The Pike by Lucy Hughes-Hallett | Biography of Gabriele D'Annunzio Description

WINNER OF THE 2013 SAMUEL JOHNSON PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION WINNER OF THE 2013 DUFF COOPER PRIZE WINNER OF THE POLITICAL BOOK AWARDS POLITICAL BIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR 2014 WINNER OF THE 2013 COSTA BOOK AWARDS BIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR The story of Gabriele D'Annunzio, poet, daredevil - and Fascist. In September 1919 Gabriele D'Annunzio, successful poet and occasional politician, declared himself Commandante of the city of Fiume in modern day Croatia. His intention - to establish a utopia based on his fascist and artistic ideals. It was the dramatic pinnacle to an outrageous career. Lucy Hughes-Hallett charts the controversial life of D'Annunzio, the debauched artist who became a national hero. His evolution from idealist Romantic to radical right-wing revolutionary is a political parable. Through his ideological journey, culminating in the failure of the Fiume endeavour, we witness the political turbulence of early 20th century Europe and the emergence of fascism. In 'The Pike', Hughes-Hallett addresses the cult of nationalism and the origins of political extremism - and at the centre of the book stands the charismatic D'Annunzio: a figure as deplorable as he is fascinating.

A Great Biography of a Less Than Great Man

Gabriele D'Annunzio was one of the most famous poets of his age, an infamous lothario and the inventor of a form of nationalistic proto-fascism that would directly inspire Mussolini's march on Rome.

In this searing biography, author Lucy Hughes-Hallett does a marvelous job of piecing together the contradictory parts of D'Annunzio's personality into a man we can understand, although not sympathize with. Hallett's writing is constantly engaging and she isn't afraid to play with the form of a biography, employing strong use of narrative time and witty asides to great effect. She does this while presenting a comprehensive and well-researched depiction of D'Annunzio himself and the culture that shaped his art and ideas. Thoroughly recommended for anyone who is interested in 20th Century politics and history.
