Inhaltsangabe: A masterpiece of twentieth-century Italian poetry, Halcyon inscribed the landscape of Tuscany with the memories and emotion of the time d'Annunzio himself spent there with the famous actress Eleanora Duse. No less brilliant for his narcissism, this poet, dramatist, and sometimes politician was larger than life, and his broad talent shines through in this carefully organized set of lyrics.

Cover design: Stephen Raw. Typeset in Palatino. Halcyon is a carefully organized sequence of 88 lyrics, that must be read as a whole: as an idyll which does not exclude violence and savagery, 'sometimes serene / as the firmament, / as hot as the hot vein / of the adolescent.' The scene is set in the summer in that part of Tuscany which lies between Florence and the Tyrrhenian Sea, where d'Annunzio spent some time with Eleonora Duse. 263 pag. Size: 21,5cmx13,5cm.
