This series is conceived as a library of bilingual editions of works chosen for their importance to Italian literature and to the international tradition of art and thought Italy has nurtured. In each volume an Italian text in an authoritative edition is paired with a new facing-page translation supplemented by explanatory notes and a selected bibliography.   An introduction provides a historical and critical interpretation of the work. The scholars preparing these volumes hope through Biblioteca ltaliana to point a straight way to the Italian classics.   GENERAL EDITOR: Louise George Clubb EDITORIAL BOARD Paul J. Alpers, Vittore Branca Gene Brucker, Fredi Chiappelli Phillip W. Damon, Robert M. Durling Gianfranco Folena, Lauro Martines Nicolas J. Perella
