Histoire de Gil Blas de Santillane by Alain René Le Sage ( Book )
2 editions published in 1809 in French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ce gros récit écrit entre 1715 et 1735 demeure un modèle du roman picaresque (technique espagnole où le personnage doit traverser divers milieux sociaux) français et fut très fertile en descendants qui lui empruntèrent la manière et la structure. Donc, cascades d'épisodes, rebondissements et retournements, rythme rapide que le ##western## devait reprendre à son compte tant en littérature qu'au cinéma. En somme, un classique alerte et bien portant dans une édition conforme avec chronologie, introduction, glossaire et notes

1 edition published in 1787 in English and held by 14 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
