Zanoni is an 1842 novel by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, a story of love and occult aspiration. By way of introduction, the author confesses: "... It so chanced that some years ago, in my younger days, whether of authorship or life, I felt the desire to make myself acquainted with the true origins and tenets of the singular sect known by the name of Rosicrucians." A manuscript came into his hands written in the most unintelligible cipher, a manuscript which through the author's own interpretation became Zanoni.It tells the story of its protagonist Zanoni, who possesses occult powers and knows the secret of eternal life. He loves, pursues, marries, and finally sacrifices himself for Viola, a beautiful girl.
