Tommaso Cannizzaro (1838–1916)

Cannizzaro, Tommaso (kän-its-är’ō). An Italian poet; born in Messina, Aug. 17, 1838; died in 1916. The volume of poems styled ‘In Solitude’ shows him an idealist, and perhaps symbolist. He uses the French language with dexterity and grace in ‘Thorns and Roses,’ another volume of verse. He also wrote ‘India’ (1899).
