Study day on d’Annunzio confirmed

Gabriele0001Gabriele d’Annunzio would doubtless have been delighted by the fact that a study day is taking place to review recent critical activity on his literary output. I am working with Professor Giuliana Pieri of Royal Holloway, London University, to organise this event at the British Library and the date has been confirmed for Friday 4 October, 2013.

It is hoped that Lucy Hughes-Hallett, author of the new d’Annunzio biography The Pike, will speak and I will be curating and performing an evening concert, to include a performance of Madrigali dell’Estate by Stephen McNeff, which sets to music d’Annunzio’s poems of the same name.

More details to follow soon.
