Orlando Furioso by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )

2 editions published in 1816 in English and held by 66 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

It was the poetic tour de force that turned Walter Scott into an international literary legend. The Lady of the Lake was his best selling poem, taking the literary world by storm, it sold over 25,000 copies in the first 8 months. Queen Victoria was a fan having 38 copies of the poem in her library at Balmoral! The poem had huge influence on the area, Ellen's Isle on Loch Katrine is named after fair Ellen in the poem, and around the world. It was even translated for the Mohican Indians in North America. The poem fell out of fashion in the 20th century although even as late as the 1950s tourist guides in the Trossachs were being paid an extra penny a time if they could recite verses of the poem. Now 200 years on Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in partnership with the Association of Scottish Literary Studies has republished the poem making it available again for the first time in decades
