Lina AL Ojaili
لايعتمد ع مدرسة الهرمسية كثيرا فقد غلب عليه شعور المنفى والحنين الى الوطن

قاس هو المنفى
وبحثي عن السلام الذي انتهى بي إليك

تحوّلَ اليومَ إلى رغبةٍ في الموتِ مبكرة.

كلُّ حبّ وقاءٌ من الحزن.

خطوةٌ خرساء في الظلام

حيث الخبزة المرّة التي تركت

من أجلي.
When I began reading Quasimodo's poems, I frequently thought of the rules we give young writers as they try their hand in poetry: Describe things so the reader experiences them vividly, and perhaps in a new way; emphasize the sensory over the intellectual; strive for universal truths. Quasimodo turns his back on rules like these, and so my question is, what makes it okay for him to do so? Wouldn't his poems be graded down for being too muddled, too vague?

The volume doesn't start with his poems,
He puts so much weight on words, I find it a bit hard to penetrate and to accept translation. Not to say they aren't moments of limpidity and beauty or truly moving laments ... but I didn't plunge beneath the surface. That's a loaded sentence considering his affiliation with Hermetism and his Sicilian heritage, with the affinities for omerta (in a non-criminal way) and dietrologia that this implies.

I love that many of the old books of Italian poetry I've picked up - Saba, Montale, Ungaretti, Qua

Salvatore Quasimodo was a Sicilian poet who won the 1959 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his lyrical poetry, which with classical fire expresses the tragic experience of life in our own times."
