1809, May 121850, May 31
an Italian poet and satirist. Giusti became known for witty satires written during the period of the Italian Risorgimento. His commentary during the early years of Italy’s nationalistic movement against Austrian rule outlived their political period, and are enjoyed for their Tuscan lively style and preservation of the classic Tuscan tongue. His satires defended Italy or lamented the social conditions from its political state. Giusti's poetic style eventually departed from what had been a Tuscan tradition of jocose, playful verse. Poetically, it aspires to wisdom, honesty, frankness, and to clarity. His work held literary romanticism in contempt.
