    1. Negli anni del passaggio dal liceo all universit era la prima parte consistente della mia antologia poetica personale.Versi riletti, ridetti, risentiti, riscritti, rimuginati, rivissuti, rifiutati, reinventati.A SilviaLa quiete dopo la tempestaIl sabato del villaggioA se stessoUltimo canto di SaffoL infinitoIl passero solitarioLa sera del d di festaAlla lunaCanto notturno di un pastore errante dell Asia


    2. This poetry collection was a little bit out of the ordinary for me I usually read poems in fits and starts, savoring them as I go along with other things, and sometimes a collection can take much longer to work through than you would think And I don t always read about the poet while I am reading the poems, unless I am stumped for any idea of what they are trying to say When I was setting this title up on my currently reading shelf I noticed a review which said the poems were very depressing I t [...]


    3. Da ragazzina Leopardi stata una vera e preziosa scoperta Mentre i compagni di classe si annoiavano, lo sbeffeggiavano, ridevano della sua vita, io dalla prima lettura della prima poesia, l ho subito sentito dentro, mi ha smosso qualcosa di profondo proprio nel cuore Ancora adesso le sue poesie mi affascinano, mi commuovono, le sento risuonare nell anima Versi eccelsi, musicali, capaci di evocare immagini di una potenza straordinaria, presi per da una vita quotidiana semplice e dura allo stesso t [...]


    4. O INFINITO Cara me foi sempre esta erma colinaE esta sebe, que por diversos ladosO extremo do horizonte veda ao meu olhar.Mas, sentado e olhando, intermin veisEspa os para al m dela, e sobre humanosSil ncios, e sossego profund ssimo No pensamento imagino ent o por pouco O cora o se n o sobressalta E, quando o ventoNas folhas ou o sussurrar, aqueleInfinito sil ncio a esta vozVou comparando e lembro me do eterno,E das mortas esta es, e da que agora passaE vive, do seu rumor Assim no meioDesta imen [...]


    5. Odi et amo quare id faciam, fortasse requiris nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior CatullusOrnate and often dreamlike, experiencing Canti is like exploring the Hellenistic ruins Leopardi was so fond of splendorous in youth, now turned barren by time.Masterfully tuned in both style and evocation, you can see why Nietzsche called Leopardi one of the four finest prose stylists of the 19th century, and indeed one of Italy s greatest poets Though known for his pessimism, this wasn t due to personal [...]


    6. Leopardi aveva una sensibilit ed un genio unici, il suo lascito questa splendida raccolta in cui si interroga sui grandi quesiti dell esistenza umana Le sue poesie son tutte meritevoli ma tra le pi belle, secondo me, spicca il Canto notturno di un pastore errante dell Asia Che fai tu, luna, in ciel dimmi, che fai,Silenziosa luna Sorgi la sera, e vai,Contemplando i deserti indi ti posi.Ancor non sei tu pagaDi riandare i sempiterni calli Ancor non prendi a schivo, ancor sei vagaDi mirar queste val [...]

If you love poetry, why haven t your read this book If you answer that you have never heard of its author Giacomo Leopardi , after visiting this page, you no longer have that excuse Once in a very great while we read something that changes our life and this, dear friend, is one of those books Sincerest congratulations to John Galassi for his wonderful translations and very helpful notes His suggestion that a newcomer should begin with the idylls is well heeded However, the bays and laurels are L [...]


    8. Srtange how reading for pleasure changes everything I hated Leopardi growing up, having to study him in school I thought of him as a loner, even a looser I was wrong he was a smart man, way ahead of his time, who had a magic way with words.




    9. In this seemingly good English translation of Mr Townsend, we get a rare look at Italian syntax which is unseen in English Take a look at the following poem To The SpringNow that the sun the faded charmsOf heaven again restores,And gentle zephyr the sick air revives,And the dark shadows of the cloudsAre put to flight,And birds their naked breasts confideUnto the wind, and the soft light,With new desire of love, and with new hope,The conscious beasts, in the deep woods,Amid the melting frosts, in [...]


    10. Un magnifique recueil de po sies que j ai d couvert bien trop tard Leopardi donne une toute autre dimension au moi romantique Les premiers chants sont des odes l Italie, o les r f rences l histoire antique sont nombreuse on reconna t l les passions et tudes de Leopardi Ce que j ai aim de ce recueil, en plus du de l volution, de la v h mence patriotique aux idylles amoureuses, c est la capacit , ou plut t le g nie de l auteur a avoir su rendre universel les sentiments de l amour, de la solitude e [...]

    14. Leopardi feels like a pure drop in an ocean of noise I highly recommended him to those who want some antidote to contemporary art, contemporary poetry, e love affairs and one night stands, shalowness, foolishness, irony An antidote to living in the city too Compared to French XIX century poets, Leopardi sounds like a man from the XVI century or even from Dante s times, and, paradoxically or not, that s what makes him great Leopardi wrote like an alien, indeed A loose translation that I hope will [...]


