Orlando Furioso by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )

2,780 editions published between 1516 and 2018 in 16 languages and held by 16,376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ariosto's Orlando Furioso (1532) is the culmination of the chivalric legends of Charlemagne and the Saracen invasion of France, a brilliantly witty parody of the medieval romances, and a fitting monument to the court society of the Italian Renaissance which gave it birth. In a kaleidoscope of scenes and emotions, three principal stories are developed: the love of Orlando for Angelica; the war between the Franks and the Saracens; and the love of Ruggiero, a Saracen, for Bradamant, a Christian. Enlivening and unifying the whole work is the vital personality of the author, endlessly teasing his readers and dropping casual asides about his contemporaries. Though highly serious in purpose and sophisticated in design, Orlando Furioso displays to the full Ariostro's remarkable sense of the absurd. This unabridged prose translation faithfully captures the narrative entire and renders meaning in its lightest shadings."--Back cover

Cinque canti = Five cantos by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )

39 editions published between 1565 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 581 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

Orlando Furioso : the frenzy of Orlando by Lodovico Ariosto( )

5 editions published in 1831 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orlando Furioso ("The Frenzy of Orlando", more literally "Mad Orlando"; in Italian furioso is seldom capitalized) is an Italian romantic epic by Ludovico Ariosto which has exerted a wide influence on later culture. The earliest version appeared in 1516, although the poem was not published in its complete form until 1532. Orlando Furioso is a continuation of Matteo Maria Boiardo's unfinished romance Orlando Innamorato ("Orlando in Love", published posthumously in 1495). The action takes place against the background of the war between Charlemagne and his Christian p

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 248 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. --
