Overview

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!
