Arethusa: Look inside the book: In the first place, no one had even
dreamt of the rights of men in 1376; and secondly, the trade in
white slaves was almost as profitable to Venice then as it is in
1906 to certain great states the story-teller could name, with the
advantage that there was no hypocritical secret about it, and that
it was provided for in international treaties, in spite of the
Pope, who said it was wrong; and thirdly, heroes are heroes for
ever in respect of their heroic deeds, but in their daily lives
they are very much like the other men of their class and time, as
you will soon learn if you read the life of Bayard, 'without fear
or reproach, ' written by his Faithful Servitor; for the faithful
one set down some doings of the virtuous knight which a modern
biographer would have altogether left out, but which were no more a
'reproach' to a man in the year 1500, than getting drunk was a
'reproach' in 1700, or than stealing anything over a million is a
'reproach' to-day; fourthly and lastly, if Zeno had virtuously
refused to buy a slave for Marco Pesaro, there would have been no
story to tell, and this seems an excellent argument to the
story-teller himself....There was a fairly broad street behind
Carlo Zeno's house, and here the early spring sun had dried the mud
to something like a solid surface; but Omobono followed this
thoroughfare only for a little distance, and then turned into a
narrow and filthy lane that led to other lanes, and to others still
beyond, all crowded with humanity, all dark and muddy, all foul
with garbage, all reeking with the overpowering smell of Eastern
cooking made up of garlic, frying onions, sour cream, oil 18 of
sesame, and roasting mutton where there were Jews or Mohammedans,
or fried fish where Christians lived, since it was Friday. About F.
Marion (Francis Marion) Crawford, the Author: These are: Ave Roma
Immortalis (1898), Rulers of the South (1900) renamed Southern
Italy and Sicily and The Rulers of the South in 1905 for the
American market, and Gleanings from Venetian History (1905) with
the American title Salvae Venetia, itself reissued in 1909 as
Venice; the Place and the People. ...A fourth book in the series,
Corleone (1897), was the first major treatment of the Mafia in
literature, and used the now-familiar but then-original device of a
priest unable to testify to a crime because of the Seal of the
Confessional; the novel is not one of his major works, having
failed to live up to the standard set by the books earlier in the
