Excerpt from Fogazzaro's Pereat Rochus And un' Idea di Ermes Torranza: Edited With Introduction, Notes, And Vocabulary
His works are numerous; * only the most important will be mentioned. In Miranda novel in verse, the story of an unfortunate love, full of tenderness and noble sentiment, F 0gazzaro reveals himself as a poet of great ability. He shows no less power as a prose writer. In Daniele Cortz's the power of Christian duty saves from an ignominious fall the man who struggles between the senses and lofty ideals. Piccolo Mondo Antico perhaps the best of his novels, makes natural virtue stand perplexed and overwhelmed in the presence of death, while the same virtue strengthened by faith gains courage to fight and to conquer. Piccolo Mondo Moderno teaches that, in the struggle against low human tenden cies, virtue supported by a weak religious sentiment cannot stand firm. Santo a religious novel, in which F ogazzaro's attitude toward the Catholic Church and his ideas of reform are fully discussed, has created a great stir in Italy and has been condemned by the Church. The book is even heralded by some as the greatest modern Italian novel since Promessi Sposi. He has written also many short stories, all showing the same Christian idealism and lofty moral tone.
