Leopardi ascribes great importance to youth, of wich he points out the enthusiasm, the intense wish to live that finds, however, an outlet with difficulty, rising unhappiness. Leopardi’s sad, personal life is very evident inside his theory. Leopardi exhorts Italian young people to national redemption by his poetry and, moreover, he theorizes a social education for real life of the naive, inexpert young man.
