INSCRIBED BY WOODWARD: "My dear -- Forgive me for sending you a gift which you may probably look at as a burden. But Hill liked it, & that goes a long way. Anyway the original contains some of the finest work that D'Annunzio ever did. So forgive, Yours ever, W.H.W.". *** GABRIELE D/ANNUNZIO, 1863-1938, Italian poet, dramatist, short-story writer, journalist, military hero, and political leader, one of the most prolific and controversial writers of the turn of the twentieth century and of the Fascist era. *** D'Annunzio's greatest play was "La Figlia di Iorio"[performed 1904; first English translation, "The Daughter of Jorio" in 1907], a powerful poetic drama of the fears and superstitions of Abruzzi peasants.
