Casanova: Seduction and Genius in Venice

New York Public Library
Giacomo Casanova was a product of both the Enlightenment and the culture of sensuality and indulgence of his native Venice. Author Laurence Bergreen discusses his new biography, which follows Casanova from his impoverished childhood in Venice, through his meteoric rise to world-famous writer and notorious libertine, and on to his humble death as an embittered librarian in a Bohemian castle.
