Blu Maratea | Corrado Calabro'

"Blu Maratea"

by Corrado Calabrò

Roma, 2002  pagg. 272 

Of the sea and other stories ...

Corrado Calabrò wrote, as "no poet since the time of Montale" (Aldo M. Morace), of the "sea as a source of life, a sea as long as and as long as possible feelings" (Claudio Volpi), that "Mediterranean sea" which connects lands with distinct outlines "(Dante Maffia)," sea, desert of restlessness and divinity of fear "(Piero Cimatti).
      Calabrò tries a synthesis between scientific and philosophical truth, and poetic discovery and involves us in the pleasure of his research, of his navigation in himself towards the other by himself, he transmits the pleasure of waiting for an imminent revelation.
     The scan of his language is the most interesting novelty: in his verse the metric gives the poem the measure of our attention.
     Calabrò in his pages (the iconography is essential for its stripping) pursues a lyric and speculative tension, his absolute confession: mental concerts of the feeling of existence, of love, of time, which escape us like the sea.
In 2003, at San Felice Circeo Corrado Calabrò won the International Award "La Cultura del Mare" with "Blu Maratea".
