Description

The Leopard is a modern classic which tells the spellbinding story of a decadent, dying Sicilian aristocracy threatened by the approaching forces of democracy and revolution. In the spring of 1860, Fabrizio, the charismatic Prince of Salina, still rules over thousands of acres and hundreds of people, including his own numerous family, in mingled splendour and squalor. Then comes Garibaldis landing in Sicily and the Prince must decide whether to resist the forces of change or come to terms with them. Every once in a while, like certain golden moments of happiness, infinitely memorable, one stumbles on a book or a writer, and the impact is like an indelible mark. Lampedusas The Leopard, his only novel, and a masterpiece, is such a work Independent INCLUDES RECENTLY DISCOVERED NEW MATERIAL
