Author. Considered one of the founders of contemporary Italian Poetry, he won the 1975 Nobel Prize for Litearture. A member of the "Hermetic" movement during World War I, his complex style mixed archaic words, scientific terms, and slang with varied symbolism to express what he called "the pain of living" in the modern world. His books include "Cuttlefish Bones" (1916), "Occasions" (1939), "The Storm and Other Things" (1956), and "Auto-da-fe" (1966). A reclusive man who shunned publicity, Montale divulged few details of his private life. He is said to have wanted to become an opera singer and in later years he lived in an apartment across from the La Scala opera house in Milan. Montale was also an amateur composer.
