One of the most important Italian poets of the last century, Vittorio Sereni (1913-83) explores life under fascism, military defeat and imprisonment, and the resurgence of extreme right-wing politics. The "Selected Poetry and Prose of Vittorio Sereni" is a unique guide to this 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Perryman and Robinson's scholarly edition, which has been twenty-five years in the making, includes an introduction (from Robinson), chronology, illustrations, copious notes and a bibliography, all beautifully packaged by Chicago Press at a snip. Both texts offer faithful translations down to punctuation and line breaks, but they never falter as poems, with the same restrained and careful diction found in Robinson's own poetry....Perryman and Robinson have done us a great service in making such a rich selection of Vittorio Sereni's work available to the English speaking public."
