The Child of Pleasure free pdf Excerpt from The Child of Pleasure The novel of Gabriele d'Annunzio, here translated under the title The Child of Pleasure, was published in 1889 under the title Il Piacere. It is at my suggestion that the translator has used the excellent name used by the French translator, L'Infant de Volupte, and that she has also, while translating from the Italian, followed the arrangement of the French edition. When I was in Rome at the beginning of 1897, d'Annunzio told me that this rearrangement had been done under his own direction- and he was sorry, he said, that I had read it in Italian rather than in French. That is why I have suggested to Miss Harding that she should run the risk of being told that she has translated an Italian novel from the French, by using both the French title and the French sequence of chapters. Her translation itself I have not seen, though, at the request of the publisher, I have translated the sonnets and other verse contained in the novel into English verse. My own responsibility in the matter, therefore, begins and ends with this introduction, those verse translations, and the two suggestions which I have just mentioned. Gabriele d'Annunzio was born at Pescara, in the Abruzzi, in 1864. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
