Regular price €30.00 Sale price €5.00

A beautifully translated selection of poems by one of the greatest Italian poets of the twentieth century.

This bilingual volume at last brings an extensive and exquisitely translated collection of Saba’s poems to English-speaking readers.

Saba is best known for his Il Canzoniere (The Songbook). Saba chose this simple title to claim his place in the long line of great Mediterranean poets who had used it for their collections.

Includes a translation of Saba's early manifesto, "What Remains for Poets to Do."
