In 1877, Symonds began to have severe pulmonary hemorrhage, and since 1880 he began to live in a mountain resort in Davos in Switzerland, choosing a climate that is useful for treating tuberculosis. Here he created his most famous work, glorifying it in the 19th century. This was a seven-volume study in the field of culture and aesthetics called “Renaissance in Italy”. He also wrote studies of the poetry of Shelley (1879), Ben Johnson (1886), Michelangelo (1893), and Walt Whitman (1893), with whom he corresponded. He also published the first English translation of Sonnets by Michelangelo Buonarotti and Tommaso Camparrelli (1878).
