"Zanoni" - Zanoni, a timeless Rosicrucian brother, cannot fall in love without losing his power of immortality; but he does fall in love with Viola Pisani, a promising young opera singer from Naples, the daughter of Pisani, a misunderstood Italian violinist. An English gentleman named Glyndon loves Viola as well, but is indecisive about proposing marriage, and then renounces his love to pursue occult study. The story develops in the days of the French Revolution in 1789. Zanoni has lived since the Chaldean civilisation. His master Mejnor warns him against a love affair but Zanoni does not heed. What will happen to Zanoni now? Will his love for Viola succeed? Or, will his occult powers vanish completely? Read on!
"Zicci" - In many ways, this is a prequel to the latter. Yet, it has its own distinct flavour. Written in serial format in 1841, it remained unfinished until the same story was reworked from top to bottom and became an iconic classic, "Zanoni." This edition brings to you both of these versions together for your utmost reading pleasure!
