Text: English, Italian (translation)From Library Journal:
Nobel laureate Montale is Italy's greatest modern poet. La bufera e altro (1956) is his greatest book. Until recently, English translations of Montale were inadequate, but with Arrowsmith, well-known translator and scholar, we have at last someone capable of dealing with Montale's "dense imaginative difficulty," of rendering Montale's "iridescence." An earlier translation by the fine poet Charles Wright (Field Translation Series 1, 1978), suffers from inaccuracies and from lack of the dual-language format. Finally, in addition to excellent translations, Arrowsmith provides a passionate preface and 65 pages of valuable commentary on individual poems. Highly recommended.
