Lucio Mariani is kwn throughout Europe as one of Italy's most important contemporary writers. Echoes of Memory presents for the first time in English the full range of his poetry. His elegant and wonderfully subtle poems develop through assonance and spare imagery, drawing on classical allusions without leaving the contemporary space. Whether because of their diamond-sharp incisiveness or their swirling musicality, these poems hit home, producing deeply felt revelations. As critic Emilio Zucchi has written, In Mariani one finds a poetry of the word as bread, bread broken and shared, kneaded from the idea that truth must, must, must exist in the form of a common language. These exquisite translations by Anthony Moli are drawn from over three decades of work and are presented facing the original Italian.
Lucio Mariani is the author of eight volumes of poetry including the recent Qualche Notizia del Tempo (Some News of Time, 2001), as well as a volume of essays, a collection of short stories, and translations of works by Cesar Vallejo, Tristan Corbiere and Yves Bonnefoy. Anthony Molino's published translations include the award-winning The Contagion of Matter (2000), by Valerio Magrelli. Thomas Harrison is Professor of Italian at the University of California, Los Angeles.
