And yet until now, this work has been virtually unknown in the English language. The story begins in Naples with the accidental meeting of the narrator--a Danish nobleman--and the mysterious Count Pinamonte, who invites the Dane to his crumbling palace, where, almost without preamble, he proceeds to tell his spellbinding story of a doomed love affair. In relentlessly seeking to know and understand love, the enigmatic count has destroyed it.

But through his passion, he is initiated into a state of all-embracing love for the Creator and creation. A tour de force of the search for love and the search for God and a ferociously dedicated attempt to understand both. The superb translation by Belle N. Burke captures the humor and brilliance of a turbulent monologue that moves between tortured self-recrimination and lucid rapture.
