ADA NEGRI (187o– ), Italian poet, was born at Lodi, of an artisan family, and became a village school-teacher. Her first book of poems, Tempeste (1891), tells the helpless tragedy of the forsaken poor, in words of vehement beauty. Her second volume of lyrics, Fatalitd (1893), confirmed her reputation as a poet, and led to her appointment to the normal school at Milan; but her later verse, while striking in its sincerity, suffered by a tendency to repetition and consequent mannerism.
