      Thomas McCarthy - Alessandro Gentili

Songs of Purgatory, by Alessandro Carrera


"This book is made up of five poems and sixteen songs, and it would not exist without Ron Banerjee's translations, which have preserved, whenever it was possible, the rhythm and the rhyme scheme of the original Italian text. Songs and rhymed poetry are supposed to be untranslatable - until you find the right translator, that is, and this book is proof that I did find the right translator. "
