(p.164) CHAPTER 9 Charles Tomlinson in the Golfo dei Poeti
Twentieth Century Poetry

Peter Robinson

Oxford University Press

The discussion of poetry about Italian politics is continued in this reading of Charles Tomlinson's poem Up at La Serra. This poem, set in Liguria in 1951, takes as its model a poem by Antonio Machado called Poema de un día, which Tomlinson had translated with the assistance of Henry Gifford. The chapter compares and contrasts the treatment of the situated poetic subject in the two poems, and how the Spanish original phrases its sense of a self in a situation differently from the translation.

Keywords:   Antonio Machado, Italian politics, Spanish poetry, translation, landscape, subjectivity, regret, revisiting
