Verso Bisanzio (Poesie)/Byzantine Verse (Poetry) - William Butler Yeats

Product Description

Verso Bisanzio (Poesie)/Byzantine Verse (Poetry) - William Butler Yeats

Letteratura universale Marsilio - Elsinore - Italian Parallel Text

Edited by Dario Calimani

Paperback, 256 pages

Each volume in this series presents a classic of English literature with a new Italian translation on the facing page, as well as an extensive introduction, information about the text and the author, in-depth annotations, and a complete bibliography, all in Italian.

William Butler Yeats is widely considered to be one of the greatest poets of the 20th century. He belonged to the Protestant, Anglo-Irish minority that had controlled the economic, political, social, and cultural life of Ireland since at least the end of the 17th century. Most members of this minority considered themselves English people who happened to have been born in Ireland, but Yeats was staunch in affirming his Irish nationality. Although he lived in London for 14 years of his childhood (and kept a permanent home there during the first half of his adult life), Yeats maintained his cultural roots, featuring Irish legends and heroes in many of his poems and plays. He was equally firm in adhering to his self-image as an artist. This conviction led many to accuse him of elitism, but it also unquestionably contributed to his greatness.

Ciascun volume di questa collana si presenta come una monografia completa composta da un saggio introduttivo, una nuova traduzione con testo a fronte, note informative sull'autore e sull'opera, un commento essenziale, una ricca bibliografia.

Vicenda personale e storia d'Irlanda si trasfigurano nella poesia fantasmagorica del premio Nobel W.B. Yeats. L'animo del poeta si dilania nella tensione fra ansia terrena e arte assoluta, fra amore e violenza politica, ed è nelle contraddizioni il lato più umano dell'espressione artistica. Una poesia che cerca di conciliare le opposizioni, in una disperata ricerca di realizzazione nella permanenza dell'Arte, incapace tuttavia di rinunciare alla «furia e [al] fango delle vene umane». Una selezione della migliore e più alta poesia di Yeats, in una nuova, mirabile traduzione, che, nel religioso rispetto dell'originale, dichiara l'innamoramento per la sua musica.
