While Carmine Starnino’s debut covers much ground
— translations of Italian poets he has admired, monologues by characters in the New Testament, meditations on Caravaggio’s religious paintings — it is his examination of his immigrant family that demands the most admiration. “The New World” offers the reader an unforgettable glimpse of one poet’s cultural inheritance.
Starnino’s poems have been published in Poetry Canada, the Malahat Review, and Fiddlehead. His work has been selected for the anthology Breathing Fire: Canada’s New Poets.
