Al igual que en Melmoth, es narrado con historia dentro de otras, y mediante diarios. Buena novela poco conocida injustamente, que es mejor que Melmoth.
I read the edition: To tell you the awful truth, I enjoyed this book immensely - more than Melmoth, which was too, too revolting in some places. This one was just revolting enough! The speeches in which Schemoli Schemoli-Schedoni; I know describes his life? Maturin has, I think - and it's hardly an original observation - a [These notes were made in Maturin has, I think - and it's hardly an original observation - a combination of the gruesome-Lewis with the suggestive-Radcliffe which can be downright spooky.
The two heroes were refreshingly unvapid. One wonders if Maturin meant to make Annibal end up loving his half-sister, or whether he just discovered it at the last minute himself and had to kill her off! Short of Frankenstein , which is in an altogether different class, I must say this is the best "Gothic" I've read in a long while.
