Lucio Mariani is known throughout Europe as one of Italy’s most important contemporary writers. Echoes of Memory presents for the first time in English the full range of his poetry. His elegant and wonderfully subtle poems develop through assonance and spare imagery, drawing on classical allusions without leaving the contemporary space. Whether because of their diamond-sharp incisiveness or their swirling musicality, these poems hit home, producing deeply felt revelations. As critic Emilio Zucchi has written, "In Mariani one finds a poetry of the word as bread, bread broken and shared, kneaded from the idea that truth must, must, must exist in the form of a common language." These exquisite translations by Anthony Molino are drawn from over three decades of work and are presented facing the original Italian.
