Sep 30, Alan rated it really liked it Shelves: A couple years ago, I read Lavorare Stanca in Italian, and translated maybe six of the poems while listening to my wife at her cello lessons in Providence, Cesre. The heart of the book takes place in a country town; part of its curse seems to be the Italian lavorarw of anything but a real city.

I found the speaker desolate, modern for sure. View all 3 comments. Tra le mie preferite: Mas basta apoiar-se contra a esquina que o vento de chofre arrefece. Solamente girarle, le piazze e le strade sono vuote. Bisogna fermare una donna e parlarle e deciderla a vivere insieme. Ceare, uno parla da solo.

Mar 01, Laurence Li rated it it was amazing. Da Il mestiere di poeta: Le donne non fumano e non bevono, sanno soltanto fermarsi nel sole e riceverlo tiepido addosso, come fossero frutta [ Interessante Ceszre Il mestiere di poeta: Interessante anche guardare alla presenza del femminile nella raccolta.

cesarw Mi sembra come T. Eliot, magari, della solitudine, della lavkrare, etc. Poesia spontanea, narrativa, che parla per immagini. Sono rievocate visioni di Torino, della collina, delle sue genti in quegli anni, capaci di rievocare in me ricordi, sensazioni del passato, e per questo tanto emotivamente coinvolgenti cesars dover essere centellinate con cura.

Spettacolari i testi poetici che proprio per la loro natura discorsiva e non ermetica possono essere apprezzati facilmente anche da chi come me non si intende di poesia. Infine per una che dipinge per mestiere il fatto che Poesia spontanea, narrativa, che parla per immagini.
