Described as the most "conspicuous voice in Italian poetry after Eugenio Montale," Mario Luzi created for himself an unmistakably individual rhythm, idiom, and ethos ... Particular to Luzi's poetry is the quality of lyricism, and tone of conversational intimacy, of which For the Baptism of Our Fragments represents the crowing achievement of a long poetic career which began with his first book of poems in 1935. -- G. Singh, World Literature Today
What rest? what stone/ on which to lay one's head? Nothing,/ there is no such stone, there is no place/ where you can stay. You must/ be. Be always
