Born in Sicily in 1943, Emanuel di Pasquale came to America in 1957. He earned an MA from New York University in 1966 and has been teaching college English ever since.

His published translations from the Italian include Silvio Ramat's Sharing a Trip: Selected Poems (Bordighera Press, 2001), winner of the Academy of American Poets' Raiziss/de Palchi Fellowship; Maura Del Serra's Infinite Present (co-translated with Michael Palma, 2001); and Carlo della Corte's The Journey Ends Here (2000).

In 1998, he won the Bordighera Poetry Prize for his translation of Joe Salerno's Song of the Tulip Tree. He is also the author of collections of poems in English: Writing Anew: New and Selected Poems (Bordighera Press, 2007); Escapes the Night, his second sequence of love poems (Gradiva Publications, 2001); The Silver Lake Love Poems (2000); and Genesis (1989).
