Giambattista Marino

Marino, Giambattista (jämˌbät-tēˈstä märēˈnō) [key], 1569–1625, Italian poet. His florid, highly elaborated style, called Marinismo, which was akin to euphuism, was much admired and imitated in his time. He had a strong influence on writing in all European literature. Among his principal works is Adone (1623), a long narrative poem. His name sometimes appears as Marini.
