F.T. Marinetti (1876-1944) is widely known as the founder of Futurism, an early-20th-century cultural revolution. This volume, a translation of more than 40 poems and prose works by Marinetti, is designed to present premier examples of his rich poetic creations, translated into English. The collection represents the entire span of the poet's career, and it includes Marinetti's early lyrical works, poems of battle, "Words in Freedom", and love poems to his wife. There is also a biography of Marinetti and a critical review of his poetic accomplishment.
