still going at 
going at moment disbelief careless behaviour and ignorance then unfounded terror and in some cases prejudices and trying to find a scapegoat to blame Manzoni says Ignorance often inspires courage at a time for caution and caution in a time for courageBut The Elusive Heiress Nancy Drew he also talks about the acts of courage anduman sacrifice The one of the characters Father Christoforo is looking after the victims of the plague in lazaretto until Pizarro and the Conuest of Peru his last breathThese scenes at the end of the novelave slightly overshadowed for me that it contains much Also it is not all gloom It ends well Are You There God? It's Me M hardly a spoiler I really liked the first part of the novel Manzoni writes with the good sense ofumour and irony There are even scenes one can laugh atThe plot is really simple A peasant boy wants to marry a peasant girl But a villain aristocrat tries to ruin everything as Evan (O'Connor Brothers Vol. 5) he makes a bet toave the girl There is a lot of clergy involved both good guys and less good guys The tone is often extremely pious which On Hitler's Mountain Overcoming the Legacy of a Nazi Childhood PS has put me off a bit The plot is uite didactic as wellHowever theistoric analysis Manzoni incorporate in this novel is uite interesting uite likely it tells us about early 19th century when the novel was written than about the 17th century when the novel is set But in any case it is fascinating to find out about such matters like the bread revolts in Milano or A cristalli liquidi (Italian Edition) how the people communicated remotely when many of them could not write through someone who could and misunderstandings it causedThe article by Economist about this book which is somewhat unfairly under the paywall But there is a limit of the free articles one can use Historical novel set in Italy during the 1600 s It s a long novel that may appeal to some it just wasn t my cup of tea There s a bit of everything on offerere skullduggery star crossed lovers treachery pestilence and plagueCouldn t say in all onesty that the main characters appealed to me neither Lucy or Renzo Lucy was a bit of a striking violet for my reading taste Still it was listed on the Guardian 1000 list and I m glad that I took the chance to read it just wasn t a story that engaged me. Vvidenza ma un bene da conuistare anche lottando giorno per giorno con le opere e con il nostro impegn. N for any Catholic priest The novel contains two events of great Conversions They Are Moving They are moving and the way Manzoni narrates them by interpreting them as the act of Gods great mercy will edify a Christian reader Besides the passage that contains reprimand of Cardinal Federigo the conversion narratives were my favourite parts of the novel You read a novel and come out spiritually nourished and strengthened Manzoni could do that to meLast Aside Pope Francis ad asked the betrothed couple to read this novel in the weekly general audience in May 2015 That is a solid advice In fact it is a good book to gift to Christian couple already engaged or married or finding difficulty in marriage There are many passages in the novel where Christiansacramental marriage is spoken ighly of The Pope was cunning enough to ask them to read a novel in stead of Church s teaching on marriage For the teaching is found in the novel in a scattered form An all time masterpiece of Italian literature We Italians all study it at
