Overview

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.
