• "Les lecteurs rompus au commerce des hommes reconnaîtront la justesse de mes propos ; tous les autres les trouveront excessifs, jusqu'au jour où l'expérience, s'ils ont jamais l'occasion de faire réellement l'expérience de la société humaine, leur ouvrira les yeux à leur tour. J'affirme que le monde n'est que l'association des coquins contre les gens de bien, des plus vils contre les plus nobles."Publiées de façon posthume en 1845, ces Pensées sur le caractère des hommes et leur conduite dans la société présentent, sous forme d'aphorismes, d'anecdotes significatives ou de sentences lapidaires, l'essentiel des conclusions léopardiennes sur la morale.

    Vers 1816, au fin fond d'une province pontificale d'Italie du Nord, un jeune homme mélancolique, pétri de lectures érudites, s'apprête sans espoir à l'« oeuvre de sa vie ». Ce jeune homme, c'est Giacomo Leopardi. Il écrit des poèmes renouant avec la plus haute tradition italienne, celle qui remonte à Pétrarque et au Tasse. En 1831 paraît la première édition des Canti.
    De la véhémence des premières canzones (À Angelo Mai, Brutus) aux méditations nocturnes des idylles (L'Infini, Le Soir du jour de fête, À la lune), en passant par les grands poèmes philosophiques (Le Genêt), le poète chante la solitude et l'exclusion, le temps répétitif et destructeur, le destin et la perte.
    Tour à tour élégiaque et révolté, nihiliste et exalté, Leopardi inaugure une forme nouvelle de lyrisme : du moi au nous, sa voix déplore au nom de tous la souffrance d'être. Ce recueil d'une noire beauté inspira des esprits aussi divers que Schopenhauer, Musset, Nietzsche et Giuseppe Ungaretti.

  • Anglais Canti

    Giacomo Leopardi

    'So my mind sinks in this immensity:
    and foundering is sweet in such a sea'Revisited and reorganized over his lifetime, this extraordinary work was described by Leopardi as a 'reliquary' for his ideas, feelings and deepest preoccupations. It encompasses drastic shifts in tone and material, and includes early personal elegies and idylls; radical public poems on history and politics; philosophical satires; his great, dark, despairing odes such as 'To Silvia'; and later masterworks such as 'The Setting of the Moon', written not long before Leopardi's death. Infused with classical allusion and nostalgia, yet disarmingly modern in their spare, meditative style and their sense of alienation and scepticism, the Canti influenced the following two centuries of Western lyric poetry, and inspired thinkers and writers from Schopenhauer and Nietzsche to Beckett and Lowell.Jonathan Galassi's direct new translation sensitively responds to the musicality of the Canti, while his introduction discusses the paradoxes of Leopardi's life and work.

  • Giacomo 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.Leopardi was also a prodigious scholar of classical literature and philosophy, and a voracious reader in numerous ancient and modern languages. For most of his writing career, he kept an immense notebook, known as the Zibaldone, or "hodgepodge," as Harold Bloom has called it, in which he put down his original, wide-ranging, radically modern responses to his reading. His comments about religion, philosophy, language, history, anthropology, astronomy, literature, poetry, and love are unprecedented in their brilliance and suggestiveness, and the Zibaldone, which was only published at the turn of the twentieth century, has been recognized as one of the foundational books of modern culture. Its 4,500-plus pages have never been fully translated into English until now, when a team led by of Michael Caesar and Franco D'Intino of the Leopardi Centre in Birmingham have spent years producing a lively, accurate version. This essential book will change our understanding of nineteenth-century culture.Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837), Italy's first and greatest modern poet, was also a critic, philosopher and philologist. His enormous Zibaldone, or philosophical and critical notebook, which many consider one of the great books of the 19th century, was published in Penguin Classics in 2013.

  • Leopardi in prosa. Il suo pensiero slegato da ritmica e struttura, la sua filosofia esente da imposizioni e limiti formali. Sono racconti di stampo ironico e riflessivo, dove la Terra dialoga con la Luna, Ercole si rende disponibile a liberare le spalle di Atlante dal peso del pianeta, Cristoforo Colombo fa due chiacchiere sulla bellezza del mondo con Pietro Gutierrez - sono tante le figure storiche e mitiche che si susseguono nelle 'Operette morali', tante come i dilemmi posti e le riflessioni suscitate. Qual è il nostro posto del mondo? Quale il nostro rapporto con la natura? È la ragione l'unica via per raggiungere la felicità?



    Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837) è stato un poeta e filosofo italiano. Considerato il massimo esponente del Romanticismo italiano, tra le sue opere ricordiamo 'Le operette morali', 'I canti' e 'Lo zibaldone'.

    Lo Zibaldone

    Giacomo Leopardi

    Lo 'Zibaldone' è un tesoro inestimabile per chiunque voglia calarsi nella vulcanica, romantica, scientifica ma anche pessimista mente di Giacomo Leopardi, uno dei più importanti autori della letteratura italiana di tutti i tempi. Eludendo ogni etichetta, lo 'Zibaldone' è un monumento autobiografico, un diario segreto, una raccolta sterminata di appunti, poesie, racconti, aforismi sorprendenti e riflessioni filosofiche di grande attualità.
