The fourth chapter instead examines the spiritualistic tales of Luigi Capuana, an author who entered into a friendly debate with Lombroso which lasted a quarter of a century regarding the nature of the spirit world. The fifth chapter is on two operas. The first, Verdi and Arrigo Boito's Otello, is an opera in which the portrayal of the protagonist is distinctly informed by Lombroso's racist ideology. The second, Mascagni and Daspuro's L'amico Fritz, is similarly molded by Lombroso's conflicted writings on Jews and gypsies.
