Bernardino Perfetti (1681–1746)

Perfetti, Bernardino (per-fet’tē). An Italian poet; born at Siena, 1681; died in 1746. He was an improvvisatore, and accompanied with the lyre his verses as he composed them; he was as ready to versify a thesis of philosophy or of jurisprudence as to compose a lyric poem. A collection of his verses was published in 1748 under the title ‘Poetic Essays.’
