Luigi Groto (1541–1585)

Groto, Luigi (grō’tō). An Italian poet, called “the Blind Man of Adria”; born there, Sept. 7, 1541; died at Venice, Dec. 13, 1585. He lost his sight when eight days old, but studied literature and philosophy with precocious ability. His orations and letters were collected: he left also a small volume of poems; ‘The Treasure,’ a comedy; and ‘Delilah,’ a tragedy.
