Introduction by Beverly Allen

This volume contains poems by well-known and rediscovered poets, such as Ada Negri (1870–1945), reflect both their own cultural milieus as well as such enduring themes as love, friendship, revolution and peace, work, and family. The poems are presented in their original language, alongside an English translation prepared especially for this volume.
