Italian Poetry Translation and Reading

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 - 5:30pm
University of Arizona Poetry Center

Join us for a discussion on the making of Those Who from Afar Look Like Flies, an anthology that aims to provide an organic profile of the evolution of Italian poetry after World War II. The book’s editors Giuseppe Cavatorta, UA Associate Professor of Italian, and Luigi Ballerini, Professor Emeritus of Italian at UCLA, will talk about the creation of the anthology that features such poets as Pasolini, Pagliarani, Rosselli, Sanguineti, Zanzotto, Villa and Cacciatore. UA Creative Writing faculty Ander Monson and Susan Briante will discuss the relationship between poetics, poetry, and translation. Included in the volume are 24 images by visual poet Magdalo Mussio, which will be displayed. The event will conclude with a dual-language poetry reading of selections from the anthology.
