The Last Walk is a translation of 'L'ultima passeggiata' by Giovanni Pascoli (1855-1912), a sequence of 'madrigals' composed for Pascoli's lifelong friend and fellow poet, Severino Ferrari (1856-1905), on the occasion of Ferrari's wedding to Ida Gini in 1886. It appears in his first collection, Myriciae (1891).
This is the last collection of poems Seamus Heaney worked on before his death.
