About the author (1988)

Born in and fervently attached to Rome, Mario Praz (1896-1982) was Italy's pre-eminent scholar and translator of English during the last century. His books, especially those connecting Romantic literature and visual art, cannot be ignored by anyone interested in modernist theory. Yet, as Edmund Wilson highlights, "To think of Praz as primarily an English expert and literary critic is to misconstrue his role. . . . His activities as a collector are as much a part of his oeuvre as his books. . . . He is an

artist and a unique personality.
