Description

Focusing on the most recent triad of Italian poetic genius-Umberto Saba, Giuseppe Ungaretti, and Eugenio Montale-Joseph Cary not only presents striking biographical portraits as he facilitates our understanding of their poetry; he also guides us through the first few decades of twentieth-century Italy, a most difficult period in its literary and cultural development.
