Venice: Tales Of The City Summary

Venice: Tales Of The City by Michelle Lovric

Elusive and fantastical, Venice is a many-layered confection of history. The writers here have captured what is most important to them in pieces ranging from the city's foundation up to the present time. The voices, entirely diverse, are both international and native: here we meet Hans Christian Andersen, Paolo Barbaro, Bernard Berenson, Mary Braddon, Casanova, Chekov, Thomas Coryate, Gabriele D'Annunzio, John Evelyn, Hans Habe, Hermann Melville, Claude Monet, Margaret Oliphant, Ezra Pound, Rainer Maria Rilke, Francesco Sansovino, Frances Trollope and Elio Zorzi.

Variously a City of the Soul, The Watery City, The Merchant City, City Afloat, City at Play, The Cruel City, City of Courtesans, City of Arts, City of Flavours, The Haunted City and City of the Future, Venice is captured here in all her moods.

Venice: Tales Of The City Reviews

If you're planning a first trip or you're already one of Venice's many lovers, then this collection will make a great companion. * SUNDAY TIMES *
Whether you're already having a life-long affair with Venice or you've always longed to go, this book is a must. Packed with quotes, essays and reflections on this legendary city of art and water, spanning the 15th to the 20th centuries, this definitive * SAINSBURY'S MAGAZINE *
As long as it stands above the waters of its lagoon, Venice's charms will continue to seduce its visitors. I can't easily think of another book that might so beguilingly lead the newly succumbed to prolong their engagement with this most promiscuous of lovers. * INDEPENDENT *
