LUDOVICO ARIOSTO.

IT WAS BORN IN REGGIO EMILIA IN 1474 AND LATER IT MOVED TO FERRARA. DECIDES TO
FOLLOW HIS PASSIONS DEDICATING TO STUDY AND LITERATURE. IN 1500 THE FATHER
DIED, LEAVING HIM THE TASK OF GROWING THE BROTHERS. TO EARN MONEY, HE TAKES
MINOR ORDERS IN THE COURT OF EXTENSES. THE FIRST EDITION OF THE ORLANDO
FURIOSO COMES OUT IN 1516. IN 1522 THE DUKE ALFONSO I APPOINTED HIM
COMMISSIONER IN GARFAGNANA. AS HE WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THE LIFE HE LIVED, HE
WROTE LETTERS TO RELATIVES AND FRIENDS WHERE HE COMPLAINED. IN 1525 HE
RETURNS TO FERRARA, WHERE THE POEM EXPANDS AND IT IS RELEASED IN FINAL EDITION
IN 1532.
WRITES MANY COMEDIES INCLUDING: I SUPPOSITI, LA CASSARIA, LA LENA AND IL
NEGROMANTE. HIS WORKS IN VERSES ARE INSTEAD: THE RHYMES AND THE SEVEN
SATIRE.
THE FURIOUS ORLANDO BEGINS BETWEEN 1502 AND 1504, BUT THE FIRST EDITION WAS
PUBLISHED IN 1516, WHILE THE FINAL ONE IN 1532.
IT IS DIVIDED INTO 3 MAIN STRANDS:
THE FIRST TALKS ABOUT THE WAR BETWEEN THE FRANCS AND THE SARACENS, THE
SECOND TALKS ABOUT THE UNHAPPY LOVE BETWEEN ANGELICA AND ORLANDO AND THE
THIRD TALKS ABOUT THE DIFFICULT LOVE BETWEEN RUGGERO AND BRADAMANTE, BUT
INTENDED TO FULFILL.
THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS CONTINUOUSLY INTERTWINED IN A DISORDERED WAY.
THE FURIOUS ORLAND IS WRITTEN IN OCTAVE, WHICH ARE STROPHES MADE UP OF EIGHT
ENDECASILLABLE RHYME VERSES. LUDOVICO ARIOSTO IRONICALLY COMMENTS IT WITH A
LIGHT AND JOY TONE. THE LANGUAGE OF “ORLANDO FURIOSO” IS LITERATE TUSCAN, SO
THAT IT SPREADS QUICKLY IN ALL COURTS.
