Author Biography - Ugo Foscolo
Ugo Foscolo (1778-1827) is probably the second most popular poet in Italy, after Dante. He is most famous for his long poem On Sepulchres, and his unfinished work The Graces. After a life of wanderings he ended up in London, where he spent the last 11 years of his life mixing with high society and the greatest writers of the day, including Lord Byron. He died in poverty in Turnham Green, now part of London, and his tomb can still be seen in the Chiswick Cemetery, although his ashes were later removed to Italy.
