Songs of My Surrenders

Songs of My Surrenders


Frenetic, fervent and musical, Songs of My Surrenders is the follow up to Marc di Saverio's highly acclaimed epic poem Crito Di Volta. 

Following in the footsteps of great Modernist and Romantic poets, and yet paving a path that is unmistakably his own, contemporary rebel-poet di Saverio offers a deeply romantic and darkly spiritual array of masterful sonnets, senryu and haiku, alongside select translations from Émile Nelligan, Arthur Rimbaud, Charles Baudelaire, and Giacomo Leopardi. 

At its heart, Songs of My Surrenders offers an overpowering vision of a decaying civilisation, insisting that the cure is found in passionate and unconditional love, and in urgent spiritual renewal.

A wind of dust blows my tears

Into the daisies of the jetty where I wait

For you continuously; is it true

What they say, that you no longer love

Me? I will wait here, still. I will not move.
