Bomarzo was definitely one of the best reading experiences of my lifeFar than a typical historical novel Bomarzo is a one of a kind introspective extensive view over the thoughts and actions of the protagonist the duke of Bomarzo and his slow descent towards the heart of darkness The writing of Mujica L inez conveys such a trip with the finest of details in a baroue style that is nothing short of bewitchingFar beyond being a notorious display of the Italian Renaissance Bomarzo is a uniue character study one that we can extrapolate to our very selves because just like the duke of Bomarzo we secretly long for immortality and we have to live in the fine balance between our wish for wisdom and the perfect control of mind over our bodies and our animal carnal instinct for sexual pleasureIf we have to label Bomarzo as an historical novel I d say it is the first one that chronicles the History of the human mind itselfRecommended for everyone who s not afraid of 600 page books with small print As Ant nio Mega Ferreira wrote Bomarzo is completely unputdownable

Bomarzo Author Manuel Mujica Láinez Free download õ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Manuel Mujica Láinez Ñ 8 Free read Read Bomarzo Author Manuel Mujica Láinez En 1958 Manuel Mujica Lainez visitó el bosue sagrado de Bomarzo poblado de esculturas fabulosas Su erudición su infatigable curiosidad por todas las empresas de la imaginación lo impulsaron a ver de cerca ese lugar ideado en el siglo XVI por el duue Pier Fr. Perhaps you are aware of Bomarzo the Garden of Monsters created in northern Italy by a 16th century nobleman and great patron of the arts Pier Francesco Orsini If not please take a look on the web as there is ample information recounting the garden s history including many photos of the actual works of architecture and art And of course as you can see I have included pics of a number of the sculpted monsters One of the greatest admirers of Bomarzo was the Argentine author Manuel Mujica L inez 1910 1984 who was so taken by what he saw and read he wrote this sumptuous 600 page novel And readers of English are fortunate to have this work translated from the Spanish by none other than Gregory Rabassa Here is the garden s creator and first person narrator Pier Francesco Orsini on the coincidence of his being born at 200 in the morning on March 6 the same time and date but slightly different year as Michelangelo In truth the stars that presided over our respective appearances on life s chessboard had arranged their players for uite different matches For lovers of historical novels particularly novels set in renaissance Italy many are the famous characters rubbing elbows with Pier Francesco Benvenuto Cellini to name just one To add a real zest to the storytelling we discover on the first few pages that Pier Francesco is speaking of his life and beloved Bomarzo in a most unusual way We read Our dwelling changed with the passage of time and lost all trace of grandeur until its last anonymous remains disappeared in 1937 when Benito Mussolini ordered the opening of the Via della Conciliazione which gave a clear view of Saint Peter s Wow Turns out Pier s horoscope foretold how he would live forever which seems to be a true prediction since he is relaying his story as a four hundred and fifty year old 20th century man Herein lies the novel s charm we have the entire arc of an Italian renaissance aristocrat s retelling of his life in the 16th century among princes barons lords ladies cardinals and famous artists architects and sculptors but also a life filled with emotional and physical abuse latent homosexuality impotence and living as a deformed hunchback conveyed with the intelligence of 20th century psychoanalysis No wonder this one of a kind novel was a best seller in Argentina at the time of publication And make no mistake Manuel Mujica L inez s novel is written in highly stylized baroue as for example when Pier describes the forces protecting him in his boyhood including his beloved grandmother the one and only person who lavished affection on him and served as a shield against his sadistic father and the cruelty of his brothers With her prideful insistence which many readers will judge bold and demoralizing primary school teachers particularly if there are such among my readers Diana Orsini furnished me with what nature had denied me a security in myself in my own strength which since it was lacking in me I had to seek in other forces real or fantastic until I could afford myself a vigor and a faith that came if not from me from a mysterious cohort as old as the history of my family which gathered about my weak figure the breastplates of Constantius and Theodosius II who had anointed us princes along with the papal tiaras of Celestine III Stephen III and Paul I the last two both saints and Nicholas III the one who dreamed of dividing Italy up among his Orsini nephews and the mantles of the endless flow of ueens from our house ueens of Poland Naples Humgary Thessaly Castile and Empresses of the West and swords brandished by the Orsini warriors who made Italy tremble with the brazen noise of their parades and skirmishes tracing a wide seven colored freize which encircled my timidity and my exhaustion a frieze in which there stood out above the crowns scepters croziers flags and the stiff plumed helmets the swaying figures of the black bears as they rose up in their supreme and fearful majesty In case you missed it the above uote chock full of references to all those princes and clergy jewels and ornaments is contained in one sentence I mention this so as to underscore the style of the writing from beginning to end ornate bordering on rococo Perhaps this is a prime reason Jorge Luis Borges ordinarily no lover of novels bestowed praise on the author for what he accomplished with Bomarzo This is a novel of surprises thus I ve gone easy on plot As a nod to the arts I will conclude with two uotes where Pier Francesco speaks of his garden on two separate occasions My collections my famous collections have grown in a strange way They were my faithful image because they were absurd intricate and perhaps monstrous also they were frivolous Only a dilettante with strange tastes could have gathered them all together My life my life transfigured into symbols preserved for the centuries eternal imperishable That was what I had to tell in Bomarzo those woods would be the Sacred Wood of Bomarzo the garden of symbols of monsters Every stone would have a symbol within it and all together going up the slope where they had been strewn and settled by age old cataclysms they would be the immense and arcane monument of Pier Francesco Orsini No one no pontiff no emperor would have a monument like that
