Description
Timid little Mr. Celzani is consumed by love for gymnast Maria Pedani, with whom he shares an apartment block, in this comic 1892 novel by Edmondo De Amicis. Even with the well-intentioned assistance of friends, Celzani finds his romantic efforts repeatedly thwarted by his beloved's single-minded focus on her rigorous physical discipline. As Celzani's ardor increases, so does the certainty of his total humiliation. In his foreword, Italo Calvino affectionately analyzes the novel, while in the introduction, translator David Chapman discusses De Amicis and Italian athletic culture in the late 19th century.
