Poet and Novelist. Considered the noblest figure in the Italian literature of the nineteenth century, he wrote tragedies, including "The Count of Carmagnola" and "Adelchis," and poetry, such as "The Sacred Hymns" and "The Fifth of May" dedicated to Napoleon's death. "The Betrothed," (I Promessi Sposi) written between 1821 and 1825, and rewritten in 1840, remains hugely popular in Italy, where it's been made into several films and even a stage musical.
