The selected poetry of Pier Paolo Pasolini by Pier Paolo Pasolini( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most people outside Italy know Pier Paolo Pasolini for his films, many of which began as literary works--Arabian Nights, The Gospel According to Matthew, The Decameron, and The Canterbury Tales among them. What most people are not aware of is that he was primarily a poet--publishing nineteen books of poems during his lifetime--as well as a novelist, playwright, journalist, and visual artist. Half a dozen of these books have been excerpted and published in English over the years, but even if one were to read all of those, the wide range of poetic styles and subjects that occupied Pasolini during his lifetime would still elude the English-language reader"--Jacket
