Thanks for all of the ideas, Anna Laura! I look forward to reading them. I, too, like Dickinson, Thomas, and Pound. And it looks like the Beats are a heavy favorite here on the board, so I'm definitely going to investigate and see what I'm missing.

Do you know the Copland settings of Dickinson? THey're wonderful.

Grazie ancora,

> A think Eugenio Montale is a milestone in italian contemporary poetry.
> Ungaretti, Quasimodo,Marinetti are important also. D' Annunzio is quite prominent also but i personally don't like it too much (too much decadent).
> A excellent but hard to decipher poet is Edoardo Sanguineti (still alive, lives in the city where i live). Pierpaolo Pasolini is good also.
> Many contemporary novel writers are poets: among them stands out Nanni Balestrini, novelist and political activist.
> He is the author of "The Invisibles", and "We want it all", novels written in a experimental manner (something close to Joyce stream of counsciousness).
> Another one is Franco Fortini (author of the essay "Extrema Ratio").
> My favourites are Emily Dickinson, Dylan Thomas, Ezra Pound, Arthur Rimbaud and the Beat Generation poets.
