Ludovico Ariosto (1474-1533) was an Italian poet. Orlando Furioso is anything but a sing-songy, staid old verse. In Waldman's translation are to be found both the idealised virtues of chivalry and sometimes startlingly lowbrow humor, all wrapped up in an epic tale of adventure, romance and magic.

The chivalric epic Orlando Furioso by Ludovico Ariosto is considered to be one of the most famous works of Italian and European literature. It consists out of 46 cantos and it was written in Italian using octave and hendecasyllable. It was firstly published in 1516 and it had 40 cantos. The author worked and changed the epic poem and after the second publication in 1521, he published the last one that was expanded and perfected in 1532. There isn’t a single plot to follow up with and there is a variety of characters.

Charlemagne's nephew Orlando (AKA Roland) is driven insane by the infidelity of his beloved Angelica. Angelica's relationship with him and others loosely unifies multiple story lines to produce a rich tapestry of romance,. Angelica's relationship with him and others loosely unifies multiple story lines to produce a rich tapestry of romance, fictionalized history, and pure fantasy. This romance-epic is a sequel to the less distinguished and unfinished romance Orlando Innamorato, by Mattteo Maria Boiardo.

Charles James Fox, one of my heroes of the English 18th Cent., said that all Englishmen should learn Italian just to read Orlando Furioso. This seems a sound use of time. It is a lovely Christmas stocking (of a giant, it is absurdly long!) full of astonishing toys and trinkets that jump out and pirouette under the tree. Two knights fight a magician on a magic flying horse who soars and swings like a yo-yo so that the magician is always popping up like a horrid hornet behind the knights' necks to sting and sting. A myrtle bush recounts its sad love affairs as a man to a perfect stranger who has just flown in on a hippogryff. A beautiful girl knight knocks all the guys senseless, then falls into a hole where Merlin tells her the biographies of her unborn children and grandchildren. People dependent entirely on horses drop in on Scotland for lunch, and then go back to North Africa. I could go on, and the dear, gentle, Count Ludovico Ariosto most certainly does.
The Italian is considerably less knotty than The Divine Comedy--and the subject is much more merrily simple-minded. Obsolete words will certainly be encountered: "verrone" for "balcone" ="balcony" just for one. There are naturally words for parts of armor and saddlery you do not really need to buy an ice-cream in Milan. You need a good Italian dictionary or a very good English-Italian (Oxford-Paravia, for example). The grammar is straightforward, though he does abbreviate words, making them look a little strange.
The central story is of a crusading knight, Count Orlando, who falls in love with a girl who is (a) a pagan, (b) a sorceress. If this seems a bad idea, she also loathes men. This tense situation causes Count Orlando to go comprehensively mad--"furioso." No matter. Help is at hand! Two French knights in Morocco go to the Moon to retrieve his brain in a bottle.
The writing and the metre are as fresh as a summer breeze.
Kindle has done a decent job of the Italian typesetting. Accents are usually as they should be, and I do not find many typos. But note:--this edition has no English text. It really is Italian.

The book does have the complete poem in Italian, but it's a very bad edition, with no preface/biography, no notes whatsoever, and the stanzas aren't even divided by verse: they are all amassed there. If you need an emergency book it's okay, but as for the rest, it sucks. Also, the people who handled the package made a terrible job at shipping it: it arrived already bent and ruined.

there are some books that have to be on your shelf, either for reference or for reading whenever you think that you are ready to face the argument. I think that the classics are important if one needs to have a general and basic culture. sometimes we regret not having read one book or another, so it's best to have it on hand. I found Orlando Furioso the msterpiece of Ariosto, very interesting and a must reading for those who have to have a good knowledge of Italian culture.

They should make a Lord-of-the-Rings-type film of this epic poem. I read it several times in middle school, high school, college, and grad school. Even now, I read a few stanzas before I go to bed, and have the most beautiful dreams. Kids love it, too (especially if you show them illustrations of Orlando's adventures). Highly recommended!!
