"The work of Giorgio Caproni has been translated into French, German, and Chinese, among others, but this collection is his first book-length English publication. His works are finely tuned to modern man's preoccupations with existence in a world deprived of certainties (for example, the existence or inexistence of God). Most are touched by experiences such as the Second World War and its atrocities, the Resistance Movement, or the death of loved ones, events that represent the conviction of a subject that will do its best to survive all adversity, uncompromised" -- from the Introduction by Pasquale Verdicchio

Lawrence Ferlinghetti nasce nel 1919 a Yonkers, New York, da padre italiano e madre di origini franco-portoghesi. È poeta, romanziere, traduttore, editore, pittore, autore di teatro e drammi radiofonici. Anima della San Francisco Renaissance, che negli anni 50 stravolge le convenzioni letterarie e sociali del tempo, Ferlinghetti è da allora protagonista di una intensa attività creativa, mai disgiunta da una profonda attenzione a tematiche politiche, sociali ed ecologiche. Fondatore assieme a Pete D. Martin della famosa City Lights Bookstore, Ferlinghetti ha sempre compiuto scelte editoriali coraggiose, come la pubblicazione di “Urlo” di Allen Ginsberg, vero manifesto della beat generation, per la quale viene accusato di vendita e distribuzione di materiale osceno: il noto processo del 1956 termina con una storica vittoria legale contro la censura. Negli anni ha partecipato a numerosi festival e reading di poesia, tra i quali quelli storici alla Royal Albert Hall di Londra (1965), a Castelporziano (1978), ad Amsterdam (1981), dimostrandosi viaggiatore instancabile e artista sempre attento alla difesa degli ultimi e del pianeta. Ha esposto le proprie opere pittoriche in diversi musei e gallerie sia negli Stati Uniti che in Europa. Insignito nel 1998 del titolo di primo Poeta Laureato della città di San Francisco, Ferlinghetti ha ricevuto svariati riconoscimenti, tra cui recentemente quello di Commendatore al merito della Repubblica Italiana. Il suo “A Coney Island of the Mind” tradotto in decine di lingue, è tra i libri di poesia più letti al mondo con oltre un milione di copie stampate.
