about this item

Poetry. Translated from the Italian by Nehemiah H. Brown. Bilingual Italian-English. "I try to rebuild from the rubble a building that has no foundation (Thalia), but is populated by geckos (lizards) and looks to the Cosmos as to a new resource." So writes the author Giuseppe Talia in his imaginative introduction. Thalia is one of the nine muses of ancient Greece, the goddess of song and dance, the inspirer of idyllic poetry. This is a book that celebrates the southern climes of Italy, the land of Calabria, all nature, all human joys and emotions, all beauty."Here the vines of squeezingSweet air sunset squelchesRues of cliff funnel bitterTurf alpaca spade velvetSpongy flesh of the scalpFat fruit without more colorGenital stem of aphids and mosquitoesPhalanges as butter and keys mixedHere the jug broke vegetables bumpedEyelid crack dry dropMood in coarse wirySpices cirrus taproots humanThe blue layer of beardlessHeaps of stars scattered perilousPanegyrics written in black oilRefectory table to eat with two millstones."
