I know his worship," said the curate; "that is where Senor Reinaldos of Montalvan figures with his friends and comrades, greater thieves than Cacus, and the Twelve Peers of France with the veracious historian Turpin; however, I am not for condemning them to more than perpetual banishment, because, at any rate, they have some share in the invention of the famous Matteo Boiardo, whence too the Christian poet Ludovico Ariosto wove his web, to whom, if I find him here, and speaking any language but his own, I shall show no respect whatever; but if he speaks his own tongue I will put him upon my head.
Fairies are common in literature from the Middle Ages on and appear in the works of many well-known writers, including the Italians Matteo Boiardo and Ludovico Ariosto, the English poet Edmund Spenser, the Frenchman Charles Perrault, the Scotsman Andrew Lang, and the Dane Hans Christian Andersen.
Pontano and other humanists later continued to write in Latin, but the Italian eclogues of Rota (1509 - 75), Boiardo, and Castiglione paved the way for a vernacular treatment of the form.
In sintonia con tale obiettivo la miscellanea si inserisce, per altro, in una linea storico-evolutiva testimoniata fin dal titolo; quest'ultimo--che vale da cartiglio esplicativo per gli otto saggi che confluiscono nel volume, mescolando l'esperienza di studiosi eminenti a vibranti contributi di piu giovani leve--risulta infatti modulato sul ricordo di due pubblicazioni analoghe, entrambe accreditate dal curatore (Massimo Scalabrini) e altresi patrocinate dalla Columbia University a vent'anni di distanza: Ariosto 1974 in America e Boiardo 1994 in America.
El segundo apartado de esta seccion trata de las epopeyas derivadas del modelo supremo de Ariosto y del Innamorato de Boiardo, la materia de armas y amores, comenzando por el poema en hexametros latinos de Francisco Nunez de Oria--Lyrae heroycae, (1581)--que salvo en los preliminares y en el material panegirico de dos cantos no tiene casi nada de historico, como tambien ocurre con la primera continuacion en castellano del Furioso, La segunda parte del Orlando con el verdadero suceso de la batalla de Roncesvalles, fin y muerte de los doce pares de Francia (1555) del Capitan Nicolas Espinosa, y el inacabado poema de Eugenio Martinez, Genealogia de la Toledana discreta (1604).
Essa e implicita a un disegno di revisione delle fonti oitaniche e si fissa come opzione ricostruttiva di una tradizione differente, restando come canone denotativo dell'epos cavalleresco italiano, sino alla sua conferma e alla sua riutilizzazione da parte degli autori del Rinascimento, in primo luogo Boiardo e Ariosto.
Its plot continues where Boiardo broke off his Orlando Innamorato; like the earlier poem, the subplots involving Charlemagne 's paladins and various pagan knights are interwoven ( intrecciatura ).
Il maggiore era l'edizione di Matteo Maria Boiardo, L'Orlando e le Rime, in due volumi per la UTET, un'edizione che ha avuto una grande fortuna fino a quando Antonia Tissoni Benvenuti ha pubblicato L'innamoramento di Orlando (MilanoNapoli, Ricciardi, 1999), che restituiva al poema la sua veste linguistica originale.
The decoration, now in fragments but recorded in engravings, was designed for a study in the Boiardo family castle in Scandino, near Modena.
215 e l'edizione veneziana dello Zoppino del 1523, cioe il volgarizzamento di Matteo Maria Boiardo.
In the fourth chapter of the second part he has supplied some defects in the former, turned commentator on himself, and pointed out the use he made of his reading by his alluding to the fact of the noted thief Brunello's stealing Sacripante's horse at the siege of Albracca, which was first of all largely related by Boiardo, and afterwards introduced with additions by his happy continuator Ariosto; and these will be inserted in their proper places among my annotations.
Lope is influenced by the Orlando stories, whether from Boiardo and Ariosto, their imitators in Spain such as Nicolas Espinosa, or the romance tradition (or most likely all of these).
