Research Abstract
James T. Chiampi, Professor of Italian, who established his scholarly reputation with essays on The Divine Comedy and on the Renaissance epic (Poliziano, Ariosto, and Tasso), in recent years has turned his attention to both the modern novel and to the writings of Primo Levi. On the latter he has published two articles which have appeared in Romanic Review and in MLN Italian Issue and is currently at work on a third on the theme of "la zona grigia" in Levi's writing. Professor Chiampi received his undergraduate degree from Fordham College and his M.Phil. and Ph.D. from Yale University. He is a former fellow of the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa.
