Marco Fazzini

Marco Fazzini has written and edited articles and books on postcolonial literatures, and translated into Italian some of the major English-language contemporary poets, including Hugh MacDiarmid, Norman MacCaig and Edwin Morgan. He is also the editor of Alba Literaria (2005), the first history of Scottish literature to be published outwith Scotland. His latest books reflect on poetry and songwriting, on translation, and on meetings with poets (Conversations with Scottish Poets, 2015, and The Saying of It, 2017).
