A groundbreaking translation of the epic work of one of the great minds of the nineteenth century
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. (Jonathan Galassi’s translation of Leopardi’s Canti was published by FSG in 2010.)
