Thomas McCarthy – Alessandro Gentili
Where shall I rest / by what unhealable fate
do the lamps end up coinciding?
Tr. into English by Barbara Carle
Al centro del libro, la poesia su Kythera, immota
e mitica nel suo splendore sovrano: una sosta
di luce e di bellezza gratuita…

Her poetry accompanies us from the singularity
to the unequal harmony of the whole.
… Non è mai stata mia intenzione allontanarmi troppo dalla seducente musica della metrica e delle rime.
The poet is celebrating an infinite passage of the “I” toward hopes and new prospects, a “migration” indeed and a long route courageously taken to “prolong a dream”…

Songs of Purgatory, by Alessandro Carrera:
the most recent book published by Gradiva Publications
"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. "
