Beatrice Cenci

(1965)
A Book by

 
Moravia's bloody tragedy of the Renaissance Cencis. Beatrice was a young Roman noblewoman (daughter of the vicious & violent Francesco Cenci) whose condemnation to death by Pope Clement VIII aroused public sympathy & became the subject of poems, dramas, & novels, including The Cenci (1819) by Percy Bysshe Shelley. Moravia's works were censored by Mussolini's fascist government, & placed by the Vatican on the Index librorum prohibitarum (Index of Forbidden Books). Especially influenced by the thoughts of Marx & Freud, he sharply criticized our dehumanized, capitalist world.
