Vittorio Sereni's Poetry and Prose
This publication contains the largest selection of Vittorio Sereni’s poetry and prose published to date, along with an introduction, a table of dates, a commentary, and a full bibliography. There are also sixteen black and white illustrations showing the author at various stages in his life, some of the original covers to his books, and a few manuscript pages. It is the culmination of some twenty-six years’ work on the part of Marcus Perryman and myself. The cover shows a detail (through the window behind Jesus’s head) from Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper in Milan.
