“The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.”

― Niccolò Machiavelli

 

Niccolo Machiavelli is one of the most important figures in 15th- and early 16th-century Renaissance philosophy. His works helped define what has become political science. While Machiavelli was known for his political influence, he also wrote works of fiction which influenced English authors. Perhaps the most notable of this genre was ‘Belfagor Arcidiavolo’.

 

Also known as ‘The Devil Takes a Wife’, this short Italian novel rooted in Medieval Slavic folktales, is a story about males arriving in hell, blaming their miserable lives on their early wives. The Devil returns to earth, takes a wife, and eventually denounces the whole concept of marriage after seeing the vanity of women.

 

This 1748 French edition, under the title ‘Le Demon Marie’, was published in La Haye by Jean Neaulme.
