A translation and critical edition of Towards the River’s Mouth (Verso la foce), a late 20th-century philosophical travelogue by Italian author and filmmaker Gianni Celati.

I seek support for a critical edition of Italian writer and filmmaker Gianni Celati’s 1989 philosophical travelogue Towards the River’s Mouth (Verso la foce), consisting of my translation of the text from Italian to English accompanied by a scholarly introduction, a selection of key theoretical essays by Celati translated into English, a selection of reviews and essays by Italian scholars and writers translated into English, and a selection of additional scholarly essays by prominent figures in comparative literature and Italian studies. The book will also feature careful annotations and a bibliography. It will bring to English-language audiences not only a key work of one of Italy’s most influential living writers, but also a valuable body of additional primary and secondary sources. With an advance contract recently offered by Lexington Books, this project will be a major contribution to Italian studies and to the environmental humanities whose results will be widely disseminated.
