Adriano Spatola, The Porthole

 

Translated from the Italian by Beppe Cavatorta and Polly Geller.
Edited with and Afterword by Beppe Cavatorta
Co-published with Agincourt Press

Guglielmo was born from the crossbreeding of a Samoyed and A Belgian sheepdog on an island in the Dead Sea. The newly found scrolls, currently in the process of being transcribed, are a possible proof of this He became a monk in order to isolate himself from the world: but the few who knew him well could see him go to the village on Mondays to buy groceries on his Guzzi mortorcycle, where he took part in large-scale maneuvers with the prophets of the desert, Impaled in Constantinople, he took revenge by becoming a stylite and sweeping his excrement onto the large, jammed-together crowd below.

Starting with the publication of his first book, L’ebreo negro (1964), at the age of 23, Adriano Spatola established himself as one of the leading innovators in European experimental poetry. In works such as Majakovskiiiiiiij and Diversi accorgimenti [“Various Devices”], Spatola rejected tired formal devices in favor of a more dynamic use of language. From 1970–1988 he published the seminal magazine TamTam. Spatola died in 1988.
