Project MUSE – Ugo Foscolo’s Ultime Lettere di Jacopo Ortis

Amongst his Foscolo was born on the Ionian island of Zakynthos. His literary lettefe revealed itself by the appearance in of his tragedy Tieste–a production which obtained a certain degree of success.

He was a prominent member of the national du, and addressed an ode to Napoleon Bonaparte, expecting Napoleon to overthrow the Venetian oligarchy and create a free republic. The Treaty of Campoformio 17 Octoberby which Napoleon handed Venice over to the Austrians, gave a rude shock to Foscolo, but did not quite destroy his hopes.

The state of mind produced by that shock is reflected in his novel Ultime lettere di Jacopo Ortis The Last Letters of Jacopo Ortiswhich was described by the Encyclopedia Britannica as a more politicized version of Goethe’s The Sorrows of Young Werther, “for the hero of Foscolo embodies the mental sufferings and suicide of an undeceived Italian patriot just as the hero of Goethe places before us the too delicate sensitiveness embittering and at last cutting short the life of a private German scholar.

Jacopo Ortis had been a real person; he was a young student of Padua, and committed suicide there under circumstances akin to foscooo described by Foscolo. Foscolo, like many of his contemporaries, had thought much about the topic of suicide. Cato and the many classical examples of self-destruction described in Plutarch’s Lives appealed to the imaginations of young Italian patriots as they had done in France to those of the heroes and heroines of the Gironde.


Ugo Foscolo – Wikiquote

In the case of Foscolo, as in lettfre of Goethe, the effect produced on the writer’s mind by the composition of the work seems to have been beneficial. He had seen the ideal of a great national future rudely shattered; but he did not despair of his country, and sought relief in now turning to gaze on the ideal of a great national poet.

After the fall of Venice Foscolo moved to Milan, where he formed a friendship with the older poet Giuseppe Parini, whom he later remembered with admiration and gratitude. In Milan, he published a choice of 12 Sonnets, where he blends the passionate sentiments shown in Ultije with classical control of language and rhythm.

Still hoping that his country would be freed by Napoleon, he served as a volunteer in the French army, took part in the battle of the Trebbia and the siege of Genoa, was wounded and made prisoner. When released he returned to Milan, and there gave the last touches to his Ortis, published a translation of and commentary upon Callimachus, commenced a version of the Iliad and began his translation of Lawrence Sterne’s Sentimental Journey. He also took part in a failed memorandum intended to present a new model of unified Italian government to Napoleon.

InFoscolo wrote his Carme Dei sepolcri, which may be described as a sublime effort to seek refuge in the past from the misery of the present and the darkness of the future.

The mighty dead are summoned from their tombs, as ages before they had been in the masterpieces of Greek oratory, to fight again the battles of their country. The inaugural lecture On the origin and duty Books by Ugo Foscolo.
