A Word, Only a Word by Georg Ebers is a historical novel set during the battle of Lepanto. The story follows the journey of Ulrich, a young artist who embarks on a sea voyage to Italy with dreams of pursuing his passion for art. However, his plans are disrupted when he is betrothed to Isabella, a girl he no longer feels connected to. As Ulrich struggles with his conflicting emotions, he finds himself on a path of self-discovery and redemption. Ulrich's journey takes him through various challenges and experiences, from the excitement of Venice's carnival season to the despair of a failed painting of the Madonna. His encounters with Don Juan of Austria and his friendship with Don Miguel Cervantes add depth to his character, showcasing his courage and compassion in the face of adversity. The novel explores themes of love, betrayal, and the pursuit of artistic excellence. Ulrich's internal struggles mirror the external conflicts of the battle of Lepanto, highlighting the parallels between personal growth and historical events. As Ulrich navigates the complexities of his relationships and ambitions, he ultimately finds solace in the power of art and the resilience of the human spirit. Ulrich, known as Navarrete, is a soldier seeking fame and power. He participates in battles and gains renown, especially after the victory at Lepanto. His journey to deliver news of victory to the king leads him to the Escurial, where he encounters King Philip's indifference to his achievements. Despite his fame, Ulrich feels a void in his heart and questions the true meaning of power and ambition. As he navigates the complexities of military life and politics, he faces challenges and discovers the importance of loyalty and self-discovery. Amidst the chaos of war and mutiny, Ulrich grapples with his identity and the pursuit of his aspirations. The sibyl, a mysterious woman, plays a role in revealing Ulrich's past and connecting him to his roots. Through encounters with allies and adversaries, Ulrich learns valuable lessons about honor, courage, and the true nature of fame. As he navigates the treacherous waters of power and ambition, Ulrich must confront his inner demons and make choices that will shape his destiny.
