Salvatore Quasimodo (1901-1968): Critic, poet, translator, from Sicily (ITALY); Winner of 1959 Nobel Prize in Literature; and extremely difficult author to summarize, yet of a Science Fictional flavor due to his originally being educated as an Engineer, his uniquely fantastic hermetic obsessions with death in the borderline between solipsism and a moral conception of the cosmos, his fascinations with (and translations of) the great fantasy authors Dante, Homer, Virgil, Shakespeare, and Conrad Aiken Return to Romance Authors Qu Table of Contents Return to ROMANCE AUTHORS Table of Contents
