Still keeping B-L's basic style, about half the text could have been excised for modern readers. I hope someone will do this someday, giving this novel a chance at more exposure. The long boring digressions explaining history or quoting from earlier writers could have been done away with, or at least abbreviated.

B-L also included an interesting essay on the historical Cola di Rienzi, who was considered in the 19th century as a nationalist figure during the Risorgimento. Recommended as a Victorian period piece about a fascinating period of history.
View 2 comments. Great book A slightly convoluted romantic retelling of a most fascinating period in medieval Roman history. Just as interesting as a document of its own time as it is an interpretation of the history it represents.
Rienzi, the last of the Roman tribunes
Bring it to life! My copy published in Fascinating tale written in a Shakespearian style. Mar 20, Liedzeit rated it it was amazing Shelves: classics. A wonderful book. Do not how the Opera compares with it but it is unlikely that it can come close to it. The story starts with two brothers getting into some brawl, the younger one gets killed by some members of the ruling families of Rome. The other goes into politics and eventually becomes the last tribune. A man from the people.
According to Lytton a true man and a political genius. And wishing away any doubts I wholeheartedly believe him. Have to read it up in Gibbon. A little bit on the vai A wonderful book. A little bit on the vain glory side. He fights against the families, gets rid of street robbery and other misery.
People love him. People betray him. Great scenes, where Lytton describes how the mob changes mind.

He gets the beautiful lady. Sister is in love with one of family members. The good guy. Walter de Montreal is the Nemesis, one of the best characters I ever encountered in fiction. A mean guy but not your typical bad guy.
Rienzi is driven away from Rome ends up in prison in Avignon, returns because of a clever scheme by his wife who convinces the grey eminence that only Rienzi can get the Pope back to Rome. In the end, Rienzi and the lovely lady get killed. Traitor is the young boy whom they had practically adopted but who turns up to be the son of Montreal. Where is Walter Ulrich when you need him. I want this to be the next four-part TV movie. Great first line, great dedication.
