Rezension: "This is not just a book; it offers consolation to the whole of humanity." --Giuseppe Verdi "[Manzoni is] the only Italian literary figure whom his countrymen consider worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as Dante . . . It is almost impossible to accept this book as a first novel. Through the virtuosity with which its creator deploys and refines his raw materials, the story of Renzo and Lucia . . . consistently transcends its considerable potential for sentimentality . . . The "mElange" of tones, styles and methods within the book makes the experience of reading it one of the most rewarding--and simultaneously most challenging--in nineteenth-century fiction."--from the Introduction by Jonathan Keates
