More From Eugenio Montale
- "Mass communication, radio, and especially television, have attempted, not without success, to annihilate every possibility of solitude and reflection."
- "There is also poetry written to be shouted in a square in front of an enthusiastic crowd. This occurs especially in countries where authoritarian regimes are in power."
- "Slowly poetry becomes visual because it paints images, but it is also musical: it unites two arts into one."
