Prampolini’s portrait of Filippo Marinetti, 1876 – 1944

109 words

In commemoration of the birthday of Filippo Marinetti, I would like to draw your attention to several writings on this website.

First, there is Marinetti’s “Futurist Manifesto [2]” of 1909.

Second, there is Kerry Bolton’s essay “Filippo Marinetti [3],” now in an expanded version.

Third, there is Ted Sallis’ review essay on Mark Antliff’s Avant-Garde Fascism [4].

There are two excellent English language editions of Marinetti’s principal works:

1. Selected Poems and Related Prose [5], trans. Elizabeth R. Napier and Barbara R. Studholme (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2002)

2. Critical Writings [6], trans. Gunther Berghaus and Doug Thompson (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2006)
