Read online The Corvo Cult.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Corvo Cult A handsome young publisher who spent weeks every year gambling in Monte Carlo casinos A Catholic monsignor who told fireside ghost stories to undergraduates A shabbily dressed bookseller who lived in a garden hovel A group of university librarians who specialised in arcane literature and erotica A biographer who spent lavishly the subscriptions of his fellow club members A collector whose single mindedness finally overwhelmed him .

What all these men had in common was an unshakeable obsession with the life and work of the English writer Frederick Rolfe better known under his pseudonym Baron Corvo who led a startlingly eventful life outraged Edwardian London and Venice and bequeathed to posterity a cluster of lively and compelling novels and short stories .

Corvo himself had no doubt that he was destined for celebrity Everything that relates to me he proudly wrote will be of interest some day and over the course of the century since his death this unlikely prediction came true albeit not quite in the way he expected Universal fame eluded him but his memory was kept alive by a tiny and obsessive band of enthusiasts adherents of the Corvo cult who collected his books competed for his relics and memorabilia and championed his place in literature .

This book recounts the history of one of the twentieth century s most resilient literary cults Biographies sometimes make tangential mention of posthumous reputations but this is the first time that the trajectory of one particular literary cult has been described with such completeness .

Corvo scholar Robert Scoble has tracked down the cultists letters and notes piecing together their associations and interactions and illuminating in unprecedented detail the unlikely story of the Corvo cult s growth and ultimate prosperity by Robert Scoble
