CASANOVAS HEIMFAHRT PDF

He is no longer handsome. His power over his fellows, over women no less than over men, had vanished. Only where he evoked memories could his words, his voice, his glance, still conjure His day was done! Only where he evoked memories could his words, his voice, his glance, still conjure… His day was done! Intellectually he fancies himself the equal or superior to Voltaire, against whom he is preparing a polemic. A chance meeting on the road leads him into the lives of a group of local people, creating a forum in which the tensions of his inner life play out.

He is no longer handsome. His power over his fellows, over women no less than over men, had vanished. Only where he evoked memories could his words, his voice, his glance, still conjure His day was done! Only where he evoked memories could his words, his voice, his glance, still conjure… His day was done! Intellectually he fancies himself the equal or superior to Voltaire, against whom he is preparing a polemic.

A chance meeting on the road leads him into the lives of a group of local people, creating a forum in which the tensions of his inner life play out. There is his amiable and generous host Olivo; his hostess Amalia, hot to resume an old liaison with Casanova; their 13 year old daughter.

There is a playful aristocratic Marchesa and her husband the Marchese, who is enraged at being openly cuckolded by the coolly insolent young soldier Lorenzi. There is the calm and lovely young Marcolina, focused on intellectual pursuits.

This group spend two days and nights together, in gardens, bedrooms, at dinners and at the gambling table. Spoiler alert The charms of Amalia are stale to Casanova, who tries to put her off by emphasising his own physical decay. It is Marcolina who he must have: Marcolina, who holds the youth and beauty that he has lost. She offers him a dignified friendship across the generational and gender divide, with gentle intellectual sparring between equals, but she recoils at every glimpse of his lust.

In fact she is sending him into a confused frenzy of despair, self-deceiving hope, and desperate calculation. His second return to youth, in the form of Venice, is also pathetic: he is only allowed back as a police spy, reporting on hot headed young men of the kind that he once was. The girl does not show any distress during or after the event, rather she is excited and conspiratorial.

Casanova cynically reflects that he managed to have grandmother, mother and daughter. The incident seems designed to throw further light on his character, but it may overshadow the rest of the story for many modern readers.
