Book Presentation invitation: Celebrating Ariosto and the Orlando furioso

Posted by boo11 at Oct 07, 2019 02:55 PM |

In 2016 the British Academy hosted a conference focusing on Ariosto and his influence on literature and arts in England. The English Association was proud to support the conference which generated the research for Ariosto, The ‘Orlando furioso’ and English Culture by sponsoring the attendance of some postgraduate delegates.

The conference drew eminent scholars specialising in literature and the visual arts from Europe and North America to discuss the many and various ways in which the narratives from Ariosto’s epic poem has excited the imaginations of artists, poets and prose writers from the sixteenth century in England to the twenty-first. 2016 was the anniversary of the first publication of the Orlando furioso in 1516.

The editors are delighted to announce the publication of:

Ariosto, The ‘Orlando furioso’ and English Culture, edited by Jane E.Everson, Andrew Hiscock and Stefano Jossa (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2019)
