    Leopardi hated Recanati and made several unsuccessful attempts to leave the village. In 1822, Leopardi got a chance to escape to Rome which was an immense disappointment since he was unable to find a suitable job due to his physical disabilities. Giacomo returned home and later travelled around Italy. Love struck him in Florence and this fruitless affair gave birth to some of his most grief-stricken poetry. Throughout his life, Leopardi struggled to support himself financially through writing but poverty forced him to depend on aid from his friends. Giacomo’s lifelong sufferings included a broken heart, depression and declining health. He died of a heart failure in 1837.

    Born on June 29,1798 in Recanati, a small isolated village in Italy, he was the son of Count Monaldo Leopardi, the last aristocrat in Italy to wear a sword. Count Monaldo held interest in philosophy, politics and literature and owned a personal library with books on these subjects. He was keen to provide his son the best of education and turn him into a classical scholar. It is for this reason that Gianco studied from expensive private tutors and was a proficient in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, English, French, and Spanish. Leopardi led a very secluded and tedious childhood. While his family was extremely religious, Leopardi’s liberal views worried them. Due to extensive reading and writing, Leopardi developed a deformity in his spine and his vision deteriorated to an extent where one of his eyes lost sight completely.

    Remembered for his intensely pessimistic attitude towards the human condition and life, Giacomo Leopardi was a significant figure of the Italian Romanticism era. His talents not limited to a single domain associated him to several fields of art. Giacomo Leopardi was a notable poet, philosopher, scholar, essayist and philologist. Although Leopardi did not attain the fame he deserved in his lifetime, he was later declared the greatest Italian poet of the nineteenth century. Leopardi’s seven volume notebook Zibaldone is considered the finest and is also the most appreciated of his works.

Best Poem of Count Giacomo Leopardi

Night Song Of A Wandering Shepherd In Asia

What doest thou in heaven, O moon?
Say, silent moon, what doest thou?
Thou risest in the evening; thoughtfully
Thou wanderest o'er the plain,
Then sinkest to thy rest again.
And art thou never satisfied
With going o'er and o'er the selfsame ways?
Art never wearied? Dost thou still
Upon these valleys love to gaze?
How much thy life is like
The shepherd's life, forlorn!
He rises in the early dawn,
He moves his flock along the plain;
The selfsame flocks, and streams, and herbs
He sees again;
Then drops to rest, the day's work o'er;
And hopes for ...

L'Infinito

Sempre caro mi fu quest'ermo colle
E questa siepe che da tanta parte
De'l ultimo orrizonte il guarde esclude.
Ma sedendo e mirando interminati
Spazi di la da quella, e sovrumani
Silenzi, e profondissima quiete,
Io nel pensier mi fingo, ove per poco
Il cor non si spaura. E come il vento
Odo stormir tra queste piante, io quello
