Michael Palma has furnished us with a good, sensitive English translation, adhering to the basic form of the original verses. We may conclude that Fontanella realizes he will never understand life completely, but simply wishes to depict it in a clear language. He is interested in the human. This cheerful volume of poetry is the product of an "eterno incerto sognatore."[8]
