Pier Giorgio Di Cicco
In My Life Without Me, Pier Giorgio Di Cicco has created a kind of spiritual autobiography abstracted from its environment. It is a lyrical and philosophic exploration of the world and a deep meditation on the cultural distinctions we subscribe to and which we try to preserve in the face of globalization. While My Life Without Me explores the impersonal nature of the modern world, these poems take time to celebrate the sometimes heartbreaking idiosyncrasies of the human condition. With his characteristically strong personal voice, Di Cicco shows us that joy is the raison d’être of the creative act, that if we just pause to listen, something as simple as a mournful trumpet solo can be cathartic and restore unity to a fragmented world.
