In commemoration of the birthday of Filippo Marinetti, I would like to draw your attention to several writings on this website.
First, there is Marinetti’s “Futurist Manifesto” of 1909.
Second, there is Kerry Bolton’s essay “Filippo Marinetti,” now in an expanded version.
Third, there is Ted Sallis’ review essay on Mark Antliff’s Avant-Garde Fascism.
There are two excellent English language editions of Marinetti’s principal works:
1. Selected Poems and Related Prose, trans. Elizabeth R. Napier and Barbara R. Studholme (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2002)
2. Critical Writings, trans. Gunther Berghaus and Doug Thompson (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2006)
