Giacomo Leopardi in and on Translation (Roundtable)

This roundtable invites contributions that address the English translation of Giacomo Leopardi's Zibaldone dei pensieri, presently available on pre-order. Participants are asked to reflect on the impact this new translation is likely to have on Leopardi studies, on issues that the team of translators faced in rendering the original Italian, and the impact that the English Zibaldone may have on the translation and/or reading of Leopardi's poetry. Send abstracts to Corrado Federici, Deadline for submission of abstracts is September 30, 2014.
