John Masters õ Casanova Text

CasanovaRary as the most civilized man in Europe That he was also a con man cabalist spy revenge taker and experienced prisoner only enhances his appeal as one who personified the extreme social and moral contradictions of the timeIn chronicling the life There have been lots of secondary books about Casanova and I don't know how this ranks among them but for me it was a fine companion to the actual memoirs not being too long some are insanely complex in an attempt to identify every one of the thousands of people he interacted with and mostly had sex with whose names he disguised and being full of relevant period illustrations and of witty commentary by the author which hit just the right note One disappointment now I learn that in fact when Casanova was called before a magistrate in London it was not in fact Henry Fielding the novelist as he identified him in his memoirs but Fielding's brother who was blind Still in a book so chock full of celebrity cameos that running into Bonnie Prince Charlie in a bath house merits only a few sentences I suppose I can let go of the Fielding one and still have plenty left to delight over And there is also the implication that he never actually did meet Voltaire though it was described so vividly in the memoirs I dispute that one; I won't let go of that one so easily
