Cesare Pavese

CESARE PAVESE (1908–1950) was born in Piedmont, Italy. Now considered one of Italy’s most distinctive writers, he was unable to publish his creative writing during the fascist era and instead channelled his energies into translating the work of some of the greatest English-language writers into Italian.

He was imprisoned by the government in 1935, which inspired his novel The Political Prisoner, and lived with the partisans from 1943 to 1945. The bulk of his work –stories, poems and novels – appeared between 1945 and his suicide in 1950.
