Erminia Passannanti's analysis is lucid even as she compiles the daunting number of references that Fortini drew on in writing this tour de force. Her critique winds through the eighteen meandering octaves (in seven sections or "fragments") to signal allusions to literary, ideological, and mytho-religious sources. Particularly apt are the critic's elucidation of Fortini's use of an expressionist style, one which was not his own but which he employed in order to critique a particular historical-poetic mode of inertia and self-indulgence (broadly understood as experimentalist). Fortini's poem stands, as Passannanti notes, as an epochal reassertion of the "dignity" of the Italian poetic tradition. (Thomas E. Peterson, University of Georgia)
