ULYSSES' SHADOWS

trying to achieve my Ulysses' series...I struggled lots after this piece, one of those "reluctant objects" where everything doesn't respond
to the author's will...not the gold, nor the nibs, neither the support - strongly unsatisfying, so I'm actually considering it no more than sort
of an ingenuous "step to", a first and very naïf essay - the only thing I like is that "greek copperplate"...and the text I myself wrote.

(Fabriano F2 + SKETCH papers, Herbin inks, Staedtler watercolor pencils, 23 kt gold on PVA)

IO NON SO PIÚ SCRIVERE
È NAUFRAGA LA MANO
TRA I SEGNI FLUTTUANTI
DI ALFABETI IN BURRASCA

(I can't write any more
wrecked is my hand
among the floating signs
of alphabets in a gale)

il naufrago è ombra d'uomo per coloro che ne aspettano il ritorno,
uomo d'ombra per coloro che lo ospitano in terre straniere oltre il mare.

ο ναυαγός είναι σκιά του ανθρώπου για εκείνους που περιμένουν την επιστροφή,
και ανθρώπου σκιά για εκείνους που είναι στο σπίτι σε πέρα από τη θάλασσα.

(the castaway is shade of a man for those who await his return,
shadow man for those who guest him in foreign lands beyond the sea.)
