Product Description

Product Description

Giacomo Leopardi è ritenuto il maggior poeta dell’Ottocento italiano e una delle più importanti figure della letteratura mondiale, e la profondità della sua riflessione sull’esistenza e sulla condizione umana ne fa anche un filosofo di notevole spessore. La straordinaria qualità lirica della sua poesia lo ha reso un protagonista centrale nel panorama letterario e culturale europeo e internazionale, con ricadute che vanno molto oltre la sua epoca.
Troviamo qui alcune delle poesie più belle, più conosciute ed amate della letteratura italiana, come L'infinito, Il passero solitario, Il sabato del villaggio, La sera del dì di festa, Canto notturno di un pastore errante dell'Asia...
Nel libro la biografia di Giacomo Leopardi, e note critiche sulla sua poetica, sul pessimismo Leopardiano e sulle sue opere.

Giacomo Leopardi is considered the greatest Italian poet of the nineteenth century and one of the most important figures of world literature. The depth of his reflection on the human condition and existence makes him a philosopher of considerable thickness. The extraordinary lyrical quality of his poetry played a central role in the literary landscape and cultural European and international level, with implications that go far beyond his age.
Although he lived in a secluded town in ultra-conservative Stato della Chiesa, he came in touch with the main thoughts of Enlightenment, and, by his own literary evolution, created a remarkable and renowned poetic work, related to the Romantic movement, which makes him one of the greatest poets of modern Italy.
Here are some of the most beautiful, famous and beloved poems of Italian literature, such as L'infinito, Il passero solitario, Il sabato del villaggio, La sera del dì di festa, Canto notturno di un pastore errante dell'Asia...
In the book, the biography of Giacomo Leopardi, and critical notes on his poetry, on Leopardi's pessimism and on his works.
