Examination of conscience of a man of letters, followed by the last letters from the field

Description

Renato Serra’s Soul-Searching of a Man of Letters views war as a duty, but recognises it can change neither the world nor literature.

Serra was director of the Cesena Public Library and studied at the University of Bologna, where he was a disciple of the poet Giosuè Carducci, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1906 and professor of Italian Literature. Serra died in 1915 in battle, at the age of 31.
