Author: Aldo Palazzeschi

Aldo Palazzeschi (1885-1974) had a distinguished career as a writer of essays, stories, novels, and poems. He won particular acclaim for the novels The Materassi Sisters (1934), The Cuccoli Brothers (1948), and Roma (1953). Palazzeschi's early avant-garde works, the anti-novel The Man of Smoke (1911) and the volume of poetry THE ARSONIST (1910) were both originally published by F. T. Marinetti's Futurist press.

Nicholas Benson's poetry and translations have appeared in New England Review, Prairie Schooner, Calque, and other journals. His translation of Attilio Bertolucci's WINTER JOURNEY was published in 2005 by Free Verse editions of Parlor Press. He was awarded a 2008 NEA Translation Fellowship.
