Giacomo Casanova - the Venturesome Memoirs

Wednesday, 19 May 2010

Giacomo CasanovaGiacomo Casanova is often confused with Don Juan and they are not the same. Giacomo Casanova is not the literary character but the real historical person who lived some time back and left the traces in the world history. However, the most of information we know about Giacomo is found from his own records and it is too hard to believe and trust the memoirs especially when it matters the spy stories and love affairs.

It is well-know that Casanova wrote of the real events and about real people of the past. We know also that Casanova, the famous spy and the lover, ended in Bohemia, in the castle Dux as a librarian. Along with the count Waldstein, the owner of the castle, Casanova was involved in magic and witchcraft; he used to raise ghosts and tried to acquire the elixir.

His life was dull and tedious, though, and the only relief he found in those famous memoirs which are liked by the world for over two and a half centuries. No wonder if the bored librarian of the dullest town colored the truth a lot. He passed the desirable for reality. He added the intrigue that never existed. And everything could happen and however we are inclined to believe that was factual.

Casanova fascinated lots of women and even after he was dead for many years. In spite of the reputation of the incredible lover, lady-killer and a womanizer, Casanova was mostly involved in the spying. Yet, the wonderful ability to charm women was just the great tool in his major activity.

Giacomo Casanova was born in 1725 in Venice. His mother was an actress and his father was thought to belong to the nobles of Palafox family, though it is not evidenced. 

From the early childhood Casanova kept in touch with people of the higher Venetian society, attachés and aristocrats from abroad. His close relationships with the abbot Berni, the Count of the Lyons, the ambassador of France in the Venetian Republic brought to the involvement of Casanova into the spying activity. When the abbot was assigned the minister of Foreign Affairs in France, he charged Casanova with important missions far from the high society life.

So, in 1758 Casanova was dispatched to Dunkerque with the mission to evaluate the fighting efficiency of the French fleet. Casanova had a charisma to fascinate people, he could get on well with people and introduced as the captain of ships, as the rich loafer, who is rich but ignorant and attractive, and he managed to get on the appropriate ships and keep in touch with the officers.

The people who could not reveal the authentic nature and thoughts of the spy were open to him. And later on, Casanova depicted in his memoirs that it was too easy to report on all the information accumulated. He did not have to use the spying approaches and steal into their places in darkness. The officers were totally opened to him telling all the advantages and drawbacks. Everything that Casanova needed.

The Ministry of Navy had to spend around five hundred louis d'or to arrange the trip of Casanova to Dunkerque apart from the additional expenditures. Casanova considered he did nothing special and the mission was effortless enough to execute by any person.  

The life of Casanova included all ups and downs. He used to be the lieutenant of the Venetian Fleet on the Corfu Island and a year later he earned up as a violinist at the theatre San Samuele. A year later Casanova faced with the senator Bragadin and rendered the first aid during the heart attack and became the adoptee son to the senator and as a result, he was happy and rich.

Two years later Casanova was accused of blasphemy and violence and he had to leave Venice. Further, the craft, Paris and Germany were in his life and Venice eventually. He was arrested and imprisoned to Piombi and he escaped from there to Paris and to Holland, Germany and Switzerland where he met with Voltaire. The geography of his adventures was vast, fro, Russia to Spain.

Casanova was always involved in love affairs though he was not successful all the time. He failed, for instance, with Charpion in England.

Though, he succeeded more often than failed. Plenty of letters to Casanova from various women were discovered and published. And the letters helped to reveal the truth about the love affairs of that womanizer.

The memoirs found he fame and success not because of the true facts depicted, the style itself was fascinating. When the memoirs were first published, the authorship was attributed to Stendhal.

The censorship thoroughly deleted all erotic scenes from Casanova’s memoirs and as a consequence we have the adventurous memoirs like that of Marco Polo. With the lapse of the time the memoirs of Casanova were published as it was without any deletions and omissions.
