Sandra Kirshenbaum, "Fine Print" Vol. III No. 3, July 1977: "A charming presentation of Poe's famous poem prefaced with a reverent short essay which, interestingly enough, is placed in a vertical text block in English faced by the Spanish in a horizontal text block. The ingenuous style of Veroni's illustrations and his flamboyant use of colors lend a touch of warm Latin romance to the mournful poem ... Veroni's books are refreshing to the eyes of one used to the cool restraint of North American volumes "

Dino Campana (1885 - 1932)

Wikipedia: "An Italian visionary poet. His fame rests on his only published book of poetry, the Canti orfici ("Orphic Songs"), as well as his wild and erratic personality. … He is often seen as an Italian example of a poète maudit."

Cambridge Encyclopedia, online: "Poet, born in Marradi, NC Italy. His life was blighted by a serious mental illness which forced him to spend long periods of time in mental hospitals, where he eventually died. His work greatly influenced modern Italian poetry, and he is considered a forerunner of the Ermetismo movement. His Canti orfici (1914), a collection which combines verse and poetic prose, is characterized by an intensely lyrical style which elevates the everyday to a symbolic dimension."

Horacio Armani, a former literary editor of the newspaper La Nacin (Buenos Aires) — poet, literary critic, anthologist, translator of Italian poetry.
