The Cabala by Thornton Wilder

The Cabala

by Thornton Wilder

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
5 Hrs. 49 Min.


In The Cabala, Samuele, an American student, spends a year in the fabulously decadent world of post-World War I Rome. He experiences firsthand the waning days of a secret community - a "cabala" composed of decaying European royalty, eccentric expatriate Americans, even a great cardinal of the Roman Church. The vivid portraits he paints of these characters, whom he views as the vestigial representatives of the gods and goddesses of ancient Rome, launched Wilder's career as a celebrated storyteller and literary stylist.
