Lucia Victoria Leone


I am a published author with a special interest in semiotics of arts, existential philosophy, theater of absurd, and comparative literature. I particularly enjoy writing, acting, and teaching, and have a professional background in medical research and health systems management.

The book that I'm now offering to your attention is a collection of English translations from select Russian poetry. A thoughtfully designed biligual edition, this work reflects my belief that languages cannot be separated from their cultural and historical contexts. And poetry, to me, is the most beautiful and meaningful way to express and connect these complex, if not infinite, universes.

My other currently available literary work, "Sweat and Tears" ( is a profound, burlesque stage play that takes place in an absurd, but nonetheless familiar world. The play was inspired by my love for existential philosophy: "One must imagine Sisyphus happy." Albert Camus.
