Charl-Pierre Naudé interviews 90-year-old Rina Cascione about Die kliniek van verlatenheid, her beautiful translation of Alda Merini’s poems. As one of Italy’s most celebrated literary figures, Merini wanted to be known as “the poet of joy”. In her later years she was known for often fishing money out of her bra to give to someone in need, and even though she was shown on TV in a state of neglect, she always had about her an undeniably regal aura.
