Dictionary of Italian-American Poets


Prof. Ferdinando P. Alfonsi

This book, the first of its kind in the world, studies a body of literature thus far almost unexplored. After discussing such concepts as immigration and ethnicity and giving a definition of Italo-American Poetry, it presents roughly one thousand poets. Following the criterion of inclusiveness, known and unknown poets, those who have published one or more collections, as well as those whose works have appeared only in magazines, have been listed. A short bio, a list of his/her books and criticism have been given for each of them whenever available.
