Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Toda la actividad literaria de Ariosto converge en el ""Furioso"", iniciado hacia 1505, cuando el poeta contaba solo con algunos experimentos liricos en latin y en vulgar, y redactado en su aspecto definitivo un ano antes de su muerte, en 1532. Ariosto aposto sus cartas por este solo poema: probablemente intuia que estaba escribiendo la obra mas alta y significativa del Renacimiento italiano.«Orlando furioso» se presenta como un verdadero atlas de la naturaleza humana, maximo exponente del descubrimiento del hombre llevado a cabo por el pensamiento filosofico y politico del Renacimiento. Esta edicion reproduce la traduccion de Jeronimo de Urrea, el primero y mas famoso traductor en versos castellanos del «Orlando furioso», incorporando, con nueva traduccion las estrofas suprimidas por Urrea, y desplazando las anadidas por el al final del volumen. El aparato de notas registra las variantes, senala las principales fuentes del poema, indica las influencias ariostescas en obras y autores espanoles e intenta aclarar aquellas cuestiones que contribuyan a la inteligencia del texto.
