Orlando Furioso by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )
1,890 editions published between 1516 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 7,205 libraries worldwide
"Ariosto's Orlando Furioso (1532) is the culmination of the chivalric legends of Charlemagne and the Saracen invasion of France, a brilliantly witty parody of the medieval romances, and a fitting monument to the court society of the Italian Renaissance which gave it birth. In a kaleidoscope of scenes and emotions, three principal stories are developed: the love of Orlando for Angelica; the war between the Franks and the Saracens; and the love of Ruggiero, a Saracen, for Bradamant, a Christian. Enlivening and unifying the whole work is the vital personality of the author, endlessly teasing his readers and dropping casual asides about his contemporaries. Though highly serious in purpose and sophisticated in design, Orlando Furioso displays to the full Ariostro's remarkable sense of the absurd. This unabridged prose translation faithfully captures the narrative entire and renders meaning in its lightest shadings."--Back cover

Cinque canti = Five cantos by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )
34 editions published between 1915 and 2009 in Italian and English and held by 534 libraries worldwide
This new translation brings to English-speaking readers an intense and brooding work by the greatest poet of the Italian Renaissance, Ludovico Ariosto. Begun as a sequel to his epic masterpiece, Orlando Furioso (1516), the unfinished Cinque Canti are a powerful poem in their own right. Tragic in tone, they depict the disintegration of the chivalric world of Charlemagne and his knights and give poetic expression to a sense of cultural, political, and religious crisis felt in Ariosto's Italy and in early sixteenth-century Europe generally. David Quint's introduction freshly examines the literary sources and models of the Cinque Canti and discusses the cultural contexts and historical occasions of the poem. Printed with facing Italian text, this volume allows the modern English reader to experience a work of Renaissance literature whose savage beauty still has the power to chill and fascinate

Orlando furioso : a new verse translation by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 248 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
