first three collections of poetry: Ossi di seppia (1925), Le Occasioni (1939) and La bufera e altro (1956). In Satura (1971) a new disillusioned voice emerged, commenting ironically on post-war Italian society and debunking his own previous poetic myths. He won the 1975 Nobel Prize for literature. Harry Thomas lives in Massachusetts and has edited Thomas Hardy's poetry for Penguin.
