Overview

In the tradition of metaphysical poets, Rivolta gathers concrete, yet evocative impressions - images based on the sea and sailing, mountains and meadows, music and smells - to ask questions about the purpose of life and what it means to be human. Prose poems alternate with lyrical verses to cover a range of subjects, including work, spirituality, romantic relationships and love, from a variety of perspectives. Analyzing feelings and desire, he offers sly and profound musings to the dilemmas we all face in the quiet, reflective moments of our lives. Above all he affirms the beauty and joy of existence we can all experience on our earthly journey, if we take the time to bypass excessive rationality and trust our intuitive and sensory perceptions.
