This number of the literary & cultural review of Italian-Americana features the poem "Sicilian Suite" by Diane di Prima, among the foremost female members of the original Beat Generation. Also several poems by Amiri Baraka (formerly LeRoi Jones) in a "Guest Spot" department apparently reserved for non-Italian-Americans, including "Monk's World," a tribute to Jazz giant Thelonious Monk; a tribute to the great Italian-American poet & translator John Ciardi by Vince Clemente; & many more essays, fiction, poetry & reviews. Most text in English, one green-colored bilingual section with several works in Italian text with English translation. A most interesting collectible with contributions by several charter members of the Beat Generation where you might not expect to find them.

Interior very fine with only short wave-creases at upper corners of many page leaves. Fine. [Item #3138]
