The Unseen

by Nanni Balestrini, Preface by Antonio Negri, Translated by Liz Heron
£9.99   paperback  Verso Books (2011)

The Unseen by Nanni Balestrini, Preface by Antonio Negri, Translated by Liz Heron An epic joyful and explosive insurrection from the poet of youth rebellion.
 
For a brief explosive period in the mid-1970s, the young and the unemployed of Italy’s cities joined the workers in an unexpectedly militant movement known simply as Autonomy (Autonomia). Its “politics of refusal” united its opponents behind draconian measures more severe than any seen since the war.
 
Nanni Balestrini, the poet of youth rebellion, himself a victim of that repression, has invented a remarkable fictional form to express the hopes and conflicts of the movement. In spare but vivid prose, The Unseen follows Autonomy’s trajectory through the eyes of a single working-class protagonist — from high-school rebellion, squatting and attempts to set up a free radio station to arrest and the brutalities of imprisonment.
 
This is a powerful and gripping novel: a rare evocation of the intensity of commitment, the passion of politics.
