ARTURO GRAF (1848– ), Italian poet, of German ex-traction, was born at Athens. He was educated at Naples University and became a lecturer on Italian literature in Rome, till in 1882 he was appointed professor at Turin. He was one of the founders of the Giornale della letteratura italiana, and his publications include valuable prose criticism; but he is best known as a poet. His various volumes of verse—Poesie e novelle (1874), Dopo it tramonto versi (1893), &c.—give him a high place among the recent lyrical writers of his country.
