The Italian poet, philosopher, and scholar Giacomo Leopardi’s birthday is celebrated in today’s Doodle. He is regarded as one of the greatest Italian poets of the 19th century by the world.
He was born in the small provincial town of Recanati on this date in 1798. He was a voracious reader from a young age who adored spending time in his father’s library. He became conversant in Latin, old Greek, and Hebrew during this period, which established the groundwork for him to turn into a philologist — a researcher who concentrates on the set of experiences and improvement of dialects. He proceeded to interpret a few Latin and Greek works of art.
Leopardi experienced passionate feelings for thoughts from the Edification, a philosophical development that advanced explanation and rationale over notion. He became one of the most radical thinkers of his time because he was so committed to his beliefs.
At 14, he composed Pompeo in Egitto (Pompey in Egypt), a proclamation censuring quite possibly of the most remarkable figure in Rome. Before very long, he composed different philological works and outstanding sonnets, for example, L’appressamento della morte (The Methodology of Death), Inno a Nettuno (Song to Neptune), and Le rimembranze (Recollections).
Canti (Songs) and Canzoniere (Songbook), two of Leopardi’s later works of lyric poetry, dominated his output for the rest of his career. His writing often explored patriotism, unrequited love, and significant reflections on human life — making him a forerunner to Existentialism. Operette morali (Small Moral Works), a collection of witty philosophical essays written in an ironic style, was one of his final works of literature.
Happy 225th birthday, Giacomo Leopardi!
