Pascal D'Angelo
Pasquale (Pascal) D’Angelo (born in the town of Introdacqua, Italy and died in New York in 1931) came to the U.S. at the age of 16. He worked as a labourer under brutal conditions but was determined to remain. In 1919, he decided to become a poet. His poems were published in important literary journals such as The Bookman, Century, Current Opinion, Literary Digest, The Literary Review, The Nation, The New York Times, The New York Tribune, The Saturday Review of Literature, The Springfield Republican. In 1924, he published with Macmillan his autobiography Son of Italy: the autobiography of Pascal D’Angelo. To this day, it continues to be considered the first work in English by an Italian immigrant who arrived in the U.S. without education or knowledge of the language. He died in 1932 from complications from appendicitis and was interred in Brooklyn.
