Abstract: Psychobiography is a treacherous business. It usually tells us more about the biographer than the subject. It is akin to doing dream analysis without having the patient's associations. It is a doubly treacherous undertaking with a man like Verdi. He was a very proud and private person who was immensely secretive about his relationships with his intimates. Additionally, his parents were both illiterate, so there is no record of his childhood.
