    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 182.00

    Taboos are expressive indicators of the location of a society in its cultural history.

    Contemporary with the Romantic generation, peer of Keats, Holderlin, and Goethe, and forerunner of Valéry and Pound, Ugo Foscolo is nevertheless little known outside Italy.

The first known prose... more...
