Cited alongside Dante and Petrarch as one of the great Italian poets, Count Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837) brought the cadences of nineteenth-century Italian to their aesthetic height; his is a voice without which the concert of European Romanticism would sound discordant and incomplete. This long-overdue reissuing of Iris Origo's classic biography comes on the heels of a series of international bicentennial symposia celebrating his work that have generated renewed American interest in Leopardi. An engaging, highly readable biographer, Origo brings us Leopardo the poet but also Leopardi the nineteeth-century romantic par excellence -- a precocious genius who had written tragedies, poetry, and philosophical treatises by the age of sixteen and who later suffered debilitating illness ("a walking sepulchre" he wrote of himself) so that hunched over and isolated by his illness, all that was left to him was his internal vision and language. Often writing to and for himself, words were his way of subverting solitude
