Something About Me and My Book:
I graduated in Philosophy at the University of Verona in 1999 after having obtained my diploma in Classical Studies. My first book FIRE WITHIN THE UNIVERSE (2002) is an essay on Medieval Metaphysics and Philosophy of Science, which was partially influenced by my thesis at the University of Verona. My second work THE GREAT ADVERSARY (2007) is an epic novel set between X century England and Scandinavia. Based on a XIII century legend belonging to the Teutonic Order and endowed with strong stylistic analogies with Edgar Allan Poe's tale "William Wilson" and Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Howe's Masquerade", the story covers the literary theme of the Doppelgänger and elevates it to a heroic and initiatory plane.

THE GREAT ADVERSARY by Hermes Varini (ISBN 978-3-89781-112-6)

Brunanburh moors England, 937 A.D. A young soldier lies wounded on the battlefield. A stranger comes by and places a sword under his chin. Henceforward the man will lead him on a journey that will assume the proportions of an epic feat. The Great Adversary is a compelling blend of Viking epos with realistic detail and rich philosophical and symbolic implications. Hermes Varini controls the narrative with a system of structural symmetry and contrast and through a set of intriguing figures. By offsetting the stormy character of the plot in this way, he creates an exceedingly potent atmosphere that leads to one of the most impressive denouements ever told.
