Pier Paolo Pasolini was a major cultural figure in post-WW2 Italy, well known as a poet, novelist, communist intellectual, and filmmaker.
In Danger is the first anthology in English devoted to his political and literary essays, and includes a generous selection of his poetry. Against the backdrop of post-war Italy, and continuing through the mid-'70s, Pasolini's writings provide a fascinating portrait of a Europe in which fascists and communists violently clashed for power and journalists ran great risks. The controversial and openly gay Pasolini was murdered at fifty-three; In Danger includes his final interview, conducted hours before his death, as well as the cryptic litany "What Is This Coup?
I Know," which many suspect motivated his murder. The poetry ranges from early works written go here the Friulan dialect through his later lyric blasts against fascism. At the same time, concerns with poverty, revolution, and the class struggle are pervasive. Semiotics and philosophical speculation are regularly intertwined with political thought.
In Danger is edited and introduced by internationally renowned poet Jack Hirschman, who also edited the enduring City Lights classic Artaud Anthology. Sign up for the free City Lights eNewsletter! City Lights Foundation Books.
