Caesar’s farsighted lucidity and Cicero’s Philistine moralism, Catullus’ despair and funniness, Horace’s meditation on time and death, Livy’s patriotism, Virgil’s sorrowful 'pietas' for the human condition. The reflection of the ancient authors shines forth in the literary experience of one of the major Italian writers of the 20th century, from his youthful nationalism to his condemnation of Fascism’s poisonous myths.
