Leading from beauty to truth, from feeling to thought, is part of the possibilities of poetry. Texts must have an intrinsic beauty although this is not enough: poetry is also an event in which the reader actively participates. The textual analysis of Luì (Turin, Einaudi, 2003) highlights the peculiar ways in which all these possibilities can come to fruition: a broken syntax; an enigmatic and allusive dictation; a calibrated use of omission; silences at the service of conciseness and power; images capable of evoking wonder and mystery; a sudden juxtaposition of harsh and delicate tones, of irony and melancholy. A sense of trepid solidarity towards living beings pervades the entire composition.
