Poetry. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the Italian by Giuseppe Leporace and Deborah Woodward. Amelia Rosselli, whose heroic, anti-fascist father was assassinated by Mussolini's henchmen when she was seven years old, grew up in the cities of Europe and in America as the "daughter with a devastated heart." In fierce and incandescent verse that draws upon the French and English she learned in exile, Rosselli expresses the pain, irony and deep emotion of a traumatized spirit; she committed suicide in 1996.
