Antonio Porta, pen name of Leo Paolazzi, (1935-1989) lived in Milan and was
widely recognized as one of the most important and talented Italian writers of his
generation. He was one of the founders in 1961 of “I Novissimi”, a group of
avant-garde poets whose new poetics looked to counter the dominant
influence in Italy of the hermetic school. A poet, playwright, novelist,
print and radio journalist, essayist and writer for children, Porta was ever-intent on literary experimentation as a form of self-renewal. Extensively translated, his English-language publications include the novel The King of the Storeroom (Hanover, NH: Wesleyan University Press, 1992); the stories and poems in Kisses, Dreams & Other Infidelities (Riverside, CA: Xenos Books, 2004); and several collections of poetry: Invasions and Other Poems (Los Angeles: Red Hill Press, 1986); Passenger (Montreal: Guernica Editions, 1985); Metropolis (Los Angeles: Green Integer, 1999); and Melusine: A Ballad and a Diary (Montreal: Guernica, 1991).
