Si potrebbe chiamare un romanzo epistolare: è un misto di pagine di diario e di lettere che il protagonista, Rinaldo Morelli, un estimatore del poeta latino Orazio, scrive durante un’estate a Corsenna, un ameno paesello toscano in collina, frequentato da diversi villeggianti dai quali il nostro cerca di tenersi bene alla larga. Ma saranno loro ad andare in cerca di lui e a riempire la pagine dei suoi scritti… soprattutto una certa Galatea.

In this epistolary novel, we find a young woman named Evelina, who was raised in rural seclusion until her eighteenth year because of her uncertain parentage. Through a series of harrowing and humorous events that take place in London and an English resort town, Evelina learns how to navigate the complex layers of 18th century society and earn the love of a distinguished and honorable nobleman. This comedy of manners often satirizes the society in which it is set; Evelina is a significant precursor to later works by Jane Austen and Maria Edgeworth, whose novels explore many of the same issu...
