Om Paolo Unbound
Baron Paolo Castorini is a man of the lower nobility who is enslaved by an uncontrollable sex drive. His adventures, sometimes tragic and often grotesque, constitute a veritable descent into hell as Paolo's prolonged and predatory encounters become an attempt to escape his obvious moral and physical decay.The bravado and chauvinism in this novel represent the defeat of reason in the face of the flesh, a metaphor addressed to the bourgeois society of pre-war Italy.
