Observations : Poems
These thirteen poems provide an introduction to the recent work of Bolognese poet Claudio Pasi. It includes selections from his sequences ‘Via del dolore’ (Way of suffering, 2014), ‘A cuore aperto’ (Open heart, 2015) and ‘Tempo di guerra’ (Wartime, 2014), plus new poems.
As eminent poet Alessandro Fo says in his introduction to this collection, ‘Pasi’s poetics are characterised by an empathetic and moving attention to the little things – the mini-dramas – of life: those ‘normal’ but dramatic events in the day-to-day happenings of a person, family, or community.’
