Ugo Foscolo (1778-1827) was one of Italy's major 19th-century poets. He expressed the poet's personal occupation with the difficult years of mutation from the Enlightenment to Romanticism, the French Revolution to the Restoration, 18th-century materialism to the Romantic religious angst. He gave voice to a lay earthly faith based on the highest human values of truth, justice, beauty, patriotism and liberty. These themes appear in his juvenilia "Ultime lettere di Jacopo Ortis", an autobiographical story in the form of letters, but reach their fullest and most poetic expression in the sonnet sequence and his most successful poem: "Dei Sepolcri".
