Translated from the Italian
In Vice, Virtue and Poverty, a desperately poor young girl decides to surrender her virtue in order to relieve her family from cold and hunger. But rescue comes from an unexpected quarter. A nobleman who has squandered two fortunes and is reduced to poverty in The Gentleman Beggar finds an unlikely benefactor in a former servant. In a Lamb between Two Wolves, the unbridled greed and wickedness of his uncle finds ingenious ways to reduce a young and healthy heir to a large fortune to a dying wastrel.
