Gozzi, Count Carlo (17131786)

Gozzi, Count Carlo, Italian dramatist, born at Venice; was 39 when his first dramatic piece, “Three Oranges,” brought him prominently before the public; he followed up this success with a series of dramas designed to uphold the old methods of Italian dramatic art, and to resist the efforts of Goldoni and Chiari to introduce French models; these plays dealing with wonderful adventures and enchantments in the manner of Eastern tales (“dramatic fairy tales,” he called them), enjoyed a wide popularity, and spread to Germany and France. Schiller translated “Turandot” (1722-1806).—His elder brother, Count Gasparo Gozzi, was an active littérateur; the author of various translations, essays on literature, besides editor of a couple of journals; was press censor in Venice for a time, and was in his later days engaged in school and university work (17131786).
