A Man of Character is the story of Erasmo Stiler, an engineer who inherits a derelict villa and destroys himself attempting to transform its garden into 'a sort of Versailles' in an attempt to tame chaos. It is a book about the relationship between art and nature, the importance of living one's life as a moral project and the dangers of demanding of others that their behaviour be totally rational.
