Poema en forma de rosa

Pier Paolo Pasolini, Xavi Valls Guinovart (Translator), Ricard Vinyes (Prologue)

Edicions Poncianes

Pier Paolo Pasolini excelled as a writer and film-maker and took part in the great debates of modern times from the perspective of creative freedom, critical radicalism and personal honesty. Poem in the shape of a rose, which had never been translated into Catalan, makes a big contribution to the concepts of history, memory, identity, modernity and tradition from a humanist and universal perspective. What’s more, Pasolini visited Barcelona in the 1960s, and this visit led to the creation of one of his most intense poems, «Negotiations with Franco» which we have included in the appendix. A bilingual edition to commemorate the centenary of the birth of one of the most important intellectuals of the 20th century.
