The Storm and Other Things

by Eugenio Montale

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Nobel laureate Montale is Italy's greatest modern poet. La bufera e altro (1956) is his greatest book. Until recently, English translations of Montale were inadequate, but with Arrowsmith, well-known translator and scholar, we have at last someone capable of dealing with Montale's ``dense imaginative difficulty,'' of rendering Montale's ``iridescence.'' An earlier translation by the fine poet Charles Wright (Field Translation Series 1, 1978), suffers from inaccuracies and from lack of the dual-language format. Finally, in addition to excellent translations, Arrowsmith provides a passionate preface and 65 pages of valuable commentary on individual poems. Highly recommended.
