First published in Italy in 1971, Satura is the fourth collection of poems by the Nobel Prize winner Eugenio Montale (1896-1981). In "Satura," the poet experimented with dialogue, journalistic notation, commentary, aphorism, and half-strangled song, and pressed Italian literary language into terrain it had never touched before. These are poems whose reductions and sacrifices define a new lyric art.
