Segarizzi, A., La poesia di Venezia (Book Review)

Livingston, A. A.

As a scholarly work this book has value from its contribution to Venetian bibliography and as a summary of the themes and forms adopted by the poetry which Venice as a place of beauty, a seat of Italian independence, a hated political power, has inspired. The bulk of this literature is enormous; and as a mass, it has the defect of endless repetition and consistent mediocrity. This publication remedies these defects: it treats the themes progressively and every selection presents something new.
