Da qualche parte nello spazio. Poesie 2011-2021

This volume offers an anthology of the verse writing of Fabio Pusterla, one of Italy’s leading contemporary poets, covering the last ten years of his activity. The selection encompasses the most significant texts from the collections Corpo stellare (2011), Argéman (2015) and Cenere, o terra (2018), and has as its common thread the human/nature relationship, today at the center of ecocritical debate. The concluding section also presents a series of unpublished works, giving an account of the ongoing work of a poet at once true to himself and original, consistent yet open to new forms and new themes. The book is enriched by a valuable authorial self-commentary, which will accompany the reader along with Massimo Natale’s essay.

With an essay by Massimo Natale and a self-commentary by the author.
