He will do whatever it takes to unlock their secrets.
From the classic story by Henry James.
” Set in Venice in the late 19th century, it tells of an American editor determined to get his hands on the letters his icon, the Romantic poet Jeffrey Aspern, wrote to his beautiful lover and muse, Juliana Bordereau. Juliana lives in a Venetian palazzo with her niece Miss Tina, who she seems to control and Morton tries to manipulate. But when the ambitious adventurer trifles with Miss Tina’s affections she learns to see through his scheme.
The Aspern Papers tells a story of obsession, grandeur lost and dreams of Byronic adventures.
