    Machiavelli has been attributed to the term “The ends justify the means”, and this book has given us the word Machiavellian to describe unscrupulous politicians. Machiavelli was not only a political theorist, but he also wrote comedies, carnival songs, and poetry.   The Comedies of Machiavelli by Niccolo Machiavelli, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide/5(39).

    By: Niccolò Machiavelli () Machiavelli has created a ruthless guide on how to rule the country in his volume "The Prince". The book is dedicated to Lorenzo De Medici, the ruler of Florence. The author explains in simple language about the nature of great men and the characters of the government.5/5(10). The first known review of the most famous work of the Florentine Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince, certainly did not anticipate a best-seller: “I found this type of book to be written by an enemy of the human race” (Kraye ), concluded the Cardinal Pole five years after the death of the Italian writer in , when the book finally got into press.

    Machiavelli writes in the prologue to Clizia that comedies were invented for the dual purpose of amusing and benefiting the audience. Clizia is no exception. It is a raucous comedy about love that extends to the scandalous, but it also contains a serious teaching about managing passions and relationships. Niccolò Machiavelli (Florence, Italy, 3 May – 21 June ) was a Florentine official at the time of the Medicis. He was a diplomat, political philosopher, playwright, and a civil servant of the Florentine Republic. He also wrote comedies, carnival songs, poetry, and some of the best-known personal correspondence in the Italian language.
