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)
