Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. This bilingual edition of METROPOLIS is one of the central works of the noted Italian experimentalist, Antonio Porta. Born in 1935, Porta reveals the terrors and excitement of living in the 20th centuryas he charts the two complimentary functions of truth and falsity. For Porta, these poles are at the opposite ends of cultural experience: The products of definition are a so-called 'high' culture, which aspires to epigraphic and dogmatic conclusions; and a 'low' culture in which the definition is used as a prevaricatory tool of information at all levels. Translated from the Italian by Pasquale Verdicchio.
