Salvatore Di Marco is regarded as one of the most important living poets writing in Sicilian, a separate language from Italian. He has written at least eight books of poetry and is a prolific critic and essayist on Sicilian poetry as well as dialect poetry in Italy.Review:
It was high time that his work (Di Marco's) crossed the boundaries of Sicily and landed on this side of the Atlantic. Thanks to Gaetano Cipolla who edited and translated the work and Florence Russo who wrote the preface, English speakers can now become acquainted with Di Marco's poetry. --Journal of Italian Translation, vol VII, Spring 2012, p. 310.

Book Description Legas, Mineola, 2012. Softcover. Book Condition: New. 209 pages. Softcover. New book. POETRY. Salvatore Di Marco is a well-known poet, critic, and writer who has devoted a lifetime to Sicilian poetry. He has written many monographs on such poets and writers as Alessio Di Giovanni, Ignazio Buttitta, and Francesco Lanza, to name a few. As the founder of the Rivista italiana di letteratura dialettale and the Giornale di poesia siciliana, he had been in the forefront of dialect poetry in Italy. This anthology includes five volumes originally published separately in Sicilian plus several other poems pulished in Arba Sicula. The original volumes are L'acchianata di l'aciddara, Quaranta, Epigrafie siciliane, La ballata di la morti, and Cu rimita menti. This volume is therefore a comprehensive, though not exhaustive, collection of Di Marco's eclectic poetry, translated into English verse for the first time by Gaetano Cipolla.
