An underappreciated Italian poet in the tradition of Rimbaud. Better than most of the beat’s work. I’ve long admired the few extracted poems of Ca,pana that I’ve come across over the years–I even teach a pair of them, along with a few classic examples of Montale and Ungaretti’s poems, in my 20th century Italian lit course as a unit on Hermetic poetry. Therefore I’m quite pleased to have finally gone over his entire oeuvres–this one small book–both the scattered verses and the long descriptive prose pieces.
It’s all part of yet another reading resolution of mine: Dino Campana is the self proclaimed Hermetic “poet of the night. I think obsession is the theme that his formal and stylistic quirks best exemplify–incessant images, adjectives, phonetic repetitions.
A desire to describe every place he visits, always without interaction, as if the world were a series of places through which he moved as one watched images roll by on a movie screen, each place’s uniqueness brought mysteriously together–perhaps through the medium, the screen, the situation of the observer.
Each place is filled with the same adjectives, the same phrases, an eternal sunset, an eternal longing to get to the heart of it, and never any heart found, any answer provided. Then on to another place, another subject, another image of a distant woman.
The longing of these texts, the inability for them to answer the many questions that they themselves raise and plead to resolve has left the biggest mark on me. My favorite remains “La vetriata” or, as translated by another, “The Skylight. The poet overturns all conventions of hope and darkness in a kind of lost Romantic voice driven mad by the newly industrialized world he can no longer recognize–or at least not imagine as anything other than a stage set through which he, the author, never seems to enter to play his role.
He watches through many windows, many skylights, and describes, always in rhythm–with or without verse–always returning to the adjectives–smokey, golden, silvery, fatuous, secret, dark–and the same images, an eternal twilight, and eternal vagabondage about an alien city. I read a facsimile version of the Marradi edition Campana’s hometown in the Tosco-Romognole section of the Apennines so perhaps some other texts have been added to the modern edition–this one was missing his famous love poem for Sibilla Aleramo, “In un momento.
In a moment The roses have bloomed have withered The petals fallen Because I couldn’t forget the roses We looked for and found together Her roses my roses We called this journey love And with our blood and our tears We made the roses They shone for a moment in the morning sun Then withered in the sun among the brambles The roses that were not our roses My roses her roses P.
And that’s how we forgot the roses for Sibilla Aleramo Citato in un romanzo camoana ho letto da poco, ho voluto assaggiarlo per capire di che trattasi. Like an Italian Rimbaud. Fragmentary because he had to rewrite it from memory after the original manuscript was lost.
