Although fictional responses to Caravaggio date back to the painter's lifetime (1571–1610), it was during the second half of the twentieth century that interest in him took off outside the world of art history. In this new monograph, the first book-length study of Caravaggio's recent impact. Laura Rorato provides a panoramic overview of this appropriation by popular culture. The extent of the Caravaggio myth, and its self-perpetuating nature, are brought out by a series of case studies involving authors and directors from numerous countries and literary and filmic texts from a number of genres—from straightforward tellings of his life to crime fiction, homoerotic film and postcolonial literature.
