9781589632899: The Eternal City

This is by much the most popular of Hall Caine’s novels thus far, more than a million copies of have been sold in English editions only. It is intended to show that the morality which is required of individual men should govern nations also. The chief scene is Rome, and the Pope (a reverent portrait resembling Pius IX) is one of the leading characters.

The story which was first published in 1901, anticipated the Socialistic and Communistic movement, not only in Italy, but throughout Europe. A socialist leader of high character and capacity, David Rossi, makes an effort to carry into effect the teachings of Mazzini, which he understands to be according to the precepts of the Lord’s Prayer. At the crisis of his endeavor he is betrayed into the hands of authorities by the woman he loves, who is moved solely by the desire to save his life.

The perils of the communistic and antimilitary movement as well as its spiritual ideals form the background of the story, but its main theme is love--the upraising of a woman’s character under the influence of a pure affection. The love story is the strongest element in this greatly popular book.

About the Author:

Sir Thomas Henry Hall Caine (1853-1931) was an English novelist. Secretary to Dante Gabriel Rossetti, he lived with him from 1881 until the poet's death and wrote Recollections of Rossetti (1882). He moved his residence permanently to the Isle of Man in 1895 and was elected to the Manx House of Keys (the local legislature) in 1903. His enormously popular novels, some of Manx life, others on biblical themes, include The Shadow of a Crime (1885), The Deemster (1887), The Manxman (1894), The Christian (1897), The Prodigal Son (1904), and The Master of Man (1921). His novels, some of which were set in the Isle of Man, sold by the million, were made into plays and films, and were translated into many languages.
