Giacomo Leopardi

a.k.a. Giacomo Taldegardo Francesco di Sales Saverio Pietro Leopardi

Author Code: TGLP

Born: Jun. 29, 1798 - Recanati, Italy

Died: Jun. 14, 1837 - Naples, Italy

Educated by private tutors and his father's extensive library, Leopardi was a voracious reader and taught himself Greek, French, Spanish, and Hebrew, in addition to philosophy and philology. Leopardi suffered from ill health and physical weakness his entire life. Nevertheless, he was determined to write and his early works include translations. He also became close friends with Pietro Giordani, the classicist author, who would have a strong influence on Leopardi throughout his life. During his twenties, he spent time in Rome, Bologna, Pisa, Florence and Milan. During these year he produced his Canzoni. In 1830, he produced The New Canti which was printed in Florence and gave him some income. He moved to Naples to be near a friend, but contracted cholera during an epidemic and did not recover. Leopardi is considered a national hero in Italy and one of its greatest poets. His other works include Zibaldone (1817-32), The First Canti (1818), First Idylls (1819-21), Operette Morali (1824), Last Canti (1832-37) and the incomplete Pensieri (1837).
