Originally published in 1924, this book examines the epic poem Orlando Furioso by Ludovico Ariosto and its predecessor, the Orlando Innamorato of Matteo Maria Boiardo. Edwards grounds the poems in the romantic tradition and gives a brief biography of each author before assessing both and the ways in which they interact, as well as their impact on contemporary English literature. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Italian epic poetry.

Isabel Colegate's renowned trilogy tells the story of Orlando King, who rose to ambiguous power during the moral confusion of the 1930s, his spectacular downfall and the troubled legacy bequeathed to his divided family. As the 1950s draw to a close, his courageous daughter Agatha accomplishes the painful resolution. Echoes of Greek tragedy and myth add depth to Colegate's vivid account of three turbulent decades.
