In Hoarse Legend, Corrado Paina plunges into the maelstrom of language and race to bring back an evocative report of what is found there. His poems are an incisive critique of a culture that fears difference, yet the cities he describes are splendid in their diversity. This work engages with contemporary multicultural city life and themes of personal and social identity from a refreshing, unsentimental perspective. Hoarse Legend is a wake-up call to see and celebrate the individuality around us.
