Italian Poetry Review (IPR) is a plurilingual journal of creativity and criticism that is part of a larger cultural program located at Columbia University in the City of New York and associated with the Department of Italian and the Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America. IPR appears in print once a year and is published by the Societá Editrice Fiorentina. IPR publishes texts principally in Italian and English and is the first journal to be published in Italy but created in the United States that is dedicated to the critical reception and the pluri-linguistic diffusion of Italian poetry in a broad comparative context. Every issue of IPR, which is interested in all periods of Italian poetry, is composed of various sections: Poems (original texts, untranslated, but annotated, by widely recognized Italian poets as well as by non-canonical and emerging authors), Translations (from and into Italian), Between Prose and Poetry (prose poems, intensely written short stories, one-act plays), Poetology and Criticism (critical essays on poetry, interviews), Reviews and Books Received. IPR proposes to establish a dialogue between specialist and non-specialist readers of poetry. The journal looks at global Italian-language literature from its origins to the hyper-contemporary and follows its interactions with other artistic modes of expression from both in and outside Italy.
