Guido Gozzano

Biography

Italian poet, leader of a poetic school known as crepuscolarismo, which favoured a direct, unadorned style to express nostalgic memories.

Gozzano graduated from the National College of Savigliano and briefly attended law school in Turin before beginning a literary career. La via del rifugio (1907; “The Road to Shelter”), his first volume of verse, showed the influence of Gabriele D’Annunzio.

The second and last collection Gozzano published during his lifetime was I colloqui (1911; The Colloquies), which addresses the themes of youth, death, creative repression, nostalgia, regret, and contentment. It includes the poems “La signorina Felicita, ovvero, La Felicità” (“Miss Felicita, or, Felicity”), reminiscences of the poet’s visits with a simple middle-class girl, and “Totò Merùmeni,” a self-portrait of a melancholy poet. Much of Gozzano’s work was uncollected when he died from tuberculosis onm 9 August 1916 at age 32.
