Leonardo Sciascia’s “Fables from the Dictatorship” in English translation

Favole della dittatura

On the initiative of the Italian Cultural Institutes of Edinburgh, Dublin and London, Leonardo Sciascia’s “Favole della dittatura“, published in 1950, will soon be available in an English-language version. It was decided to publish an English-language version to mark the centenary of the birth of this prestigious Italian anti-fascist writer, essayist and playwright.

The English-language version, translated by Ann Goldstein, will be entitled “Fables from the Dictatorship”, and will be presented  in English, on 30 November, by the Italian Cultural Institute in Dublin, as a special event on Zoom.

During the event, the historical and linguistic context of “Fables from the Dictatorship” will be illustrated by illustrious writers and scholars including Joe Farrell – who has written an introduction to the “Fables” – Mark Chu, Enrica Maria Ferrara, Cormac Ó Cuilleanáin, and Serena Todesco. This will be followed by a reading of excerpts, by Ann Goldstein.
