William Fense Weaver (born 24 July ) is an English language translator of modern Italian literature. [1]Biography. William Weaver is perhaps best known for his translations of the work of Umberto Eco and Italo Calvino, and has translated many other Italian authors over the course of a career spanning more than fifty addition to prose, he has translated Italian poetry and opera. Zavattini's "Story of Caterina" puts the aesthetic manifesto to best use, hiring a single mother to perform in a re-enactment of the lowest point in her life, when the system offered her no alternative but to give up her child. The cumulative result is an intriguing time capsule of a particular time and place.

But neorealism was the expression of an entire moral or ethical philosophy, as well. William Fense Weaver (born 24 July, ) is considered the preeminent living English language translator of Italian literature. Biography. William Weaver is perhaps best known for his translations of the work of Umberto Eco and Italo Calvino, and has translated many other prominent Italian authors over the course of a career spanning more than fifty years.

Zavattini's hope of making a feature-length commercial film that would constitute a real and raw ''slice of life'' was never to be realized, of course, and perhaps that's as it should be.Achieving a nearly unprecedented level of artistic truth, 'Bicycle Thieves' brushes away all that unnecessary cinematic noise to present "life as it is."
