Summary Ë eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Alessandro ManzoniI promessi sposi

I promessi sposi review à eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF I cristiani spiega come la fede che anima i suoi personaggi non sia un affidarsi passivamente alla pro. When I began this novel I was not sure whether I would complete it The reason I began it in the wrong time that is when I had many other responsibilities So it could never have served as a gap filler in the days Also a thick volume would entail many days in such a tight schedule I was sure to be discouraged But as the book came in the package and as I began to read it I was immediately fascinated by the characters and the place described I gave it a try and now I have completed the book and my responsibilities stare at me LolThis is considered to be an Italian Classic And it is a Classic indeed The blurb at the back of the novel states thus Two lovers must face tyrants war riots plague and famine as they struggle to be together in this teeming panorama of seventeenth century Italian life the original historical novel I think that is a great summary of the entire book But it has said hardly anything I mean the experience that the reader has as heshe reads through the pages is irreplaceable The reader will literally walk the paths in the district of Lecco and lanes in the city of Milan of the 17th century Not only that heshe also will go through the significant events as the participant observer Reading through the events of famine the war the riot in Milan and especially the plague is eual to living through the events When Renzo the main protagonist was running away I felt myself running away and when he felt indignant I felt myself indignant When I saw through the eyes of Renzo the pathetic situation of plague in Milan it repulsed me If it was not for the search of Lucia I surely would have abandoned the city long time back I put up with Renzo because I was as anxious as Renzo to find out what happened to Lucia Renzo s betrothed Another part that you cannot miss is the farewell to the mountains that comes at the end of the first part of the novel The protagonists run from their village to escape a great danger and as they move from their place they take leave of their place It will move you to tearsPowerful evocation is not all that made this novel great This novel is also about wonderful character studies Renzo stands for a good hearted simple peasantsilk weaver who gets into trouble because of his impulsive behaviour As and when situation reuired he also could exercise certain cunning faculty that he has in his possession Lucia his lover is just the opposite She is innocent as dove and who has complete faith in the Providence She sees God in every moment even when she finds herself in danger She never compromises her Christian values for anything She is a saint Don Abbondio is the cure of both Lucia and Renzo But he does not marry them because he is frightened by the tyrant don Rodrigo who has an eye for Lucia He is an epitome of a person who will put his own self before everything else If such attitude will result in much sufferings for the others he is not worried I can go on talking about other characters the nun in Monza the Unnamed the Cardinal Federigo Borremeo Capuchin friar Christopher etc This novel is also typically Catholic The seventeenth century Italy was Catholic and so it is not a surprise But then the fact that Italy also had produced Giovanni Boccaccio already in the 14th century stands to prove that there were opinions contrary to Catholic Church in Catholic Italy Manzoni here in this novel however stands as a staunch Catholic heralding the Catholic opinions In fact he also must have been very well versed in theology The speeches given by Capuchin Friar Christopher and the sermon by another Capuchin at the end of the novel are excellent spiritual commentaries on many aspects forgiveness faith in Providence mercy of God etc There is a passage in which Cardinal Federigo reprimands Don Abbondio for not doing his priestly duty The reprimand runs for two chapters In fact they are wonderful source of spiritual inspiration for any Catholic priest The novel contains two events of great conversions They are moving descriptions 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 had 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 highly 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

If you can get through the first 100 pages of The Betrothed which are entirely plot extremely operatic and full of bumbling intrigues I suspect you will ultimately find it rewarding It concerns two young peasants from a village near Lake Como in 1628 Lorenzo and Lucia who are engaged But a local scoundrel the wealthy and tyrannical Don Rodrigo has taken a shine to Lucia and has his ruffians threaten the priest who is supposed to conduct the wedding so the wedding is foiled and Lucia and Lorenzo both flee in different directions for their personal safety Manzoni interrupts the plot often to give us historical background on wars political intrigues ecclesiastical happenings famine and pestilence sometimes uoting historians directly His tone shifts between comical and tragic some characters are clownish others entirely pure of heart some well meaning but foolish some wholly evil It reminded me somewhat of Candide although its occasional satirical tone never approaches the pungency of Voltaire sI wanted to know about Gertrude the mysterious Nun of Monza one of the fascinating characters Her story should have been developed view spoiler and she should have popped up again later in the novel Her plotline needed of an arc hide spoiler
