Zanoni

I have a new section in the bibliography for odd books.  These are books that aren't primary sources, but we might be able to gather a little about the Count from them.

I really just created the section for a book called Zanoni.

Bulwer-Lytton, Edward.  Zanoni.  Saunders & Oatley; London, 1842.  2008 reprint.

I bought a physical copy from Forgotten Books, but you can read a free copy from Project Gutenberg.

Here is the blurb about the book from wikipedia:
"Zanoni, a timeless Rosicrucian brother, cannot fall in love without losing his power of immortality; but he does fall in love with Viola Pisani, a promising young opera singer from Naples, the daughter of Pisani, a misunderstood Italian violinist. An English gentleman named Glyndon loves Viola as well, but is indecisive about proposing marriage, and then renounces his love to pursue occult study. The story develops in the days of the French Revolution in 1789. Zanoni has lived since the Chaldean civilisation. His master Mejnor warns him against a love affair but Zanoni does not heed. He finally marries Viola and they have a child. As Zanoni experiences an increase in humanity, he begins to lose his gift of immortality. He finally dies in the guillotine during the French Revolution."

Rumor is Bulwer-Lytton based Zanoni on the Count!  That is why I now own this book.  I haven't read it yet.  I have so much to get through, but I will read this book soon.

It would be cool to have a book discussion on this book.  If you're interested, let me know.  It'll be like a book club.  I'll probably start reading in February.  Just leave me a comment below or find me on facebook. My facebook.

I would also like to have some group discussions on The Most Holy Saint Trinosophie.
