The ring and the book
The Ring and the Book - Broadview PressI used to wonder, when I stood scarce high As the bed here, what the marble lion meant, With half his body rushing from the wall, Eating the figure of a prostrate man— To the right, it is, of entry by the door An ominous sign to one baptised like me, Married, and to be buried there, I hope. And they should add, to have my life complete, He is a boy and Gaetan by name— Gaetano, for a reason,—if the friar Don Celestine will ask this grace for me Of Curate Ottoboni: he it was Baptised me: he remembers my whole life As I do his grey hair. All these few things I know are true,—will you remember them? Because time flies. The surgeon cared for me, To count my wounds,—twenty-two dagger-wounds, Five deadly, but I do not suffer much— Or too much pain,—and am to die to-night.

All shall be well, all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well. First reading. This is an epic of the small gesture and the ordinary individual, sprouted from the same seed that gave us the novel. The poem is divided into a series of long dramatic monologues, each spoken by one of the principal characters in the story: the nobleman Guido Franceschini , his young wife Pompilia , the priest Giuseppe Caponsacchi. We also hear from the lawyers prosecuting and defending the case, and from the divided people of Rome. The principal interest, however, is not in the facts of the case, but in how each person involved perceived and understood them.
