Comments Diadem: Selected Poems

  • Lou Last

    The snail, that whorl of smoke that never rises, with a radiant pink rim, a cherub, a cherishment. Suddenly, it pokes out its forehead and invisible feet, and walks like a man, a maiden of the heavens, of the dirges, its carnal trumpets are never heard. It is, simultaneously, man and maiden. In that white shard dwell Hermes and Aphrodite; just like that, it stops and mates with itself. And after an agonizing second, it continues, across the pink facades of the roses, like a carriage, a wandering [...]

    I was so happy to discover this translation of Marosa Di Giorgio's beautiful poems, a selection pulled from her various works over the years I'm not usually a poetry person, but something about her work pulls me right in it's dreamlike and evocative, melancholy and strange. It left me wanting more!!

    This text was required reading for Intro to Creative Writing at the University of Utah, taught by Caren Beilin.It was used as an example of what we called Series I Remember form: a series of individual experiences or memories, all tied together under an umbrella theme. The writing can be obscure, and I would recommend it more for poetry lovers than prose. The language is beautiful and Di Giorgio's voice is unique.

    I love DiGiorgio's poems. After reading the History of Violets, I found this book. Equally splendid! It's like Alice in Wonderland only more erotic and more brutal. I found a poem that struck me so powerfully, I had to set the book down as I reeled from its beauty and power. Even for this one poem, "God's here/God speaks." the book is worth it.

    di Giorgio's prose poems are each beautiful, surreal worlds that linger long enough to create a dreamlike image of the whole. Reading the poems in Spanish alongside the Wnlish translations was a real treat; one that only added to the lovely winding path. I'm a fan of getting lost inside this kind of world.
