Antonio Guadagnoli (1798–1858)

Guadagnoli, Antonio (gwad-än’yō-lē). An Italian poet; born in Arezzo, in 1798; died at Cortona, Feb. 21, 1858. He belonged to an aristocratic family, but his means were slender during the greater part of his life. His poems, ‘The Nose,’ ‘Prattle,’ ‘My Clothes,’ and ‘A Woman’s Tongue Put to the Test,’ display a lively wit. His ‘Collection of Light Poetry’ is much quoted.
