review ï I promessi sposi 105 Il capolavoro della letteratura italiana riproposto in una chiave che ne chiarisce i profondi contenut. Want a wonderfully old fashioned lovingly human and seemingly never ending long romance full of humour pathos and endearingly living and breathing characters with swordplay n chivalry crammed cheek and jowl with free wheeling high adventure to curl up with in your free hours of discreet distancing from diseased public spacesAs carefully wrought as a Cellini centrepiece of fine crafted gold this book the Great Italian Novel follows the trials of two star crossed lovers in a vivid and highly readable tale of malice and innocence salvation and damnation in the Italian Renaissance My go to novel for Escape I m reading this VERY slowly because I never want it to endTheir spiritual advisor a man of substance formerly though much fallen upon by evil circumstance who now finds solace in cloistered prayer beseeches the betrothed couple and especially the gallant hot tempered young swain to make discretion the better part of their innocent valourAnd incredibly innocent they are indeed in the black gaze of the jaded nobleman who sees in this youth s lady love a rare beauty to whose maidenhead he must perforce have the unchallenged first right as Lord of the DemesneBut innocence is blind to such rank deviousness in the first springtime of its youth and so this poor young couple must pass through the very Gates of Hades for their wish of wedded bliss to become realityUnuestionably this is the All time Greatest Italian Coming of Age NovelAnd historically maybe Italy s most beloved novel period

review ï I promessi sposi 105 I cristiani spiega come la fede che anima i suoi personaggi non sia un affidarsi passivamente alla pro. If you are not Italian or a literature major you may not be familiar with Alessandro Manzoni s The Betrothed I wasn t And if you aren t a determined reader you might give up on its dense description of seventeen century customs and rigorous lifestyle from a nineteenth century reunification perspective It was an unduly harsh time for Italian peasantry Cycles of plagues grueling poverty starvation existence on unreliable crops nothing even resembling government assistance except inflexibility and intimidation Sometimes the Church and Her sacraments could be relied upon for succor but Her ministers could also be bought or frightened into withholding their services as happened to our hero and heroine in the beginning of this story Renzo and Lucia who want to marry are stymied on their wedding day by a jealous local baron who threatens a cowardly priest into refusing to marry them Set against all odds Renzo and Lucia go their separate ways after a series of unfortunate events seems bound to keep them apart forever And as I mention below there are some phenomenal hidden treasures which pop out at you during the tale such as the real Federigo Borromeo Cardinal of Milan the conversion of the Unnamed finely drawn character descriptions for connoisseurs of the art as well as some delightful comic relief Truly an epic storyToday s reader might prefer this to be edited but I would just encourage them to listen to it in its entirety Yes there are some rather overlong parts but I would not remove a word Bravo Mr Manzoni Risorgimento risord i mento meaning the Resurgence or revival was the political and social movement that consolidated different states of the Italian peninsula into the single state of the Kingdom of Italy in the 19th century September 19 2018 This book has turned out to be so much than I ever ever expected The premise did not sound very complicated but the history of the era is what gives it such a richness It is also much longer than I thought still readingAugust 13 2018 In this month s Magnificat August 2018 there was an article How the Church Has Changed the World A Man of Rebirth describing a scene from Betrothed which though fictional relates an actual historical event in the life of Federigo Borromeo Cardinal of Milan 1564 1631 Reading that made me want to re start Manzoni s book previously downloaded Had set it aside as slow going now I am determined
