Gerusalemme liberata by Torquato Tasso( Book )

2,386 editions published between 1520 and 2019 in 10 languages and held by 6,688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An epic poem by the Italian poet Torquato Tasso which tells a largely fictionalized version of the First Crusade in which Christian knights, led by Godfrey of Bouillon, battle Muslims in order to raise the siege of Jerusalem. The poem is composed of eight line stanzas grouped into 20 cantos of varying length
Jerusalem delivered by Torquato Tasso( )

127 editions published between 1787 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 4,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great sixteenth-century poet vividly imagines the end of the First Crusade, led by Godfrey of Bouillon, and the taking of Jerusalem. This decidedly fictional 1581 account, influenced by Homer and Virgil as well as Ariosto's Orlando Furioso, is heavily seasoned with romance, intrigue, and sorcery. Tasso's poem inspired painters, playwrights, and librettists for centuries. Verse translation by Edward Fairfax
Aminta by Torquato Tasso( Book )

383 editions published between 1580 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 2,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Messa in scena per la prima volta nel 1573 per la corte ferrarese degli Estensi, la "favola boscareccia" di Torquato Tasso racconta la storia d'amore tra il pastore Aminta e la ninfa Silvia, tra fughe ed equivoci che prendono forma in un mondo pastorale mitico ma cosparso di riferimenti a signori e letterati del Cinquecento italiano. Protagonista di un immediato successo in Italia e in Europa, l'opera viene qui presentata in una nuova edizione commentata a cura di Marco Corradini, che nell'analisi introduttiva svela le tensioni nascoste sotto la superficie armoniosa del verso ed esamina la profonda influenza dell'"Aminta" sulla poesia e il teatro rinascimentali. Al punto che la favola fu "elevata subito a modello" e impresse così "un corso inedito allo svolgimento del genere drammatico pastorale"

The liberation of Jerusalem (Gerusalemme liberata) by Torquato Tasso( )

17 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Liberation of Jerusalem (Gerusalemme liberata, 1581), Torquato Tasso set out to write an epic to rival the Iliad and the Aeneid. Unlike his predecessors, he took his subject not from myth but from history: the Christian capture of Jerusalem during the First Crusade. The siege of the city is played out a longside a magical romance of love and sacrifice, in which the Christian knight Rinaldo succumbs to the charms of the pagan sorceress Armida, and the warrior maiden Clorinda inspires a fatal passion in the Christian Tancred." "Tasso's masterpiece left its mark on writers from Spenser and Milton to Goethe and Byron, and inspired countless painters and composers. This is the first English translation in modern times that faithfully reflects both the sense and the verse form of the original. Max Wickert's fine rendering is introduced by Mark Davie, who places Tasso's poem in the context of his life and times and points to the qualities that have ensured its lasting impact on Western culture."--Jacket

The manuscripts scores contained in this collection further extend knowledge about Meyerbeer's non-operatic compositions-instrumental, choral and occasional. These totally unknown works by a great operatic master range from a substantial cantata in the style of a dramatic monologue (for tenor solo with chorus and brass orchestra), through a brassy celebratory processional march, to a brief unaccompanied chorus of welcome. All the pieces are linked by their association with the various Germa

King Torrismondo by Torquato Tasso( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This translation of Torquato Tasso's Il re Torrismondo, the first to be made directly from the Italian into English, is intended to help those students and scholars who do not command the language of the original text. This translation provides readers with a wider range of the Italian tragedy as a genre; it also allows readers to acquire a deeper awareness of the entire spectrum of the Italian Renaissance in its final brilliance. Tasso's King Torrismondo provides an example of Neo-Aristotelian dramatic theory of the second half of the fifteenth century. It incorporates into the dramatic genre elements of the epic lyric poem. Tasso's language can also be studied as an example of "imitation" of Virgil, Dante, Petrarch, and Tasso's own epic. Finally, Tasso's Torrismondo affords us an opportunity of comparative analysis of French, English, and Spanish literature in the development of tragedy as a European genre
