Summary

One of the most important Italian poets of the last century, Vittorio Sereni (191383) wrote with a historical awareness unlike that of any of his contemporaries. A poet of both personal and political responsibility, his work sensitively explores life under fascism, military defeat and imprisonment, and the resurgence of extreme right-wing politics, as well as the roles played by love and friendship in the survival of humanity. The first substantial translation of Sereni's oeuvre published anywhere in the world, The Selected Poetry and Prose of Vittorio Sereniis a unique guide to this twentieth-century poet. A bilingual edition, reissued in paperback for the poet's centenary, it collects Sereni's poems, criticism, and short fiction with a full chronology, commentary, bibliography, and learned introduction by British poet and scholar Peter Robinson.
