about

It is regrettable that this work is unsuitable for younger readers - laden as it is with erotic episodes, frankly told - because it is far more than the inventory of conquests which has made it most famous. Casanova was first known for having escaped from a notorious Ventian prison and he managed through a long and colorful life to meet many a famous figure and to frequent many a glittering circle.
It is both the memoir and autobiography of Giacomo Casanova, a famous 18th century Italian adventurer. Although Casanova was Venetian, the book is written in French, which was the dominant language in the upper class at the time. Despite its title, the book covers Casanova's life only through 1774. Casanova traveled a great deal - not always willingly - and his memoirs give a rich and varied portrait of Paris, Venice, London, Moscow and other European locales, providing glimpses of Voltaire, Mozart and Goethe along the way.
