Prince of Foxes

by Samuel Shellabarger

In Prince of Foxes Dr. Shellabarger has changed his locale, at the same time preserving his favorite period -- the lusty, enterprising, violent and creative era known as the Renaissance. This time the scene is Italy whence came the inspiration for the turbulent rebirth of a new world and where its flowering was most gorgeous -- and in some phases most deadly. This is the story of the mysterious lord Andrea Orsini, a young man of violent accomplishment. In the vast attainments and latent promise of this amazing character, one finds the brilliant contradiction that marked the times from which he sprang. His talents for leadership, intrigue, diplomacy, love and war were too potent even for his very considerable promise as a painter. The age rewarded boldness, daring and imagination backed by force, and Andrea Orsini grasped the chance to use the whole of Italy for a canvas, its leading men and women as his medium.
