LIFE OF A MAN

LIFE OF A MAN

Just like naked words, purity, essence, reality. Giuseppe Ungaretti‘s poetry brings us to the under skin, the earth, without any additions. “Life of a Man” is an essential book, extraordinary, beautiful and painful as life itself.

Here it is a poem by Ungaretti [Free and unofficial translation]:

Wanderer

In any


Part
of this Earth


I can not


Ingrain

Each


New


Climate


I find


I discover


Faltering


That


Once


I already


accustomed

 

And I am always separated


Foreign

 

Born


Tornado of times too


Lived up

 

Enjoy only one


Minute of life


Initial

Seeking an


Innocent country.

 

Kisses, hugs,

Álex
