(p.150) Chapter 5 The Bravos Of Venice
Mercenaries in British and American Literature, 1790-1830

Simpson Erik

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter discusses another novel by James Fenimore Cooper, The Bravo, and aims to investigate the development of a transatlantic literature about the recently fallen Venetian Republic and its bravos. The Venetian bravo is defined as an assassin for hire, and shows the characteristics of a traditionally monstrous mercenary. The chapter shows that the Venetian bravo has become a foreign figure of the domestic mercenary.
