Canti by Giacomo Leopardi( Book )

1,275 editions published between 1831 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 4,697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giacomo Leopardi is Italy's greatest modern poet, the first European writer to portray and examine the self in a way that feels familiar to us today. A great classical scholar and patriot, he explored metaphysical loneliness in entirely original ways. Though he died young, his influence was enormous, and it is no exaggeration to say that all modern poetry, not only in Italian, derives in some way from his work. Galassi, whose translations of Eugenio Montale have been widely acclaimed, has produced a strong, fresh, direct version of this great poet that offers English-language readers a new approach to Leopardi
The moral essays = Operette morali by Giacomo Leopardi( Book )

391 editions published between 1827 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Newly awakened interest in Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837), arguably the greatest Italian poet since the Renaissance, has resulted in this project to translate a major portion of his works. This volume is the first of four which will encompass the great Canti (in bilingual text), selections from the poet's correspondence, a substantial portion of his enormous intellectual journal, the Zibaldone, and the focus of the present volume, the Operette morali. Originally planned as a set of dialogues in the manner of Lucian, the Operette is a compilation of brief, interrelated works on questions of moral philosphy. By means of numerous characters, and by means of a range of styles, Leopardi grapples with a theory of pleasure, the concepts of fame, the infinite, human happiness, the function of poetry, and other topics. In the poet's own opinion, the Operette represented his major philosophical speculation and ranked just below his Canti
Zibaldone by Giacomo Leopardi( Book )

160 editions published between 1898 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giacomo Leopardi was the greatest Italian poet of the nineteenth century and was recognized by readers from Nietzsche to Beckett as one of the towering literary figures in Italian history. To many, he is the finest Italian poet after Dante. He was also a prodigious scholar of classical literature and philosophy, and a voracious reader in numerous ancient and modern languages. For most of his writing career, he kept an immense notebook, known as the Zibaldone, in which Leopardi put down his original, wide-ranging, radically modern responses to his reading"--

Discorso sopra lo stato presente dei costumi deglétaliani by Giacomo Leopardi( Book )

44 editions published between 1988 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Discourse on the present state of the Italian customs, written by the twenty-six Giacomo Leopardi in 1824 and published only in 1906, puts at the center the disgust of Italian society, lacking a shared moral sensitivity and plastered in the memory of a past now definitively delivered to history. In these pages, Leopardi does not make profession of progression, but he photographs the mediocre reality of his time, which oscillates between the nostalgia for the ancient splendor of the southern civilization to which he belonged, and the inability to keep up with the northern modernity. After almost two hundred years from the composition of the Discourse, the evils reported by Leopardi are still all present and perhaps even more serious. Italy, drunk with its glorious past, seems incapable of the future. It is relegated to the appearance, on the scene, to the south of the world, a province, an ancient place destined irremediably to perish under the weight of its ancestral vices."--
