He reevokes images, memories and moments of past happiness. In "Love and Death", love was still considered a good thing because when you are in love you have stronger feelings, you feel alive in an always new way.

What could possibly be its purpose since it is necessarily finite? What is the first cause of all being? But the moon, as the sheep-herder learns quickly, cannot provide the answers to these questions even if it knew them, since such is nature: The sheep-herder's search for sense and happiness continues all the way to the final two strophes. In the fourth, the sheep-herder turns to his flock, observing how the lack of self-awareness that each sheep has allows it to live out, in apparent tranquillity, its brief existence, without suffering or boredom.
But this idea is ultimately rejected by the sheep-herder himself in the final strophe, in which he admits that, probably, in whatever form life is born and manifests itself, whether moon, sheep or man, whatever it is capable of doing, life is equally bleak and tragic. In this period, Leopardi's relations with his family are reduced to a minimum and he is constrained to maintain himself on his own financially. In , after sixteen months of "notte orribile" awful night , he accepted a generous offer from his Tuscan friends, which enabled him to leave Recanati.
Last Canti — [ edit ] In the last canti, philosophical investigation predominates, with the exception of Tramonto della Luna "Decline of the Moon" which is a decisive return to idyllic lyricism. Il pensiero dominante[ edit ] In , Leopardi wrote Il pensiero dominante "The Dominating Thought" , which exalts love as a living or vitalizing force in itself, even when it is unrequited.
The poem, however, features only the desire for love without the joy and the vitalizing spirit and, therefore, remaining thought, illusion. Leopardi destroys everything, condemns everything, but wishes to save love from the universal miasma and protect it at least within the profundity of his own soul.
The more desolate the solitude which surrounds him, the more tightly he grasps onto love as the faith in his idealized, illusory, eternal woman "sua donna" who placates suffering, disillusion and bitterness.
The poet of universal suffering sings of a good which surpasses the ills of life and, for an instant, seems to become the singer of a possible happiness.
But the idea of death as the only hope for man returns, since the world offers only two beautiful things: Il pensiero dominante represents the first ecstatic moment of love, which almost nullifies the awareness of human unhappiness. It is worth the price of tolerating the suffering of a long life in order to experience the joy of such beauty. Il pensiero dominante and Il risorgimento are the only poems of joy written by Leopardi, though even in those two poems there always reappears, inextinguishable, the pessimism which sees in the object of joy a vain image created by the imagination.
Amore e Morte[ edit ] The concept of the love-death duality is taken up again in the canto Amore e Morte "Love and Death". It is a meditation on the torment and annihilation which accompanies love. Love and death, in fact, are twins: Love makes strong and cancels the fear of death and when it dominates the soul, it makes it desire death. Some, who are won over by passion, will die for it happily.
Others kill themselves because of the wounds of love. But happiness consists in dying in the drunkenness of passion. Of the two twins, Leopardi dares to invoke only death, which is no longer symbolized by the horrid Ade of Saffo, but by a young virgin who grants peace for eternity.
Death is the sister of love and is the great consoler who, along with her brother, is the best that the world can offer. Consalvo obtains a kiss from the woman he has long loved unrequitedly only when, gravely injured, he is at the point of death. Consalvo is different from the other canti in that it has the form of a novella in verse or of a dramatic scene.
It is the fruit of the sentimental and languid literature which characterized much of the romanticism outside of Italy. Aspasia[ edit ] Written in , Aspasia emerges, like Consalvo, from the painful experience of desperate and unrequited love for Fanny Targioni Tozzetti.
Aspasia-Fanny is the only real woman represented in the poetry of Leopardi. Aspasia is the able manipulator whose perfect body hides a corrupt and prosaic soul. She is the demonstration that beauty is dishonest. The poet, vainly searching for love, takes his revenge on destiny and the women who have rejected him, above all Targioni, whose memory continues to disturb the poet after more than a year away from her.
The memory of the woman loved in vain constantly returns, but the canto, inspired by disdain for the provocative and, simultaneously, distancing behavior of the woman also expresses resignation to one's fate and the pride of having been able to recover one's own independence. Aspasia, in her limitedness as a woman cannot grasp the profundity of masculine thought.
