The Poetry of the Tradition

 

 

Pier Paolo Pasolini


Oh unfortunate generation!
What will happen tomorrow, if whatever ruling class—when they were fledglings
they didn’t know the poetry of the tradition
their experience of it was unhappy because since they lacked a realistic smile it was beyond them
and even for what little of it they came to know, they had to show 
they wanted to know it yes but as detached spectators.
Oh unfortunate generation!
who in the winter of ‘70 wore fanciful overcoats and shawls
and were spoiled
who taught you not to feel inferior —
you repressed your divinely infantile uncertainties ­—
he who’s not aggressive is an enemy of the people! Ah!
The books, the old books passed before your eyes 
like the belongings of an old enemy
you felt obligated not to yield
to beauty grown in the soil of forgotten injustices
