Giacomo Leopardi is the most notable poet of modern italian literature. During his whole life Leopardi was a truecel since he was 141cm tall (4'8") and suffered skeletal deformities since his birth. In the Italian incelosphere he isn't only considered a protocel, but also the precursor of blackpill ideology.

Description[edit | edit source]

The main themes of Leopardi's poetry are trueceldom and the suffering of the life he leads. In fact he developed an ideology called "cosmic pessimism" that claims unhappiness is inborn in human life and it's impossible to experience happyness truely.

Blackpill[edit | edit source]

In one of his famous poems, named L'ultimo canto di Saffo, in english Last poem of Sappho, Leopardi narrates his desperation after being rejected by a girl and blames the looks nature gave him as cause of his suffering.

some parts of this poem:

How beautiful thou art, O heaven divine,

And thou, O dewy earth! Alas no part Of all this beauty infinite, the gods And cruel fate to wretched Sappho gave! To thy proud realms, O Nature, I, a poor, Unwelcome guest, rejected lover, come;


All manly deeds in arms, or art, or song,

Appeal in vain unto the ugly looks.

The two last verses sum up Leopardi's blackpill ideology: even if you become superior with your deeds or your artistic work, you won't be successful if you are unattractive.
