Summary (From the publisher):

Cesare Pavese was one of Italy's great post-war writers. His poetry was revolutionary-both artistically and politically-rejecting the verbal and philosophical constraints of tradition and utilizing direct, colloquial language. His subjects were peasants, hobos, and prostitutes, and this bilingual volume includes all the poetry Pavese ever published, including work originally deleted by Fascist censors.
