88 editions published between 1820 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A leading figure in Italian Romanticism and the Risorgimento, Alessandro Manzoni (1785-1873) is best known for The Betrothed, a historical novel set in northern Italy in the early seventeenth century. Although the success of this monumental novel eclipsed his reputation as a playwright, Manzoni himself prominently placed his two verse tragedies, The Count of Carmagnola (1820) and Adelchis (1822), at the beginning of a volume of his complete works, emphasizing their personal significance in his oeuvre. Both dramas reflect Manzoni's lifelong passion for history and confirm Georg Lukacs's assessment of Manzoni as "the most important exponent of historical drama at the time in Western Europe."" "Adelchis, set at the end of the eighth century, describes the events that led to the fall of the Lombard Kingdom under the joint reign of Desiderius and his son Adelchis. The Count of Carmagnola chronicles the conflict between the title character, a fiery Renaissance general, and the Republic of Venice. In his enthusiastic review of The Count of Carmagnola, Goethe congratulated Manzoni for "having abandoned the old rules and made such serious and firm progress on the new path that one can now form new rules on the model of this work.""

I promessi sposi<<ist der bedeutendste Roman der italienischen Literatur.

Das Ganze spielt vor dem Hintergrund der norditalienischen Geschichte des 17. Jahrhunderts; berühmt geworden ist die Beschreibung der von der Pest verheerten Stadt Mailand.

La storia nota di un curato di campagna pauroso e vile che, minacciato dai bravi, si rifiuta di sposare due giovani, è il capolavoro della letteratura italiana del XIX secolo. Manzoni trova la forma e la lingua perfetta solo alla terza edizione, a cui aggiunge l'inedita Storia della colonna infame: ideale conclusione del romanzo, racconta il processo contro due presunti untori, ulteriore esempio di oppressione dei potenti nei confronti degli umili. I promessi sposi sono, in questo senso, affresco e sintesi della società italiana di ogni tempo: la prepotenza di Don Rodrigo, l'ingenuità di Renzo, l'innocenza di Lucia, il coraggio di Padre Cristoforo ... Ma soprattutto la vigliaccheria di don Abbondio, un brav'uomo che fa quel che deve; ma a fare di più, se c'è da mettersi in mezzo, proprio non ci sta. Studiati, parodiati, usati come modello, I promessi sposi raccontano un'Italia che non è cambiata mai
