Jerusalem delivered : an English prose version by Torquato Tasso( Book )

4 editions published between 1774 and 1792 in Italian and French and held by 13 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

Les Incas : ou La destruction de l'empire du Pérou by Jean-François Marmontel( Book )

3 editions published in 1777 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Una especie de novela poética cuyo fundamento es la historia y la moral su fin". Es de esta manera que La Harpe define en su curso de literatura la obra de J.F. Marmontel, "Les Incas ou la destruction de l'Empire du Pérou". La publicación de "Les Incas" en 1777, un año antes de la muerte de Voltaire y de Rousseau, fue acogida con un entusiasmo que no disminuiría durante la primera mitad del siglo XIX. El espíritu de la obra se inserta en la más pura tradición del Siglo de las Luces; aquí el "Buen Salvaje" es el rey, el "fanatismo destructor" se condena sin rodeos y el avasallamiento de los pueblos se denuncia como el "primer paso de la tiranía". "Les Incas" por la sensibilidad que manifiesta es también un libro de su siglo; "diluvios de lágrimas" y "corazones desgarrados" o "paralizados de horror" son compartidos aquí de igual manera por Españoles e Indios. Hoy, esta obra, que llegó en el buen momento del buen siglo, parece haber envejecido un poco. Sin embargo, cuidémonos de rechazarla; su estilo anticuado, que a veces nos hacesonreir es verdad, le otorga un encanto cierto y representa excelentemente la visión que el siglo XVIII francés podía tener de los Incas y de la conquista del Perú
