(Swans - January 11, 2010)  

"Maybe one day I will come back, thirsty,
to your sources..."

Fern der Himmel und die Tiefe nah
Sterne warum seid ihr noch nicht da?
far the sky, near the abyss...
are you late again, stars, why?

et le Poète...
exilé sur le sol... en les regardant
ses ailes de géant l'empêchent de marcher
and the poet looks at them
exiled on the earth
his wings as a giant's
not allowing him to walk any more...

e quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle
thereby we went out to see the stars



Silvia Dello Russo was born in Parma, Italy, on November 15, 1974. In 1995 she left for Germany, Halle an der Saale, at the "Marthin Luther Universitaet," where she focused her studies on germanistic in terms of etymology, metric stylistic poetry, and glottology.

In 1997 she started an innovative study on mitteleuropean languages at the University college of London, especially on a translation of the Etymlanguage of Arno Schmidt in Zettels Traum.

She ended her studies with the publication of her works in Power of words (ed. universitaria indip., 2000), a multilingual discussion of the ontological value of words in terms of mathematical and philosophical concept, by extending the function of languages beyond a transparent medium with her conception that languages are anthropocentric.

She is working in Parma on a theatre work on Hamlet's foolishness of William Shakespeare, cooperating with the Director Tapella in the creations of the dramaturgical text with the use of a borderline language as mirror of mental diseases and apparent normality.
