Expressing the author's political, civic and sentimental concerns, these poems will surprise the English reader with their immediacy and intimacy. "On Sepulchres", Foscolo's masterpiece, as well as being one of the pinnacles of European neoclassical literature, is still one of the most widely studied poems in Italy. Foscolo's poetry reveals the inner recesses of a passionate, restless and surprisingly modern mind.
