By Alphonse James Albert Symons,Giorgio Agamben

Scrittore, pittore, fotografo, aspirante sacerdote cattolico e dandy omosessuale, Frederick Rolfe ha rappresentato nella sua vita un personaggio sospeso tra l’abiezione e il senso del elegant, votato alla ricerca del successo e destinato alla sconfitta. L’uomo che volle farsi chiamare Baron Corvo non ottenne in vita il riconoscimento letterario a cui aspirava, ma los angeles sua esistenza si svolse davvero come una drammatica e provocatoria opera d’arte. Quello che sappiamo di lui deriva principalmente dalle indagini di A.J.A. Symons, che ne tracciò nel 1934 questo straordinario ritratto. Symons – affascinato dal suo soggetto, nel quale non poté evitare di riconoscersi almeno in parte – costruisce così un avvincente gioco di specchi, facendo filtrare l’imponente mole di testimonianze attraverso una scrittura limpida e una raffinatissima struttura narrativa.
