A small masterpiece, Pea's lyrical autobiographical novel reveals a grandfather through his grandson's eyes. The old man and his brothers' madness, passion, and quirks are interwoven in intimate, mythical sketches and fiery portraits of family dynamics. The first installment of a four-part novel, Moscardino is linguistically adventurous and visual, vivid and anarchic. Pea's personal account of his first meeting with Pound accompanies the text.

Author Biography - Enrico Pea

Novelist, poet, and playwright, Enrico Pea (1881-1958) spent his youth traveling. Pea lived for a long time in Alexandria, where he struck up a friendship with Ungaretti. He published Moscardino (1922) as the first part of a series of four novels. Ezra Pound (1885-1972) is considered the poet most responsible for defining a modernist aesthetic in poetry. His significant contributions to poetry began with Imagism, stressing clarity, precision, and foregoing traditional rhyme and meter. His interest in "regionalism" attracted him to the work of Pea.
