Emilio Salgari - The Sandokan Series, The Black Corsair Series, The Pirates of Bermuda Series

della novels

Writer, born in Verona, Veneto, N Italy. A journalist, his first short stories, Tay-see and I selvaggi della Papuasia (both 1883), were published in instalments in local papers with great popular success. He wrote many adventure novels set in exotic locations, in which an evocative atmosphere makes up for poverty of style, including I misteri della jungla nera (1895) and Il corsaro nero (1899). His best-known novels feature Sandokan, as in I pirati della Malesia (1897), Le tigri di Mompracem (1901), and Sandokan alla riscossa (1907).
