Eugenio Montale (1896-1981) is not only Italy's greatest modern poet but a towering figure in twentieth-century literature. His incandescently beautiful body of work is deeply rooted in the venerable lyric tradition that began with Dante, but he brilliantly reinvents that tradition for our time, probing the depths of love, death, faith, and philosophy in the bracing light of modern history.

Marked by musicality and rhythmic variety, Montale's poems manage to be buoyant with allusion and metaphor while also densely studded with things--with concrete, elemental images that keep his complex and restless musings firmly tethered to the world. Montale's reputation is international and enduring; his widely translated work has profoundly influenced generations of poets around the world.
