The Bravo: A Venetian Story. Di James Fenimore Cooper
Keywords:James Fenimore Cooper
AbstractDuring his three-month stay in Sorrento starting August 30, 1829, James Fenimore Cooper rented two floors of a sumptuous palazzo at what he saw as a convenient price. Today you can still take up lodgings in this historic building, where Torquato Tasso was born and lived his early years, but at the time of this writing it will cost you upwards of €150.00 ($195.00) per night for a single room. When beggars thronged outside his gates, Cooper did what he could for them. However, his mind-set as an American was so far from that of his surroundings that, enjoyable as his stay was, he found no inspiration for any specific literary work.
