DescriptionParole in Libertà or Words in Freedom, appeared as journals and manifestos between 1912 and 1915. This four-page edition includes four poems that use free verse, creative typography and other poetic impressions of events and scenery including a battle with the onomatopoeic sounds of gunfire and explosions. These poems are now seen as a seminal modern art, and an enormous influence on the emerging culture of visual and sound poetry.
