Selected Poemsby Eugenio Montale, Jonathan Galassi (Translator), Charles Wright (Translator), David Young (Translator)
Montale’s poems range from daily life through history and myth, and on to questions of metaphysics and divinity. As a love poet, a landscape poet, and a spiritual pilgrim he has few equals. Translators Galassi, Wright, and Young recreate the distinctive music of a poet whose poems prove rich and compelling to an ever-growing body of readers.

This is the Montale to own if you are looking for a good introduction to his work and first-rate translations. The selection is wonderful, and so is the Introduction!
