Giovanni Meli’s Don Chisciotti and Sanciu Panza

introduced and translated into English Verse by GAETANO CIPOLLA


256 pages, Illustrations by G. Vesco.

This 256 page, bi-lingual volume contains a little known masterpiece of Sicilian poetry written by the most gifted poet Sicily has produced. It is not an imitation of Cervantes, indeed, it is a work that colors the Cervantian perspective with Sicilian sensibilities. It is a re-thinking of the archtypal couple of Don Quijote and Sancho Panza written in Sicilian verse and from a Sicilian point of view.
