It has been said that 'Beatrice Cenci was ¿ to take a sample of sound-bites over the centuries ¿ a `goddess of beauty¿, a `fallen angel¿, a `most pure damsel¿'. She was also a convicted murderer. This is a charismatic combination, not least in Italy, and her name has lived on,especially in Rome, where she was born and where she was executed in 1599.' 'according to Charles Nicholl' Shelley's take on this historical legend is probably the best known and most important interpretation in literature. This new, scholarly edition is abundantly prefaced and contextualized, and contains some pretty startling findings on other would-be dramatists - like Alfred Nobel 'Mr. Dynamite! - Who'd have thunk?!' who likewise found himself unable to resist morphing into an apologist for La Cenci.
