"Everyone felt his own beloved person threatened," notes the narrator of Svevo's sarcastic tale of a bungling murderer--an underemployed porter known derisively as "il signore" by his equally down-at-heel friends--on the loose in the streets of Trieste.

"L'assassinio di via Belpoggio" was first published in installments in 1890 and was Svevo's first major story.
