Themes[ edit ] The book, set during the Italian Risorgimento , is primarily concerned with the culture of revolution and revolutionaries. Arthur, the eponymous Gadfly, embodies the tragic Romantic hero , who comes of age and returns from abandonment to discover his true state in the world and fight against the injustices of the current one. The landscape of Italy, in particular the Alps , is a pervading focus of the book, with its often lush descriptions of scenery conveying the thoughts and moods of characters.

He discovers radical ideas, renounces Catholicism, fakes his death and leaves Italy. While away he suffers great hardship, but returns with renewed revolutionary fervour. He becomes a journalist, expounding radical ideas in brilliant satirical tracts published under the pseudonym "the gadfly".

The local authorities are soon dedicated to capturing him. Gemma, his lover, and Padre Montanelli, his Priest and also secretly his biological father , show various forms of love via their tragic relations with the focal character of Arthur: religious, romantic, and family.

The story compares these emotions to those Arthur experiences as a revolutionary, particularly drawing on the relationship between religious and revolutionary feelings. Eventually Arthur is captured by the authorities and executed by a firing squad. Montanelli also dies, having lost his faith and his sanity. It is debatable to what extent an allegorical comparison can be drawn between the Gadfly and Jesus.
