These translations of the major poems of Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837) render into modern English the work of a writer who is widely regarded as the greatest lyric poet in the Italian literary tradition. With themes of mutability, landscape, and love paralleling an attitude of unflinching realism, readers will find Leopardi's poems a unique amalgam of philosophical toughness and the lyrically bittersweet.
