After a passionate but ill-fated love affair with the beautiful married woman Clara, the young army officer Giorgio is transferred from Milan to Parma, where he meets the sickly and unattractive Fosca, the cousin of his commander. Although initially repelled by her, he becomes fascinated by her and slowly succumbs to her morbid, manipulative charms. A witty and satirical critique of romance, desire and bourgeois sexual conventions, Tarchetti sophisticated and controversial novel is a masterpiece of nineteenth-century Italian decadent literature.
