Editor: Jack Hirschman

Paperback

Price: $21.95 $15.37

Overview

In Danger is the first anthology in English devoted to the political and literary essays of Pier Paolo Pasolini, with a generous selection of his poetry. Against the backdrop of post-war Italy, and through the mid-’70s, Pasolini’s writings provide a fascinating portrait of a Europe in which fascists and communists violently clashed for power and where journalists ran great risks. The controversial and openly gay Pasolini was murdered at the age of fifty-three; In Danger includes his final interview, conducted hours before his death.

Reviews

[Pasolini's] moral passion, analytical intelligence, and the stark beauty of his work make him one of the giants of Italian literature.–Village Voice

Patriotic poetry usually comes out of a right-wing tradition and is nationalistic, but Pasolini's great originality was to be a citizen-poet of the left . . . He wept over the ruins of Italy but without a hint of rhetoric.–Alberto Moravia

In an era when Italy produced a bumper crop of difficult, passionate artists, he may have been the . . . most prodigiously talented.–A. O. Scott
