The Enemy in Italian Renaissance Epic : Images of Hostility from Dante to Tasso, Hardback Book

The Enemy in Italian Renaissance Epic : Images of Hostility from Dante to Tasso Hardback

Part of the Early Modern Exchange series

Description

In The Enemy in Italian Renaissance Epic, Andrea Moudarres examines influential works from the literary canon of the Italian Renaissance, arguing that hostility consistently arises from within political or religious entities.

In Dante's Divina Commedia, Luigi Pulci's Morgante, Ludovico Ariosto's Orlando Furioso, and Torquato Tasso's Gerusalemme Liberata, enmity is portrayed as internal, taking the form of tyranny, betrayal, and civil discord.

Moudarres reads these works in the context of historical and political patterns, demonstrating that there was little distinction between public and private spheres in Renaissance Italy and, thus, little differentiation between personal and political enemies.