A se stesso[ edit ] "A se stesso" To himself is an canto in which Leopardi talks to his heart. The last deceit, love, is dead too. He thought that love was one of the few things that makes life worth living but he changed his mind after his beloved Fanny's refusal. She, moreover, was in love with Antonio Ranieri, Leopardi's best friend, who remained with the poet until the end. His desire, his hope, his "sweet deceits" are ended.
His heart has beaten all his life but it's time for it to stop beating and staying still. There is no place for hope anymore. All he wants is dying, because death is the only good gift nature has given to human beings. In "Love and Death", love was still considered a good thing because when you are in love you have stronger feelings, you feel alive in an always new way. Now he has become skeptical also about love, because if he can't have Fanny, nothing remains for him in life.
He just wants to die, to make all the suffering end. Death is a gift as it is the end of all human pain, which is inevitable because it's in the essence of men, it's in the cruel project of nature. Sopra un bassorilievo antico sepolcrale[ edit ] Pietro Tenerani: Monument to Clelia Severini , which inspired the poem. In the canto Sopra un bassorilievo antico sepolcrale "Over an Ancient Sepulchre Bas-relief" , a young woman has died and is represented in the act of saying goodbye to her loved ones.
The poet weighs the pros and cons of death, remaining in doubt about whether the young woman's destiny is good or bad. Leopardi, even while being highly conscious of the indifference of nature, never ceased entirely to love it. In these verses, the poet poses challenging and pointed questions to nature, enumerating the ills and sufferings which, because of death, are inflicted on humanity. Under the influence of love, the poet had apparently found happiness at least in death Il pensiero dominante, Amore e morte.
Now, instead, even this last illusion has fallen and he sees nothing but unhappiness everywhere. Sopra il ritratto di una bella donna[ edit ] Sopra il ritratto di una bella donna scolpito nel monumento sepolcrale della medesima "On the portrait of a beautiful woman sculpted in her sepulchral monument" is basically an extension of the above.
The poet, drawing his inspiration from a funerary sculpture, evokes the image of a beautiful woman and compares her breathtaking beauty to the heart-rendingly sad image that she has become; one that is no more than mud, dust and skeleton.
As well as being centred on the transience of beauty and of human things, the poem points to the specular antinomy between human ideals and natural truth. Leopardi does not deny—if anything, he emphasizes—the beauty of the human species in general, and by the end of the poem extends his point to all possible forms of beauty, intellectual as well as aesthetic.
However, this universal beauty remains unattainable to a human nature that is nothing but "polvere e ombra" "dust and shadow" , and that may touch—but never possess—the ideals that it perceives, remaining rooted to the natural world in which it was born, as well as to its demands.
The poem consists of verses and uses free strophes of hendecasyllables and septuplets as its meter. It is the longest of all the Canti and has an unusual beginning. In fact, among all the Leopardian canti only this one begins with a scene of desolation, to be followed by an alternation between the enchantment of the panorama and of the starry night sky.
On the literary level, it is the maximum realization of that anti-idyllic "new poetic" with which Leopardi had already experimented from the s. Leopardi, after having described the nothingness of the world and of man with respect to the universe; after having lamented the precariousness of the human condition threatened by the capriciousness of nature, not as exceptional evils but as continuous and constant; and after having satirized the arrogance and the credulity of man, who propounds ideas of progress and hopes, even while knowing he is mortal, to render himself eternal, concludes with the observation that reciprocal solidarity is the only defence against the common enemy which is nature see Operette morali, "Dialogo di Plotino e Porfirio".
In this canto, in which Leopardi expresses his vast thought about mankind, history, and nature, autobiographical elements can be found: The humble plant of ginestra , living in desolate places without surrendering to the force of Nature, resembles this ideal man, who rejects any illusions about himself and does not invoke from Heaven or Nature an impossible help.
