A fine copy in the publisher's pale gray dust jacket, spine lettered in black. Housed in the publisher's black cardboard slipcase.Alessandro Francesco Tommaso Manzoni (1785-1873) was an Italian poet and novelist. He is famous for the novel I Promessi Sposi (The Betrothed) which was first published in 1827 and is generally ranked among the masterpieces of world literature. The novel is also a symbol of the Italian Risorgimento, both for its patriotic message and because it was a fundamental milestone in the development of the modern, unified Italian language. Set in northern Italy in 1628, during the supposed oppressive years of direct Spanish rule, it is sometimes seen as a veiled attack on the Austrian Empire, which controlled the region at the time the novel was written. It is also noted for the extraordinary description of the plague that struck Milan around 1630. It deals with a variety of themes, from the cowardly, hypocritical nature of one prelate (Don Abbondio) and the heroic sainthood of other priests (Padre Cristoforo, Federico Borromeo), to the unwavering strength of love (the relationship between Renzo and Lucia, and their struggle to finally meet again and be married), and offers some keen insights into the meanderings of the human mind.Limited Editions Club Bibliography, 217.
