Über diesen Titel


Edoardo Sanguineti (1930 - 2010) was born in Genoa where he was for many years Professor of Italian Literature. His many awards and distinctions include the prestigious Premio Campiello for lifetime achievement. The most important poet of the avant-garde Gruppo 63 movement (which included Umberto Eco and Giorgio Manganelli), Sanguneti was also the translator of poetry by Joyce, Shakespeare, Brecht and a number of Latin and Greek writers. In addition to poems he wrote two novels, Capriccio Italiano / Italian Caprice (1963), and Il Giuoco dell'Oca / Snakes and Ladders (1967), as well as a number of plays; but it is as the author of playful, even exuberantly inventive poems that he is best known. Libretto was first published in 1998 and was his first book-length appearance in the English language.

From Kirkus Reviews:

LIBRETTO ($14.95 paperback original; Jul.; 48 pp.; 1-901233-20-0): Born in 1930 in Genoa, where hes currently a professor of Italian literature, Sanguineti is, according to Daly, very highly regarded in Italy, even though this is his first book translated into English. What good fortune for Sanguineti that hes found an Irishman to render his multilingual wordplay into language reminiscent of James Joyce. Sanguinetis long-line poems, printed sideways on the page and facing the original Italian all end with colons, looking forward to the next postmodern adventure in these personal narratives of trips throughout Europe. Daly manages to preserve some of the wild internal rhymes and rhythms of Sanguinetis cascading and slangy sentences. The poets polyglot wit, with its complex punning, is difficult in any language, and despite the occasional wee and lassie of Daly, he marvelously conveys the millennial chaos and kicks of Sanguinetis globe-hopping. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.
