Orphic Songs and Other Poems by Dino Campana

Translated with an Introduction and Notes by Luigi Bonaffini


Luigi Bonaffini

Orphic Songs is a fundamental text in modern Italian literature, and one of the most original, interesting and controversial. Considered by many to be the greatest Italian expressionist poet and the founder of modern Italian poetry for his unprecedented innovative and iconoclastic style, Campana holds a unique and fascinating place in Italian letters, and has captured the imagination of generations of poets and readers alike. Campana's stature as a major literary figure has been growing steadily since Orphic Songs was first published in 1914, and his book is now well established as an authentic Italian masterpiece.
