    2. نخستین و مهمترین نکته برای من که بسیار تأسف برانگیزه، پرداختن اندک به جزئیات زندگی کازانووا - و به طور خاص تعداد بسیار کم نقل قول ها از کتاب خاطرات کازانووا - است. من از کتابی که به زندگی کازانووا می پردازه انتظار دارم به "زندگی" کازانووا بپردازه! و حس نمی کنم انتظارم بی راه باشه- [...]


    3. Sorprende che nel 1928 Stefan Zweig decida di raccontare (mirabilmente, come sempre) un personaggio del genere. Pochi anni dopo, nel ’33, le sue opere saranno bruciate dai nazisti, costringendolo a lasciare l’Austria per il lungo esilio che si concluderà nel ’42 con il suicidio in Brasile. Zweig descrive Casanova come un uomo senz’anima, superficiale, un avventuriero privo di profondità spirituale, incapace persino di pensare il futuro. Asociale e anaffettivo.Interessante il raffronto [...]


    4. Dacă sunt 100% sinceră, trebuie să recunosc că l-a citit pe Casanova acum câţiva ani şi nu mi-a plăcut din cauza stilului său de a scrie. Desigur, escapadele au fost amuzante pe alocuri, dar am rămas rece la majoritatea poveştii lui. În schimb, pentru Stefan Zweig e clar că acest personaj este obiectul unei fascinaţii profunde. Zweig este un scriitor incredibil şi mi-a plăcut interpretarea lui a vieţii lui Casanova, dar mai ales a importanţei sale în literatura universală. M- [...]


    5. Casanova is probably one of my favorite characters who was actually a real person. I am not sure if his memoirs are truthful, but I sure enjoy them. Also it's interesting how other writers look at Casanova, such as Stefan Zweig. The "myth" of Casanova is such, that a man who is in exile for the most of his life, dreams up a new identity of sorts. Or is it?


    6. Read this in 2003 or so. Got it at St. Marks Bookstore in NYC. Read it on the subway once. It was flowing and good. Read it soon after reading Sebald for the first time and thought they were akin. Can't remember much else. Lost it along the way.
