Item description for The Siege (L'assedio) (New American Translations) by Ljuba Merlina Bortolani...
Written when Ljuba Merlina Bortolani was fifteen years old, The Siege (L'assedio) is driven by a brazen, exuberant voice and a linguistic acrobatics not unlike that of the most celebrated European teen prodigy poet-Arthur Rimbaud. Phantasmagorical and surreal, the poems move us through the chameleon shadings of lust and love, as well as over the serpentine line between memory and desire. The Siege is translated by Michael Palma, one of the country's leading translators of contemporary Italian poetry. Italian-American poet Alfredo de Palchi has written an introduction to this bilingual collection.
