Translated from the edition of Benedetto Croce by Joan Redfern. Reprint edition, 1959. "This book is one of the most notable works of literary history of the romantic and idealistic school, and may perhaps be regarded as its masterpiece. Though not published until 1870-71, it was really a product of the school that De Sanctis had opened in Naples and in which he had taught from 1839 to 1848, that is to say, at the height of the Italian romantic movement and the cult of German philosophy. It was nourished by his studies while in the prisons of Naples, into which the Bourbon government had thrown him on account of his liberalism; and it grew and gathered strength in the series of lectures which he delivered while in exile in Turin and Zurich between 1853 and 1860. What this book aimed to be (and was) was an examination of the national conscience, a recognition of strength and weaknesses, a recalling of past glories and errors, and also a warning. As such, poetry and literature being products of the human spirit were now judged as expressions of the social life of a people; were put into continual relation to its moral, social, and political history. Thus, it is first and foremost an intimate history of the Italian people." from the Introduction. Mylar Protected.
