SAPPHO: adaptations - imitations - extensions. by Mario Petrucci. Published in UK, 2008, 28 pages.
There are 23 poems, adaptations or imitations and extensions, just as Petrucci says. His poems are made from contemporary words not even the poetical words often, but are rhythmical and melodious. It gives us an unbalanced beauty at first sight, finally it remains an antic beauty.
Here is the end words on the back cover. "Clothed in respect for the Greek muse's characteristic music, these words dance across the gaps time has bequeathed us".
