English text

This volume collects the proceedings of the conference dedicated to Italian Literature and England, sponsored by two American universities, Georgetown and Kent State, and organized by Michael J. Collins, Marcello Fantoni and Giuseppe Galigani. The conference was held in Fiesole and Florence, where some twenty scholars from various Universities: Georgetown, Harvard, Kent State, Michigan, Rutgers, Wales, Bologna, Brescia, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Venice, convened for two days, June 20-21, 2005, to deliver their lectures. The essays of this collection are roughly ordered according to the chronological sequence of Italian authors and provide a rich if not complete panorama of the interchange between Italian Literature and the English speaking world, ranging from Dante to Montale and from Chaucer to Seamus Heany.
