Novelist, playwright, and poet Gabriele D'Annunzio (1863-1938) shocked and dazzled early twentieth-century Europe with his sexual exploits, military feats, and political escapades. More than any other figure since the unification of Italy, he casts a shadow forward to the present day. His relationships with the worlds of Italian culture, theatre, and politics were unique, fiery, and always controversial. His literary achievements have influenced generations of Italian writers. This is the most authoritative biography of the man in any language.

About the Author:

John Woodhouse is at Magdalen College, Oxford.

Review:


"Woodhouse has written a solidly documented work which should serve as the standard biography of D'Annunzio for years to come."--International Review of Modernism


"In this admirably level-headed biography [Woodhouse] does full justice to the poet's genius and to the Nietzschean celebrity-hero's significant role in European cultural and political history. His elegantly written book is scrupulous enough to satisfy his fellow-scholars, but it is also racy enough to provide plenty of thrills for the lay reader."--The Sunday Times [London]


"Certainly the best biography to have appeared in English, and probably the most readable in any language.... a remarkable feat of concise storytelling."--Times Literary Supplement
