Now in paperback! Morgante The Epic Adventuresof Orlando and His Giant Friend Morgante Luigi Pulci Translated byJoseph Tusiani Introduction and Notes by Edoardo A.L bano "Pulci's Morgante is a multilayered text... so rich inwitticisms, ribaldry, and word games that it has defied accurate rendering intoEnglish. Tusiani, an experienced and effective translator and poet, has met thechallenge with a fluid contemporary version, effectively conveying the tempo of theoriginal as well as its comic verve." -- F. A. Bassanese, Choice "Luigi Pulci, with Joseph Tusiani's translation and EdoardoA. L bano's commentary, has entered the pantheon of Italian epic poetry translatedinto English thus far infabited only by his three Italian followers: Matteo MariaBoiardo, Ludovico Ariosto, and Torquato Tasso." -- Dino S. Cervigni, ItalianQuarterly "A reference work that no scholar of the ItalianRenaissance can afford to ignore. L bano has done justice to Tusiani's text andTusiani has done justice to Pulci's masterpiece." -- Gaetano Cipolla, Annalid'Italianistica A classic picaresque epic detailing the thrillingexploits of Orlando, Morgante is a tale of war and of the calamities that befall theromantic hero, his fellow knights, and their sovereign, Charlemagne. Orlandoencounters the fierce Morgante and converts him; the giant then becomes his squireand trusted companion. This long-awaited annotated Englishtranslation will lead to a new appreciation of Luigi Pulci's singular epicmasterpiece and a reassessment of the author's influence on modern Englishliterature. Luigi Pulci (1432--1484) has been called the firstRomantic poet after Dante. Admired by Lord Byron, Pulci was a major influence on theEnglish Romantic poets.
