Italy Released Stamp on Giovanni Pascolini

The Italian Post has issued a stamp commemorating the death centenary of Giovanni Pascolini.Giovanni Pascoli was an Italian poet and classical scholar. His earlier poems \"\"look simple, and focus particularly on domestic life and nature. However, Pascoli, even in that period of Positivism and scientism, believes that life is a mystery; only symbolic associations discovered in the humble things of nature can lead man to catch a glimpse of the truth behind mere appearances. His later poems share similar themes but are more experimental, and reflect his knowledge of classical antiquity. They were a great influence on later Italian poets, who incorporated his melancholy themes into their own works. He wrote in both Italian and Latin; he also translated English poetry.
