Description:

Written as an epistolary monologue,Last Letters of Jacopo Ortisis a compelling portrayal of a troubled mind. Published here for the first time in the English language, it is presented with Foscolo's highly acclaimed poem,Of Tombs.Banished from his homeland and from the woman he loves, Jacopo Ortis lives with the insufferable feelings of disillusionment and betrayal. Gone are his youthful dreams of literary glory, and in their place only his embittered laughter at fortune, at men, and at God. In the anguish of his state he feels himself compelled to make one final, titanic, and tragic gesture to the rulers of his age.

Ugo Foscolo was a truly international literary figure, drawing inspiration from many lands. He translated Laurence Sterne's A Sentimental Journey, produced a prose masterpiece in his Last Letters of Jacopo Ortis and wrote a poetic masterpiece, On Sepulchres (1807), which celebrates the great figures of Italy's past. Of the height of poetic inspiration in this last work, Giosue Carducci would later say that there is a "fusing together in a single sublime choral harmony the accents of sermon and hymn, elegy and satire, tragedy and epic."

Italian historian and archaeologist Valerio Massimo Manfredi is a professor of classical archaeology at the University of Milan. He was named Man of the Year 1999 by the American Biographical Institute for this bestselling trilogy. Manfredi's books have been published in France, Germany, Greece, Russia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
