"We who dream about encountering the foundation of things are given infinite regression." Or, as it were, the experience or gift of giving back, of peering into the void, in an unrelenting mirror-like act of restitution that would restore the formlessness of the source or origin of things as the source of all forms. A poetry of spiritual restitution, of giving something back -- no matter how intangible -- rather than a relentless taking. A non-religious poetry, in the great pagan narrative or epic tradition of Homer and Whitman. Translation from the Italian by Stephen Sartarelli.
NANNI CAGNONE was born in the Italian province of Liguria in 1939. His books of poetry include What's Hecuba (New York, 1975), Andatura (Milan, 1979), Vaticinio (Naples, 1984), Anima del vuoto (Bari, 1993) and Avvento (Bari, 1995). His first book of collected poems, Armi senza insegne, was published in Milan in 1988.From the Author:
"The horizon is nothing / if it is not an honor to him / who keeps the emptiness out / and yet gathers it up, and [forms from it] the land / of our withdrawal. May it shine / resplendent now, like a ring / of anticipation, which with us awaits the things that are / and pronounces them in reverse."