Vesuvius, the great mountain which brings destruction, dominates the entire poem. The only attainable truth is death, toward which man must inexorably advance, abandoning every illusion and becoming conscious of his own miserable condition. Such awareness will placate the mutual hatreds. It is a vast poem, symphonically constructed with brilliant alternations of tone, from the grandiose and tragic painting of the volcano threatening destruction and of extensions of infertile lava, to the sharp ideological argumentation, to the cosmic sparks which project the nothingness of the earth and of man in the immensity of the universe, to the vision of the infinite passage of centuries of human history on which the immutable threat of nature has always weighed, to the gentle notes dedicated to the "flower in the desert", in which are compressed complex symbolic meanings: An essential change occurs with the Ginestra, which closes the poetic career of Leopardi along with Il tramonto della Luna, which takes up the old themes of the fall of youthful illusions.
The poem reiterates and reaffirms the sharp anti-optimistic and anti-religious polemic, but in a new and democratic register. Here, Leopardi no longer denies the possibility of civic progress: Il tramonto della Luna [ edit ] Il tramonto della Luna "The Waning of the Moon" , the last canto, was composed by Leopardi in Naples shortly before his death. The moon wanes, leaving nature in total darkness, just as youth passes away leaving life dark and derelict.
The poet seems to presage the imminence of his own death. In , Ranieri published the definitive edition of the Canti according to the will of the author. The work, written in , was intended to be satirical he first believes that man is unhappy and miserable, but now progress has made him reconsider his position , but the thought of the inevitable destruction to which nature condemns everything leads him to express bitter conclusions in spite of himself.
Regarding this work, the Marquis Capponi wrote in a letter to Leopardi that he shared, at least in part, many of his ideas and thanked him for the "noble verses". However, in a letter addressed to Viesseux, he expressed himself in rather different terms: But the clearest demonstration of his mastery of this art form is probably the Paralipomeni della Batracomiomachia, a brief comic-heroic poem of eight stanzas of eight lines each.
Leopardi wrote it between and , beginning it during his last stay in Florence and finishing it in Naples. The publication took place, posthumously, in Paris in , provoking a universal reaction of outrage and condemnation, as much for the cutting and anti-heroic representation of the events of the Risorgimento as for the numerous materialistic philosophical digressions.
Batracomiomachia was also the title of a pseudo-Homeric poem which was actually written in the 4th or 5th century BC and translated by Leopardi between and The title therefore alludes to an integration of the original work, which is taken up again where it left off and the narrative progresses. The subject is a fable regarding the conflict between the mice that inhabit the nation of Topaia and the invading crabs. But behind the plot, there is hidden a robust sarcastic and polemical motivation.
The animals and their doings have an allegorical value. In the crabs, portrayed unsympathetically and with monstrous characteristics, are to be recognized the Austrians; in the mice, sometimes generous but mostly ingenuous and cowardly, the liberal Italians. The poem represents the historical events that took place between and Even the revolutionary movements of are included by Leopardi, who was able to follow them by way of the moderate Tuscan circles which he frequented and who perhaps provided him with the inspiration for the work.
Ma che sceneggiatori hanno preso per scrivere questo copione? I tre di Boris? Stacca su Sansa basita F4. Ma tipo una balla, no?
Non potevamo raccontare una fregnaccia e portare a casa la partita? Tutti giustamente lo scansano e gli danno del coglione. Ma ci pensa il nano, che non fa una cippa da 10 puntate: Ci credo che ha gli occhi rossi, non sapete quanto piange la notte e capisce tutto: Ma niente, tutti felici partono per Roccia del Drago.
Che colpo di scena. MA non priviamico di altri 10 minuti di puntata per raccontare di qualcosa di cui totalmente inutile: Theon, preso da moto di orgoglio fraterno dopo aver disquisito per ore con Topolino in cui mancava solo si dessero della lingua, decide di convincere i suoi uomini a partire per salvare Jara, imprigionata nelle segrete dal malvagio Euron.
Ma per piacere… Ma torniamo al norde: Sam arriva, dicevamo, e becca subito Bran, da cui si fa dare del coglione in almeno 3 occasioni. Grazie molte, avevamo capito tutto da anni.
