Arturo Graf

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arturo Graf (1848–1913), Italian poet, of German ancestry, was born at Athens.

He was educated at the University of Naples and became a lecturer on Italian literature in Rome, till in 1876 he was appointed professor at Turin.[1]

He was one of the founders of the Giornale della letteratura italiana, and his publications include valuable prose criticism; but he is best known as a poet. His various volumes of verse--Poesie e novelle (1874), Dopo il tramonto versi (1893), etc. gave him a high place among the lyrical writers of his country.[1]
