The brooding, introverted Count von O- arrives in Venice during the carnival in order to escape from his duties and live incognito. But after encountering an enigmatic Armenian stranger who makes an uncanny pronouncement, a bizarre chain of events unfolds, involving a Jesuit secret society, a ghostly seance and a mysterious Sicilian magician - leading the Count to question his faith and morality.

First serialized in 1787-89, this multilayered, fragmentary novel - which gave Friedrich Schiller a platform to expound his Enlightenment ideas on society and religion - has thrilled and engaged lovers of Gothic literature for over two centuries.

The German poet, playwright, philospher and historian Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) was, along with Goethe, the leading figure of the Weimar Classicism movement, which combined elements of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Classicism.

Frederick von Schiller was something more than a great author; he was also in an eminent sense a great man; and his works are not more worthy of being studied for their singular force and originality than his moral character for its nobility and aspiring grandeur. -- Thomas De Quincey
