In this text, the poet's discourse centres on "variations" of a few fundamental themes, among which predominates, from the very first poem, the theme of death. This poetry tends to resolve itself into an oscillatory movement of lights and shadows, a movement which on the one hand reflects the changeability of reality - it is not by chance that Sereni inserts on the inside cover, in an almost programmatic way, this line from Montaigne: "Fluctuating and changeable life" - and on the other, the contrasts and changes in the poet's spirit. Vittorio Sereni's last book of verse and the one perhaps containing, as the author himself underlined, his best poetry was published in 1981.
