"Translated here for the first time into English, Sergio Zatti's The Quest for Epic is a selection of studies on the two major poets of the Italian Renaissance, Ludovico Ariosto and Torquato Tasso, by one of the most important literary critics writing in Italy today. An original and challenging work, The Quest for Epic documents the development of Italian narrative from the chivalric romance at the end of the fifteenth century to the epic literature of the sixteenth century."--Jacket

Compromising the classics : Romance epic narrative in the Italian Renaissance by Dennis Looney( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The same can be said of Tasso and Boiardo. Indeed, one of the most important contributions of Compromising the Classics is the introduction and illumination of Boiardo's work, about which critics have said virtually nothing. In contextualizing this unwarranted neglect, Looney notes both Ariosto's stunning literary success and Tasso's theoretical positions as primary contributors to the eclipse of Boiardo

Latin poetry by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Latin and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arguably the most important Italian poet of the Renaissance and perhaps the most important European writer before Shakespeare, Ariosto's fame deservedly rests on his narrative poem, Orlando Furioso. In it Charlemagne's war against the Saracens serves as a backdrop to explore typical Renaissance themes such as love, madness, and fidelity, with an elaborate subplot that dramatizes how these themes affect the dynastic fortunes of Ariosto's patrons in the House of Este. The poem was published in over one hundred editions by 1600, so great was its popularity. The additional works that Ariosto composed have inevitably come to be viewed as minor in comparison to the magnitude and renown of his big poem. They include 214 letters, five plays, seven satires in verse, and dozens of lyric poems in Italian and Latin."--

Enrollments in Languages Other than English in United States Institutions of Higher Education, Fall 2013 by David Goldberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

SINCE 1958, the Modern Language Association (MLA) has gathered and analyzed data on undergraduate and graduate course enrollments in languages other than English in United States colleges and universities. The previous survey examined language enrollments in fall 2009; here the MLA presents its twenty-third survey in the series, describing trends in language course enrollments in fall 2013. Course enrollments in languages other than English tallied 1,562,179 in 2013. Aggregated results for enrollments in all languages show a decrease of 6.7% from the 2009 survey, thus ending a steady rise in enrollments since 1980 (with the exception of a slight dip in 1995), when numbers moved from 924,337 in 1980 to 1,673,543 in 2009. In terms of ranking, Spanish and French still lead as the two most studied languages. American Sign Language (ASL), continuing to experience remarkable growth, especially in undergraduate enrollments, is the language with the third most enrollments, displacing German, which is now fourth. Italian, Japanese, and Chinese come next, in the sequence they have occupied since 1998, followed by Arabic, Latin, and Russian. As in the 2009 survey, enrollments in courses in Korean are greater than those in Modern Hebrew, and Korean continues to hold its place after Portuguese as the fourteenth most commonly studied language in 2013. In terms of percentages, between 2009 and 2013 the geographic distribution of enrollments has remained relatively stable. Eight states (Delaware, Hawai'i, Maryland, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin) and the District of Columbia recorded increases in enrollments in 2013; six of these states and the District of Columbia had also reported gains in 2009. Of the forty-two states posting enrollment losses in 2013, thirty-one had shown gains in 2009, and eleven had also shown losses in 2009. Of the thirty-one states showing gains in 2009 and losses in 2013, twelve had increased enrollments by more than 10% in 2009. Nineteen of the forty-two states posting losses in 2013 showed losses of over 10%. The data collected in the 2013 language enrollment survey show trends that are polarized. On the one hand, there is an indisputable drop of 6.7% across total enrollments. On the other hand, in many sectors of the curriculum and in many institutions across the country, there have been remarkable gains in enrollments that counter the negative downturn. One can take away from the data in 2013 the following crucial detail: many programs, presumably those that are well run and have been provided with enough resources to survive, if not thrive, do succeed. Such programs need to be studied, for they are apparently remarkable models of effective foreign language teaching and learning, all the more so in a time of financial constraints, challenges to the profession, and general disregard for language study
