“The world is never experienced as something which is believed, anymore than it is guaranteed by knowledge. What is needed, if this question comes up at all, is that we experience our existence in its most elementary consititution of being, as being in the world.” Giovanni Cerbiatto.
The first ever English translations of Giovanni Cerbiatto’s simple and complete poems. Little is known about this living poet from Umbria, Italy, whose work barely infiltrates the world of the internet.
This Sampson Low Chapbook is beautifully illustrated by London artist Alban Low. Best known for his work on the London Jazz scene, he shows us a quieter and more contemplative side that reflects the stillness of Cerbiatto’s poems.
Ten poems with eight lines is the second in Sampson Low’s chapbook series.
