Last Walk of Giovanni Pascoli

translations by Danielle Hope

The Last Walk of Giovanni Pascoli is a bilingual book, containing the sequence of rural poems by one of Italy’s most famous poets and their translation in English by Danielle Hope, a poet and physician who has worked in Pascoli’s home region of Romagna.  The Last Walk is a subtle and beguiling sequence that has fascinated many writers, including Seamus Heaney.  The book is illustrated with vignettes of rural life by Frances Wilson, who also designed the cover.
