This revised and expanded edition of the only English-language dictionary of Italian literature provides some 400 alphabetically arranged entries on Italian writers, periods, literary movements, and versification, and on critical problems related to literary history. The volume covers Italian literature from the Middle Ages to the present and includes a number of new entries for contemporary writers. The entries, written by expert contributors, include current bibliographical information and have often been updated to reflect new scholarship. Unlike most Italian dictionaries, this book is aimed specifically at the English-language market and provides copious information on English translations as well as a guide to Italian literature in comparative contexts. Entries are arranged alphabetically and include extensive cross-references. Each entry provides a basic identification of the term, followed by a more extensive discussion of the term's background and significance. A bibliography concludes each entry, and citations reflect the most current general works on the topic. Unlike most Italian dictionaries, this volume is aimed specifically at the user whose primary language is English. All Italian titles have been translated, and the entries provide copious information on English translations of Italian works. Appendices trace the chronological development of Italian literature and place it within the larger context of world literature, history, and culture.

"[L]ike its predecessor, this edition provides clear, concise bibliographies that attempt to place major and minor Italian authors within a broad cultural context. . . . Each entry concludes with a brief bibliography of primary works, including English translations, and selected works of criticism; particular attention has been given to updating these bibliographies. Most entries are written by the editors; others are written and signed by experts whose credentials are fully described. . . . Recommended for all academic and larger public libraries." - Choice
