In the wake of Yale Italian Poetry, comes the Italian Poetry Review (IPR), a plurilingual journal of creativity and criticism. IPR is part of a larger cultural program located in the City of New York and associated with the Department of Italian at Columbia University and the Italian Academy for Advanced Studies in America as well as with the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Fordham University.

IPR publishes texts principally in Italian and English and is the first journal to be published in Italy but created in the United States, dedicated to the critical reception and pluri-lingual diffusion of Italian poetry in a broad comparative context.

Every issue of IPR, which is interested in all periods of Italian poetry, is composed of various sections: Poems (original texts, untranslated, but annotated, by widely recognized Italian poets and by non-canonical and emerging authors), Translations (from and into Italian), Between Prose and Poetry (prose poems, intensely written short stories, one-act plays), Poetology and Criticism (critical essays on poetry, interviews), Reviews and Books Received. IPR also publishes from time to time a section of Inquiries, which explores specific problems of poetry and poetics.

IPR proposes to establish a dialogue between specialist and non-specialist readers of poetry. Our journal looks at global Italian-language literature from its origins to the hyper-contemporary and follows its interaction with other artistic modes of expression from both in and outside Italy.

IPR appears in print once a year and, as of volume II 2007, is published in Florence, Italy by the Società Editrice Fiorentina. The journal oversees the publication of the poetry, translations and essay series Ungarettiana.
