Giacomo Casanova:

The Duel (Hesperus Classics) - used book

ISBN: 1843910322

ID: 4193328

One of the few works written in Casanova's native Italian, The Duel is an important example of the infamous Lothario's vivid prose style. Translated for the first time into English, this autobiographical novel describes Casanova's extraordinary battle with a Polish count, while on the run from the Venetian authorities. Having escaped from Venice's infamous Piombi Prison, Casanova was forced into exile. Far from destitute, however, his reputation gained him entry into European society's highest echelons. Yet there, he soon found himself obliged to engage in a duel over a ballerina?a lady in whom neither he nor his Polish rival had the slightest interest. Recounting the deadly encounter and the surprising events it precipitated with sardonic wit, Casanova creates a work of thrilling adventure and inimitable literary style. Giacomo Casanova was an adventurer, a spy, a poet, and a novelist. His literary reputation rests on his remarkable History of My Life, which vividly records not only his exploits and adventures but the manners and morals of the day. action and adventure,classics,contemporary,criticism and theory,education and reference,genre fiction,history and criticism,literary,literature and fiction,short stories Education & Reference, Hesperus Press

ID: 688727326

One of the few works written in Casanova´s native Italian, The Duel is an important example of the infamous lothario´s vivid prose and inimitable style. Having escaped from the infamous Piombi Prison in Venice, Casanova became an exile, travelling through Western Europe and being given shelter on account of his fame. The story recounts the duel he fought with a Polish nobleman, Count Branicky, who had insulted Casanova over a ballerina. Describing the deadly encounter and the surprising events it precipitated with sardonic and even blase wit, Casanova proves his literary prowess. Based on a week-long symposium, the two authors of this volume debate the divergent perspectives on the role of government and its fiscal functions. They apply their differing economic and political philosophies to a variety of key issues. Each presentation is followed by a response and discussion.
