|My Bio||Lucia Victoria Leone is a published author with a special interest in semiotics of arts, existential philosophy, theater of absurd, comparative literature, and poetry translations. Her other currently available literary work, "Sweat and Tears" (http://www.amazon.com/Sweat-Tears-Lucia-Leone/dp/1439264554) is a profound, burlesque stage play that takes place in an absurd, but nonetheless familiar world. She enjoys writing, acting, and teaching. She also has a background in medical research and health systems management.|
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
Still working on my poetry translations and hoping to add more content to the existing book, which I will present to you as a new and more complete edition.|
I'm also becoming increasingly interested in the topic of French revolution and publishing short essays on various subjects that are near and dear to my heart. I'm yet to see what will become of all these "brewing" ideas. :-)
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
Well, here are some, though not all, of my most favorite authors and artists:|
Writers: Goethe, Samuel Beckett, Eugene Ionesko, Mikhail Bulgakov, Daniil Harms, Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
Poets: those I've chosen for my book of translations that is now being offered on this website (surprise! ;-).
Artists: Edit Piaf, Charles Aznavour, Dalida, Elena Kamburova, Juliette Greco.
Film makers: Andrei Tarkovsky, Luchino Visconti, Louis Bunuel, Marcel Carne, Federico Fellini.
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
"The Leopard" by Guiseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa (1957) is a brilliant novel that was later used as literary base for Luchino Visconti's film with the same title (1963). It was the work of Tomasi's life. Unfortunately, his dream of seeing it published while he was still alive did not come to pass. |
The film is fairly well known in the United States, but it appears that few have read the book. I highly recommend it because it is genuine, profound, and refined.
