Reto Rossetti

Reto Rossetti

Reto Rossetti (born 11 April 1909, died 20 September 1994 in the British Gosport) was an Esperantist professor. He was Italian-Swiss and retained his nationality, although he lived all his life in Britain. His professional career as a teacher in art colleges culminated as Head of the art education department at Bristol university. His elder brother was Cezaro Rossetti, author of "Kredu min, sinjorino!" ("Believe me, Ma'am!").

Creative life

His poetry appeared in the compendious work, "Kvaropo" ("Foursome"). Poems by Rossetti used to appear in the Esperanto (newspaper) press.

With his brother, Cezaro Rossetti (Caesar) he wrote and illustrated 'The Moc Gonnogal' - a collection of poems written as a spoof on the work of the Scottish poet William McGonnogal.

His other works are: "Mestizo de l' Mondo" ("Mestizo of the World"), a collection of poems; "El la Maniko" ("Out of my Sleeve"); and "Pinta krajono" ("Sharp Pencil"), a collection of novellas. His main translation is "Otelo" ("Othello") by Shakespeare. Rossetti did many translations from English poetry. He was the editor and main collaborator on the "Angla Antologio".

Three of his works are on William Auld's " [ Basic Esperanto Reading List] ":"El la maniko", "33 Rakontoj", "Pinta krajono".
