Angelo De Gubernatis (1840–1913)

De Gubernatis, Angelo (gö-bār-nä’tēs). An Italian critic, poet, philologist, and historian; born in Turin, April 7, 1840; died in 1913. His scholarship and versatility have won him distinction in widely separated departments of literature, such as, ‘The First Twenty Hymns of the Rig-Veda’ (text and translation, 1865); ‘Death of Cato’ (1863), a drama in metre; ‘King Nala,’ an Indo-Brahmin play; ‘Gabriel,’ a novel; ‘Zoölogical Mythology’ (1872); a work of reference entitled ‘Writers of the Day’; and a great ‘Universal History of Literature’ (1882–85).
