The Irwell Edition of the Works of Anthony Burgess

  • One of Burgess's most original works, allowing the reader to see him as novelist, poet and translator
  • Demystifies Burgess's substantial engagement with Italian culture, providing a first critical commentary on the Burgess translations
  • Provides a companion piece to Beard's Roman Women
  • Illustrates Burgess's highly creative response to the poetry of two masters: John Keats, greatest poet of the nineteenth century according to Tennyson, and Giuseppe Gioachino Belli, greatest poet of Italian literature according to Pasolini
