Book Description:
Kein geringerer als Dante Alighieri wird hier zum Erzähler. Am Fürstenhof in Verona gibt er seine Geschichte über den Mönch Astorre zum Besten, der, um seinem sterbenden Vater den letzten Willen zu gewähren, sein Mönchsgelübde bricht und heiratet, obwohl er dazu im Inneren keineswegs bereit ist. Er glaubt, einen richtigen Entschluss gefasst zu haben, als er sich mit Diana, der Witwe seines Bruders, verlobt. Doch das für ihn völlig neue weltliche Leben stellt ihn vor Bewährungsproben... - Summary by Eva K.
