Sample text

Just as important are the sections reproducing Algarotti’s travels in Germany; Metastasio’s letters, the literary value of which is precociously acknowledged by Panizzi; the novelle of the abate Michele Colombo, one of Panizzi’s tutors; and the legal prose of Gaetano Filangieri that must have been deeply familiar to Panizzi, who had taken a degree in law at the University of Parma in 1818. His 1828 anthology is thus underscored by a rigorous selection based on a few significant names which may usefully convey a new idea of Italy: from Machiavelli, at eighty pages the most abundantly excerpted author, up to Manzoni.

The two volumes, accompanied by some brief closing remarks, are in 16°. 12 Fiori poetici scelti e illustrati da Carlo Beolchi (1839). See also his Saggio della poesia italiana (1825). Further information is offered in his autobiography Reminescenze dall’esilio (1830; later, Turin: Biancardi, 1852). 13 At the turn of the century, a peculiar case is represented by the English author most active in popularizing Italian poetry, Thomas James Mathias, a member of the Roman Arcadia with the name of ‘Lariso Salaminio’, and a member and correspondent of the Florentine Accademia della Crusca and the Accademia Pontaniana of Naples.

See also Mathias’s letter Agli eruditi e culti inglesi amatori della lingua della letteratura e della poesia italiana, and his song to William Lort Mansel, ‘dottore di sacra teologia’ at Cambridge, in Aggiunta ai componimenti lirici de’ più illustri poeti d’Italia, II, pp. 4 and 52, later in Poesie liriche italiane, inglesi e latine (Naples: Nobile, 1822), pp. 12 and 37. 13 The Canon of the Classics 33 strengthened by dozens of anthologies. Without any apparent preferences for poetical works, Panizzi had the clear, and all but celebratory, aim of offering a useful instrument that might facilitate the (not very numerous) London University students who, contrary to traditional practice, did not have to tackle the works of ‘poetical writers’ but rather the ‘prose compositions’ of a tradition which Panizzi sought to highlight in its closest links with British culture.
