When World War II ended in 1945, Italian culture had undergone profound social, political and ethical changes. While some intellectuals called for a new cultural identity that could embrace the realistic aspects of everyday life, others sought refuge from the world through ironic humor, escapist poetry and rejection of history. DLB Volume 128 explores the myriad Italian poets-and their varied poetic tendencies, artistic goals and ideologies-who have struggled to find a distinctive voice in postwar Italy. Its companion volume is DLB Volume 114, which covers Italian poets who wrote in the first half of the 20th century. 50 ENTRIES INCLUDE: Elio Filippo Accrocca ,Luigi Ballerini,Dario Bellezza,Annalisa Cima,Tonino Guerra,Biagio Marin,lbino Pierro,Silvio Ramat,Vittorio Sereni,Diego Valeri,Andrea Zanzotto.
