A unique talent , words and poems such as death will come and have your eyes and the cats will know etc dreams in words. . I had difficulty connecting to these poems, and so it would not only be unfair but downright impossible for me to rate this book The introduction lead me to believe that Pavese, a great admirer of The Spoon River Anthology was attempting something similar in the way of differing view points, however I found such a uniformity of voice with a few notable exceptions that I think Pavese was actually doing something muchsubtle something not written for someone such as myself who comes from such a different cultural background Does this make these poems less important I don t think so, but it does make me less qualified to judge them. I also suspect that there may be some translation issues There are some phrases that are just so awkward they they jar, and since I can t see any artistic reason for these jarring phrases, I must as The rhythm of the poems was very nice, and the beauty of the Italian countryside becomes nearly a character in itself, which is interesting Pavese s treatment of women in his poetry precluded giving anythan two stars, however Pavese seems to be the sort of man who has never understood the purpose of women, outside of having sex with men and bearing sons The pervasive misogyny is off putting at best, and outright disgusting at times Women appear primarily as objects of sexual interest, walking down the street or in the vineyards The few who don t appear as current sexual objects are, strangely, prostitutes one drinks coffee in a cafe while enjoying the fact that she s off duty, as it were, until that eve Sublime collection of Pavese s poems It s up there with the best poetry I have ever read. One of my faves below Passion for Solitude I m eating a little supper by the bright window. The room s already dark, the sky s starting to turn. Outside my door, the quiet roads lead,after a short walk, to open fields. I m eating, watching the sky who knowshow many women are eating now My body is calm labour dulls all the senses, and dulls women too. Outside, after supper, the stars will come out to touchthe wide plain of the earth The stars are alive,but not worth these cherries, which I m eating alone. I look at the sky, know that lights already are shiningamong rust red roofs, noises of people beneath them.
