Novelist, playwright, and poet Gabriele D'Annunzio (1863-1938) shocked and dazzled early twentieth-century Europe with his sexual exploits, military feats, and political escapades. More than any other figure since the unification of Italy, he casts a shadow forward to the present day. His relationships with the worlds of Italian culture, theatre, and politics were unique, fiery, and always controversial. His literary achievements have influenced generations of Italian writers. This is the most authoritative biography of the man in any language.

This work is well written and of great interest to those who admire people who function outside of those conventions, ever changing as they are, which men refer to as normal.

A mass of seeming contraditions, D'Annunzio was a sort of Dickensian character who does not fit into any convenient mental "box."

Hedonist and altruist; hero and scoundrel; poetic genius and shameless plagiarist; draft dodger and war hero, freedom-fighter and "fascist"... How can one man be so many things? Only a genius could have pulled it off. He pulled it off.

Nietzsche once said his "superman" would be "rich in contradictions." He must have been thinking of D'Annunzio!

Perhaps the greatest Italian poet since the Ancients, he was also a political animal, who was - incorrectly and unfortunately - blackballed by History for his association with Benito Mussolini.

In fact, Mussolini feared his popularity and bought him off with wealth and honours; though he was an old man by then.

His greatest feats were becoming a war hero in his 50's during "The Great War," as well as seizing the port of Fiume, which the WW I Victors decided had to be part of Yugoslavia (their little multi-cultural fantasy kingdom, which has since self-destructed of course...) rather than Italy; despite the fact that it was ethnically mostly Italian. He held it for over a year in defiance of the League of Nations and the tyranny of "The Allies," and ruled it with a firm but just hand... until the Italian Navy, under pressure from Wilsonian Internationalists and their prostitutes, threatened to bombard it. He relinquished his control of it rather than see it destroyed.

In his 70's when Mussolini made the fatal mistake of allying his country with Hitler, D'Annunzio, to his credit, was opposed to the "Axis" with Germany.

Though this work overly focuses on D'Annunzio's personal and sexual interests to its discredit (though very popular with modern audiences, of course, who thrive on merde, champignons that they are!) - it's time D'Annunzio received a fair and unbiased appraisal of his accomplishments and his art. This work comes somewhat close to that ideal, and quotes liberally from D'Annunzio's poetry, which, to even this un-Italian ear, sounds like music.

D'Annunzio was probably the most interesting individual who lived in the 20th Century, and in a more fair-minded era, his accomplishments might be esteemed more highly.

Did I say he wrote (in French!) the libretto to Debussy's "Martyrdom of Saint Sebastien"? That he had his hand in that masterpiece merely adds to the allure of an unimaginably interesting and accomplished life!

An objective motion picture of this man's life would be unbelieveable, and would put the antics of Errol Flynn to shame. It's regrettable that our age despises "the heroic" - for that, is D'Annunzio!

Good biography, well researched.

I make no comments on D'Annunzio except to note that I have been astonished at the content, style and achievement of his poetry (my main interest). I decided to read a biography to learn more about the poet. We are fortunate to have this study. I think Mr. Woodhouse is an exceptionally fine biographer with a mastery of fact and detail and insight into the motives and personality and time of D'Annunzio. The writing is engaging and interesting and (I'm no scholar of D'Annunzio) seems to be carefully unbiased and authoritative. I am annoyed that this fine book is out of print already and is now very expensive (for my budget).
