Mejnour has the great power of self-control and is less deterred by the fragrance of these passions that are set against the desires of a cast of remarkable friends. All are bound by fate on the road to self-destruction and the cross of regeneration . . . weakened by the fateful politics . . . the Master of the Theaterroyal, rejected . . . turns to selfish love and lusts interest, which breaks traditions of decency with the powers of a king.Zanoni is a fictionalized work with historical interjections. If you are simply tired of the liberal silly dialogue, part 2 promises even more depth of detail. The true purposes tied to this fictional tale are vastboth for history and self-education. This is just the introduction of what may come to follow after this, if the time permits and the story continues, saved for another day to remember and to set the calendar by.
