Maria Luisa Cicci (1760–1794)

Cicci, Maria Luisa (chē’chē). An Italian poet; born in Pisa, Nov. 14, 1760; died on March 8, 1794. She fell early under the influence of Dante’s great poem, and applied herself devotedly to letters, philosophy, physics, and history; her collected ‘Poems’ (1796) showing the results in refinement of imagery, and polished though perhaps pedantic taste.
