Continuación de El Papa del Mar, en la que se da inicio a la historia amorosa que liga a Claudio Borja, un joven poeta valenciano, y Rosaura Salcedo, una rica dama argentina, esta novela en la que prosiguen sus avatares puede leerse perfectamente, sin embargo, como novela suelta.

Si en la anterior era Claudio quien introducía la acción paralela narrando a Rosaura la historia del cismático Benedicto XIII, “el Papa Luna”, aquí es Baltasar Figueras, tío de Claudio, quien evoca vivamente el ascenso y apogeo de los Borgia en la Roma del siglo xv, una ciudad «postrada A los pies de Venus, divinidad despertada después de tantos siglos de sueño mortal».

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Love story that binds Claudio Borja, a young Valencian poet, and Rosa Salcedo, a rich lady of Argentina, this novel in continuing their avatars can be read perfectly, however, as a novel loose.
