Hymn to Satan (L'inno a Satana)

Italy appeared at the scene of Nobel Prize in the first decade of the prize - winning a whole prize in literature in 1906, a shared prize by Camillo Golgi (along with Santiago Ramon of Spain), also in 1906, a Peace Prize by Ernesto Moneta in 1907 and a shared Physics Prize by Guglielmo Marconi in 1909. All Nobel Laureates are Great, yet the 1906 Nobel Prize in Literature to Carducci stands out conspicuously because two Nobel translators of Carducci's works in German (Theodor Mommsen before him in 1902 & Paul Heyse after him in 1910) also became Nobel Laureates in Literature. Carducci was a patriot to the bone marrow and summed up his philosophy thus: In Politics, Italy before all things; In Art, Classical Poetry before all things; In Life, sincerity and strength before all things. I like and recommend his Poem ' Inno a Satana' which happens to be a revolutionary eulogy. It is his passion laid open on paper because with Victor Hugo as his ideal; he clung to the spirit of revolution with all the zeal.