    15. A se stesso Or poserai per sempre, stanco mio cor Per l inganno estremo, ch eterno io mi credei Per Ben sento, in noi di cari inganni, non che la speme, il desiderio spento Posa per sempre Assai palpitasti Non val cosa nessuna i moti tuoi, n di sospiri degna la terra Amaro e noia la vita, altro mai nulla e fango il mondo T acqueta omai Dispera l ultima volta Al gener nostro il fato non don che il morire Omai disprezza te, la natura, il brutto poter che, ascoso, a comun danno impera, e l infinita [...]


    16. These solitary hills have always been dear to me.Seated here, this sweet hedge, which blocks the distant horizon opening inner silences and interminable distances I plunge in thought to where my heart, frightened, pulls back.Like the wind which I hear tossing the trembling plants which surround me, a voice from the inner depths of spirit shakes the certitudes of thought.Eternity breaks through time, past and present intermingle in her image In the inner shadows I lose myself, drowning in the sea [...]


    17. Il viaggio poetico nella nevrosi urbana prima ancora che nasca il mondo industrializzato occidentale, una ricerca disperata di s , un senso di disorientamento totale, una vita che sembra non valga la pena di essere vissuta se non per raccontare la sua caoticit a chi si accinge a vivere, appunto Nemmeno Leopardi sa cosa volere e cosa cercare, e le sue poesie costringono la nostra mente a prendere coscienza che in realt nessuno di noi sa cosa vuole n cosa cerca.


    18. Non credo esistano parole adatte ad esprimere adeguatamente la bellezza di questi componimenti.Ogni volta che leggo questa raccolta mi lascio trasportare in un universo quasi magico, onirico, da cui difficile distaccarsi e completamente impossibile non lasciarsi coinvolgere almeno un po Leggere i componimenti di Giacomo Leopardi mi fa sentire viva.


    19. Read in Dutch translation Very cumbersome and dark undertone Some gems XIX to Count Carlo Pepoli life doesn t make sense, but we try to live it is a program poem XXV on Saturdays in the village beautiful, restrained description, with wistful undertone XXVI the overriding thought perfect ode to love, in this valley of tears much cordial and brisk than all other poems together


    20. Wild BroomFragrant broom,content with deserts here on the arid slope of Vesuvius,that formidable mountain, the destroyer,that no other tree or flower adorns,you scatter your lonelybushes all around I ve seen beforehow you beautify empty placeswith your stems, circling the Cityonce the mistress of the world,and it seems that with their grave,silent, aspect they bear witness,reminding the passer byof that lost empire.Now I see you again on this soil,a lover of sad places abandoned by the world,a f [...]


    21. EppureIl Leopardi un ricordo lontano del resto l istituzione scolastica italiana propone campioni sparsi qua e l di autori italiani Ed in effetti a distanza di tanto tempo mi scopro ancora meno interessato alla sua figura e alle sue produzioni, per altro curiose poesie volte alla classicit , poesie d a per cos dire , il pessimismo uno come l austriaco Bernhard ne avrebbe da ridire etc etc Deve essere stato assolutamente un caso singolare per uno come Giacomo Leopardi, essere costretto dalla sua [...]


    22. This solitary hill has always been dear to meAnd this hedge, which prevents me from seeing most ofThe endless horizon.But when I sit and gaze, I imagine, in my thoughtsEndless spaces beyond the hedge,An all encompassing silence and a deeply profound quiet,To the point that my heart is almost overwhelmed.And when I hear the wind rustling through the treesI compare its voice to the infinite silence.And eternity occurs to me, and all the ages past,And the present time, and its sound.Amidst this imm [...]


    23. I really wanted to like this I bought it in Rome, for way too much, just because I wanted to be reading an Italian poet while traveling in Italy And I love weighty, gloomy misanthropes I have been in thrall to Nietzsche for a decade, I dig Schopenhauer my taste in songwriters skews towards wordy, pensive loners But this dude is just petulant Perhaps a lot is lost translating him out of Italian in English, there are some lovely images here and there, and some really interesting musings and connec [...]


    24. A fantastic edition of Leopardi s best, recounting all of his major life events in a clear, linear fashion which matches the chronological presentation of his poems so that the reader will always understand what feelings are moving him to write and under what circumstances.




    25. The Last Song Of Sappho Leopardi Thou tranquil night, and thou, O gentle rayOf the declining moon and thou, that o erThe rock appearest, mid the silent grove,The messenger of day how dear ye were,And how delightful to these eyes, while yetUnknown the furies, and grim Fate But now,No gentle sight can soothe this wounded soul.Then, only, can forgotten joy revive,When through the air, and o er the trembling fieldsThe raging south wind whirls its clouds of dust And when the car, the pondrous car of [...]
