    1. An excellent compact biography of one the most fascinating figures in classical music. Da Ponte was of course the author of the libretti for Mozart's three greatest operas, but he was also a distinguished poet who did much to advance the study of Italian language and literature in the US.

    2. A very well researched and thorough life of Da Ponte, a man whose life could easily have come from an opera. While the biographer chose to de-emphasize many of the more theatrical aspects and anecdotes about Da Ponte's life, they are mentioned; though they do not form the bulk of the story. Still, an interesting man who did much for the cause of opera, and played a key role in introducing Italian culture and literature to the young nation of America.
