Summary "Founded by F.T. Marinetti in 1909, Italian Futurism was the first major avant-garde movement of the twentieth century. It was also one of the longest lasting, having continued as long as Marinetti and his colleagues remained active, until at least 1944. Despite the provocative manifestos and outrageous public performances that earned its members international fame, their poetic achievements have received little post-war scholarly attention. With this anthology Willard Bohn seeks to bring these poems to a wider English-speaking audience.".
"Italian Futurist Poetry contains more than one hundred poems (in Italian with English translations) by sixty-one poets from across Italy. Arranged in roughly chronological order, the anthology reflects numerous aesthetic, historical, and cultural developments. It is a major contribution to the understanding of modern Italian culture and of twentieth-century avant-garde literature in general."--BOOK JACKET.
