Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837), Zibaldone, tr. Kathleen Baldwin et al. (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2013), p. 64 (Z 58):
From Homer onward everything got better, except poetry.

Tutto si è perfezionato da Omero in poi, ma non la poesia.
I'm very grateful to the generous friend who gave me the new English translation of Leopardi's Zibaldone, all lxxxvi + 2502 pages, beautifully printed on India paper. It's a gift I will always cherish.
