Montale, Eugenio (Translated by G. Singh). THE BUTTERFLY OF DINARD. Lexington, KY: University Press Of Kentucky, 1971. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 186 pages. Fine/Fine.

Collection of poems. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only by a University Press. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Eugenio Montale's "The Butterfly of Dinard" in a felicitous English translation by G. Singh. Elegant translations that serve Montale's poetry well. Montale's delicate and subtle work has been translated into English by some of the finest writers in the English language. Singh's work is worthy to stand alongside them. An absolute "must-have" title for Eugenio Montale collectors. This title is a modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (American) still available online and is in fine condition overall: Clean, crisp, and bright. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1975. The greatest Italian poet of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EUGENIO MONTALE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0900626046. $20.00
