About the Author

Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-75) was an Italian film director, poet, writer and one of the most controversial and provocative intellectuals of his time. He worked together with Mauro Bolognini, Bernardo Bertolucci and Franco Rossi. Mostly known for his first and last films, Accattone and Sal , as well as The Gospel According to St. Matthew and Decameron, he was also a prolific essayist and activist. He was murdered in 1975.


"Pasolini seems to me indisputably the most remarkable figure to have emerged in Italian arts and letters since the Second World War ... His poetry is an important part of his passionate, proud, historically vulnerable body of work, a work in and with history; and of the tragic itinerary of his sensibility."- Susan Sontag "Pasolini was what can be termed a citizen-poet. He was concerned with his homeland and expressed his feelings in his work. Patriotic poetry usually comes out of a right-wing tradition and is nationalistic, but Pasolini's great originality was to be a citizen-poet of the left ... He wept over the ruins of Italy but without a hint of rhetoric. He was a modern who used the classical tradition. Rimbaud, the poet of the Paris Commune, the most revolutionary of poets, remained his greatest influence. In the years after the Mussolini dictatorship, he adhered, like many of his compatriots, to an unorthodox brand of communism, that was both Christian and utopian, and these feelings for the poor and underprivileged motivated his own poetry and films." - Alberto Moravia, New York Times "If today there is no more outside to capital, then we must discover within it and its social formations spaces of liberation that bring together anticapitalist practice and sexual freedom, poetry and history, which have the power eventually to create an alternative to capitalist society. Pasolini's efforts set the bar high for realizing such a political concept of love." - Michael Hardt
