About this product
- DescriptionFirst published in 1955, Pasolini's masterpiece caused such public outrage that he was charged with obscenity and the book banned. Set in Rome's poverty-stricken neighbourhoods during the post-war years, it tells the story of a group of adolescents who live hand-to-mouth, their days filled with odd jobs, petty crime and prostitution, their hunger growing as Italy begins to enjoy a period of ecomic growth and unprecedented change.
- Author BiographyPier Paolo Pasolini was born in 1922. He was an Italian film director, poet, writer, and intellectual. Throughout his life he exhibited extraordinary cultural versatility and became a highly controversial figure in the process. While his work remains controversial, since his death in 1975, Pasolini has come to be seen as a visionary thinker and a major figure in italian literature and art. American literary critic Harold Bloom considered Pasolini to be a major 20th-century poet and included his works in his collection of the Western Canon.
