About this product
- DescriptionSensual and glimmering, Lorenzo Chiera's elliptical fragments evoke nights of bawdy excess in Trastevere ( City made of Roman ruins .../ what a whorehouse! ), translated here by one of the most rewned poets of our time. In his preface, Lawrence Ferlinghetti describes the experience of reading Chiera for the first time: We soon realize we are in the presence of a savage erotic consciousness, as if the lust-driven senses were suddenly awakened out of a hoary sleep of a thousand years, a youth shaken awake by a rude medieval hand, senses still reeling, drunk in the hold of some slave ship, t kwing night from day r sight from sound, the eye and the ear and the se confounding each other, t yet kwing which function each was to take up in the quivering dawn.
