"Andrea Zanzotto's poetics have often been defined as emerging out of Romanticism, yet his work defies the confines of such ?schools? and marks its own path. Working across linguistic realities, Zanzotto exploits the ?living? and ?mobile? traits of words to expand the limits of language. Words are imagination and not simply representation and as such give voice to a constantly fluctuating sense of reality. The poet's intimate relationship with the landscape makes it easy to envision him as a sort of linguistic mountain-goat daring the perilous edges of language as an expression of survival" -- Pasquale Verdicchio.
