I signed up because I admire Dr Stasiowski rather than because of a particular interest in Casanova. I expected an excellent lecture and it more than met my expectations. I have long been interested in Venice and now I am also interested in Casanova.
My very limited knowledge of Casanova was expanded and put into the context of Venice and the time frame in which he wrote and lived.
The questions raised by the writing of memoires was brilliantly raised as well as the theatricality of Venice and its influence on Casanova's writing.
And such magnificent images of Venice were an added delight.
Dont miss Kristin's conversations - you will always learn, enjoy and delight in the time spent with her.
Well! I learned that Casanova was not only infamous as a lecherous man but a famous writer of a very long autobiography!!
