5.0 out of 5 stars A Novel to challenge and disturb.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 August 2018
Morris West has been for years one of my favourite authors. Although this is a novel, it is about a real person. Giordano Bruno actually lived in the 16th century. The Last Confession was West's final novel. In fact he died before finishing it. The novel in many ways was his swan song and what a song it is. Giordano Bruno was someone with whom Morris identified. Bruno was that perilous individual, a free spirit, and suffered death for his right to proclaim his ideas. Tom Keneally in his excellent forward makes the point that Giordano Bruno was a kind of soul mate to Morris West. It is probably true to say that Bruno was the most exuberant of Catholic Heretics.
"Failed priest, fugitive monk, magus with a box of conjuring tricks, boaster, prevaricator, would be torchbearer, trudging through his own darkness, garrulous in dialogue, viperous in debate," are all descriptions of Bruno that West portrays in his magnificent novel. Giordano Bruno, the unfrocked Dominican Friar, was burnt at the stake for challenging the legalistic approach to faith and for attempting to see what light of truth the Protestant reformers threw on traditional dogma. The novel is a fitting farewell from Morris West. He brings to life a man who was burnt at the stake rather than recant or deny his beliefs.
