Summary

Casanova, the Prince of Italian adventurers, is remembered as a libertine and rogue. Few know the true story of his remarkable life - and of the duel he once fought with a Polish Count." On the run from the Venetian authorities, Casanova was forced to become an exile. Far from destitute, however, his reputation afforded him shelter throughout Europe, and gained him admission into society's highest circles. Yet there, he soon found himself implicated, insulted, and forced to enter into a duel over a ballerina - a lady in whom neither he nor his Polish rival had the slightest interest. Describing the dramatic encounter and its surprising outcome with sardonic and even blase humour, Casanova creates a work of thrilling adventure, and proves his literary prowess.
