Orlando Furioso by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )

2,644 editions published between 1516 and 2018 in 16 languages and held by 15,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With this new verse translation of Orlando Furioso ("Mad Orlando"), David R. Slavitt introduces readers to Ariosto's now-neglected masterpiece - a poem whose impact on Western literature can scarcely be exaggerated. Now, through translations of generous selections from this longest of all major European poems, Slavitt brings the poem to life in ways previous translators have nor." "At the heart of Ariosto's romance are Orlando's unrequited love for the pagan princess Angelica and his jealous rage when she elopes. The action takes place against a besieged Paris, as Charlemagne and his Christian paladins defend the city against the Saracen king. The poem, however, obeys no geography or rules but its own, as the story moves by whim from Japan to the Hebrides to the moon; it includes such imaginary creatures as the hippogriff and a sea monster called the orc. Orlando Furioso is Dante's medieval universe turned upside down and made comic. Characterized by satire, parody, and irony, the poem celebrates a new humanistic Renaissance conception of man in an utterly fantastical world. Slavitt's translation captures the energy, comedy, and great fun of Ariosto's Italian."--Jacket

Cinque canti = Five cantos by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )

34 editions published between 1565 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new translation brings to English-speaking readers an intense and brooding work by the greatest poet of the Italian Renaissance, Ludovico Ariosto. Begun as a sequel to his epic masterpiece, Orlando Furioso (1516), the unfinished Cinque Canti are a powerful poem in their own right. Tragic in tone, they depict the disintegration of the chivalric world of Charlemagne and his knights and give poetic expression to a sense of cultural, political, and religious crisis felt in Ariosto's Italy and in early sixteenth-century Europe generally. David Quint's introduction freshly examines the literary sources and models of the Cinque Canti and discusses the cultural contexts and historical occasions of the poem. Printed with facing Italian text, this volume allows the modern English reader to experience a work of Renaissance literature whose savage beauty still has the power to chill and fascinate

Il lamento di Olimpia et canzone : Venice, 1567 : three works for Isabella de' Medici by Stefano Rossetti( )

3 editions published in 2017 in Italian and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stefano Rossetti (d. ca. 1584) was a Savoyard composer associated with the Medici family in Florence. His expressive, experimental style and penchant for multipartite forms and large vocal ensembles might assure him a prominent place in the history of the Italian madrigal, but because of the incomplete survival of his music and patchy biography, his life and works remain under-explored. Among his incomplete works is Il lamento di Olimpia et canzone (Venice, 1567), which lacks the Alto partbook. The print opens and closes with multipartite cycles: a vast lament from Ariosto's epic poem Orlando furioso and a canzone in praise of Isabella de' Medici, to whom the publication is dedicated. Between them is a setting of Petrarch's "Non al suo amante" (Canzoniere, no. 52), which adumbrates the canzone thematically. Il lamento di Olimpia et canzone has often been cited in the secondary literature in connection with Isabella de' Medici, and its monumental scale has been noted by music historians. Detailed discussion of the music, however, has been hampered by the lack of a modern edition, due no doubt to its incomplete state. By providing a reconstruction of the missing voices, the present edition fills this lacuna, making these works available to scholars and performers for the first time. --
