Item description for Casanova's Return to Venice by Arthur Schnitzler...
One of Schnitzler's most poignant evocations of the passing of time and the ironies of sentiment and love. Casanova's Return to Venice tells the story of an ageing Casanova's desperate desire to return to the city he truly loves after a live of exile, a desire which is contrasted with his still libidinous, sensuous yet weary pursuit of women, money and prestige.
