Pier Paolo Pasolini, Poems
Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975), who is best known in this country as an inspired filmmaker, was also the most outspoken and original Italian writer of his generation, the author of distinguished and controversial novels and plays, political and literary criticism, and, above all, poetry. His poems are widely considered the most important contribution to Italian literature since Montale and, along with the work of Brecht and Neruda, represent the most powerful political poetry of the century. This dual-language book presents his major poems as well as an autobiographical essay, which together make for an outstanding introduction to Pasolini's exceptional gifts as a poet. Book jacket.

A nice collection of works from this Italian, queer, Marxist film-maker and poet. Definitely a departure from 'Salo, or 120 Days in Sodom', but still attempting to address questions about emotions and struggle in the master-slave dialectic. Read full review
