(4.) Primo Levi, Collected Poetry, translated by Ruth Feldman and Brian Swann (London: Faber & Faber, 1988), p.

Unfortunately, the contributors could not integrate in their bibliographical references the recently published collection of Levi's Complete Works, edited by Ann Goldstein, which went into print the year immediately following the publication of Approaches to Teaching the Works of Primo Levi.
