This book analyzes the complex figure of Renato Poggioli, the Florentine-born Slavist who emigrated to the United States in 1938 where, while at Harvard University, he was one of the founders of the discipline of Comparative Literature. These sixteen essays by historians, Slavists, Italianists and comparativists of international renown, for the first time, reconstruct the multifaceted intellectual identity of one of the most influential Italian scholars on the international scene during the forty-year period surrounding World War II.
