Deliberately written in an elegantly out of date variety to reflect the intricacies of the Italian Renaissance, Greaves’ variation vividly exhibits this strange story nonetheless possesses huge energy to surprise, shock, and amuse—five centuries after it first appeared!
We are brought to CLIZIA, a gorgeous little orphan, who has been raised through a prosperous and revered kinfolk as their foster daughter. All is easily till she turns 16 and matures right into a succulent younger lady, all blameless virginal sexuality.
This enflames her foster brother — in addition to her foster father! — with either one of them rabidly aspiring to sexually own the younger woman.
Sofronia, spouse and mom, conscious of their harmful folly, needs to have the option to convey her husband again to his senses, in addition to self-discipline her errant son. luck in returning integrity and decency again to the family members will depend on her use of a surprising sexual deceit — only one of many strange surprises — with CLIZIA’S final destiny putting within the balance.
An irreverently funny examine Renaissance mores — so very varied from today’s! — CLIZIA is generously full of outrageously droll, ribald, and powerful Machiavellian misadventures.
LUST, it should seem—and as we who're clever good know—is by no means out of fashion.
