Rossetti, Gabriele


Born Feb. 28, 1783, in Vasto, Abruz-zi; died Apr. 24, 1854, in London. Italian poet.

During the revolution of 1820–21 in Naples, Rossetti wrote the anthem “You are beautiful with the stars in your hair.” After the revolution was defeated he fled, settling in England in 1824. Rossetti responded to political events in Italy with impassioned songs and poems. Some of his works are permeated with mystic religiosity, including the treatise On the Antipapal Spirit (1832) and the collection of poems God and Man, a Psalter (1833). Rossetti’s Analytic Commentary on the Divine Comedy (1826) treated Dante’s work as an allegory advocating church reform.
