Luigi Capuana (May 28, 1839 – November 29, 1915) was an Italian author and journalist and one of the most important members of the Verist movement. He was a contemporary of Giovanni Verga, both having been born in the province of Catania within a year of each other. He was also one of the first authors influenced by the works of ?mile Zola, French author and creator of Naturalism. Capuana also wrote poetry in Sicilian, of which an example appears below.He was the author of plays (Garibaldi, Vanitas Vanitatum, Parodie, Semiritmi), stories (Studi sulla letteratura contemporanea, Per larte, Gli ismi contemporanei, Cronache letterarie, Il teatro italiano contemporaneo), novels (Giacinta, Marchese di Roccaverdina, La sfinge, Profumo, Rassegnazione) and various other theatrical works.What follows is the beginning of a translation from the Italian Wikipedia page (which will be updated):
Biography,Origins and schoolingLuigi Capuana was born in Mineo, in the Province of Catania. His family was wealthy, and owned property in the area. He attended the local school.In 1851 he enrolled in the Royal College of Bronte, Catania, but left after only 2 years because of bad health. However, he continued to study by teaching himself.After graduating he enrolled in the Faculty of Law at Catania in 1857. He abandoned this in 1860 in order to take part in Garibaldis Risorgimento as the secretary of the Secret Committee of Insurrection in Mineo, and later as the chancellor of the nascent civic council.Literary AdventuresIn 1861 Capuana released the legendary drama Garibaldi in three cantos, published in Catania by Galatola. In 1864 he settled in Florence to begin his literary adventure: he met, and kept in touch with, the most notable Italian authors of the era (including Aleardo Aleardi), he published his first critical essays in the Italian Review in 1865, he became the theatre critic for Nation in 1866, he published, serially in a Florentine daily in 1867, his first novella, entitled Dr. Cymbalus which took Dumas fils La boite dargent as a model. He would stay in Florence until 1868.Return to SicilyIn 1868 Capuana returned to Sicily planning a brief stay, but his fathers death and economic hardship anchored him to the island. He worked as a school inspector and later as counselor of Mineo until he was elected as mayor of the town.During these years he learned more about Hegels idealist philosophy. He was especially inspired by Dopo la Laurea, an essay by positivist and Hegelian doctor Angelo Camillo De Meis, who had developed a theory on the evolution and death of literary genres.Catania: work at university and deathIn 1902 Capuana moved to Catania to lecture lexicography and stylistics at the local university.His last literary works included Coscienze (1905), Nel paese di Zagara (1910), and Gli Americani di Rabbato (1912).Capuana died in Catania on November 29, 1915, shortly after Italy entered the First World War.
