Item description for Earthly and Heavenly Journey of Simone Martini (Green Integer) by Mario Luzi, Luigi Bonaffini & Barbara Carle...

Recognized as one of the great living poets of Italy, and several times a candidate for the Nobel Prize, Luzi wrote this work in 1994, when he was eighty. In it the poet imagines the last voyage of the great painter from Avignon to his native Siena, in the company of his family, servants, and a theology student. Their pilgrimage is a journey of discovery and purification that leads to a new, vibrant perception of reality.

Reviews - What do customers think about Earthly and Heavenly Journey of Simone Martini (Green Integer)?

Titanic work of the great maestro   Sep 19, 2005
Viaggio terrestre e celeste di Simone Martini (1994):
there was perhaps no poet more deserving of the Nobel prize. Yet Luzi had passed away, in pace dominis, this year (after a lengthy writing career began in 1935). The playwrite Dario Fo said, at the news of Luzi's departure, E' morto il Senatore, perché il Poeta resterà sempre con noi».
(Pass the dunce hat for the increasingly unbalanced Nobel Prize for Lit. committee! What were they thinking?)...Il viaggio describes, not without a nod in the direction of Dante's La Divina, an ultimate journey of the vibrant trecento master, Simone Martini and his retinue. It's a poeticised dream-like travelogue, an imagined painter's return from Avignon to his native Siena. The rest is the metaphysics and the beautiful, rarified language.
The handy, hand-held "Integer" bilingual edition is perfect intro to Luzi's poetry.
