The trajectory of his turbulent life was breathtaking, his range of experience vast. In this evocative book, the first biographical over view of Corvo's world in almost 40 years, noted Corvo scholar Robert Scoble examines the writer's character and motivations. Scoble has drawn on his three decades of research in hitherto undisturbed library archives and troves of family letters to produce these essays in microhistory. He shows how these lives intersected in the story of a great eccentric who assumed the bogus title Baron Corvo and spent his final years scandalising Venice.
