Peasants' Wake for Fellini's Casanova and Other Poems by Andrea Zanzotto

Book Description

The main body of this volume is a unique film poem that grew out of Zanzotto's collaboration with Frederico Fellini on the film Casanova. The poem's beauty is enhanced by its presentation in the original Veneto dialect along with contemporary Italian and English. With reference to Finnegans Wake and utilizing Fellini-inspired myth, the trilingual play of the poetry is rich in layers, rich in meanings. Including drawings by Fellini and illustrations by Murer, this volume also contains poems dedicated to Montzale, Pasolini, and Charlie Chaplin - and the first English translation of Zanzotto's poem on the tragedy of Bosnia - all together in an unusual and beautiful format.
