His lyrical, mysterious poems abound in natural images - the high cliffs and inlets of the Ligurian coast, golden sunflowers, scolding blackbirds, and sun-scorched landscapes. Montale in English draws on the poets eight major collections, bringing together translations, adaptations, and homages by fifty-seven poets and scholars, including Samuel Beckett, Daniel Bosch, David Ferry, Jonathan Galassi, Lee Gerlach, Jorie Graham, Robert Lowell, J.D. McClatchy, Edwin Morgan, and Charles Wright. The editors introduction gives a precise account of the history of Montales reception in English and, by providing an analysis of four translations of a single poem, contributes to the controversial issue of poetic translation.
