9780857422286: The Pilgrim's Bowl: (Giorgio Morandi) (The Swiss List)

In The Pilgrim’s Bowl, Swiss poet Philippe Jaccottet meditates on the work of Italian artist Giorgio Morandi and its power to evoke a complexity of emotions and astonishment. Jaccottet examines Morandi’s ascetic still lifes, contrasting his artistic approach to the life philosophies of two authors whom he cherished, Pascal and Leopardi, and reflecting on the few known autobiographical details we know about Morandi. In this small and erudite tome, Jaccottet draws us into the very heart of the artist’s calm and strangely haunting oeuvre.
In his literary criticism, Jaccottet is known for deeply engaging with the work of his fellow poets and tenaciously seeking the essence of their poetics. In this, his only book-length essay devoted to an artist, his critical prose likewise blends empathy, subtle discernment, and a determination to pinpoint, or at least glimpse, the elusive underlying qualities of Morandi's deceptively simple, dull-toned yet mysteriously luminous paintings. The Pilgrim’s Bowl is a remarkably elucidating study based on a profound admiration for and a dialogue with Morandi’s oeuvre.

About the Author:

Philippe Jaccottet is a major Swiss poet and critic, and a translator of works by Homer, Goethe, Hölderlin, Rilke, and Musil. John Taylor is a literary critic and the translator of many books. He is also the author of seven books of stories, short prose, and poetry, the latest of which is If Night is Falling.

Review:

“Words, though imperfect and imprecise, allow Jaccottet to develop and explore his reactions to the artwork of Giorgio Morandi. The author deals in paradox as he attempts to illuminate the power of these paintings when he knows that the paintings themselves hold much more meaning than words could ever do, but he hopes to translate the emotive aspect of this bare and stark art.” (World Literature Today)
