Of his many books, Hadrian the Seventh is Baron Corvo’s best known. In this fantastical novel—which includes a flourish of autobiography—a humble British man named George Arthur Rose is elected Pope, taking the name Hadrian VII. He unfolds a grand plan to reform the church and better the world, but can’t help but push his own agenda as well.

About the Author

Baron Corvo (1860-1913) was born Frederick William Rolfe. An English writer, novelist, photographer, and artist, Corvo aspired to the priesthood but did not complete his studies. His early and deep interest in Roman Catholicism and supposed homosexuality helped to form his unique personality, which is manifest in his unusual prose style.
