  Ludovico Ariosto - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Ludovico Ariosto (September 8, 1474 - July 6, 1533) was a Ferrarese poet, author of the epic poem Orlando furioso (1516), "Orlando Enraged".
Ariosto then boldly said, that had his eminence thought to have bought a slave by assigning him the scanty pension of 75 crowns a year, he was mistaken and might withdraw his boon--which it seems the cardinal did.
This was but an act of simple justice, Ariosto having already distinguished himself as a diplomat, chiefly on the occasion of two visits to Rome as ambassador to Pope Julius II.

 WowEssays.com - Edmund Spenser Vs. Virgil And Ariosto
Edmund Spenser vs. Virgil and Ariosto Some scholars believe Spenser did not have sufficient education to compose a work with as much complexity as The Faerie Queene, while others are still “extolling him as one of the most learned men of his time” (587).
Another scholar testified that both Ariosto and Spenser did not observe Virgil’s conception of an epic as ‘a unified account of a single hero’s career,’ but instead got lost in their concentrations on wild, unnatural allegories that greatly displeased and ultimately confused the reader (1).
Ariosto is noted for using a formula that reads “Mes a tant laisse li contes a parler de…et retorne a…”(“Now I stop telling the story of…and return to…”)(Fowler 135).

 [EMLS 2.3 (December 1996): 4.1-16] Reflections on Milton and Ariosto
Ariosto, perhaps because he is taking a man to the moon as well as defaming the sanctitude of St. John, is considered to be feigning as a writer and composing knotty poetry or a knotty plot.
What Milton did to Ariosto's voyage is similar to Harington's manipulation of Ariosto's illustration: he took it away from Ariosto, put it into his own pocket, altered it, and corrected Ariosto's irreverence toward his own Roman Catholic religion with his, Milton's own, sardonic seriousness about his version of protestantism.

 mondo marion: Alcina program essay
Now little known in the English-speaking world, Ludovico Ariosto (1474-1533) was arguably the greatest poet of his age, and his 46-canto epic Orlando furioso (Mad Roland, 1532) was the most celebrated literary work of its era.
Though Ariosto's verses sparkle with humor and grace, the breathless plunge of Angelica and her suitor into the woods inevitably recalls Dante's "dark forest" of perdition.
Ariosto borrows a phrase from Dante's Inferno V (the canto of the doomed lovers Francesca da Rimini and Paolo Malatesta)—"here, there, up and down"—to depict his characters' pell-mell quests for the objects of their desire.

Moreover the prominence of the “debate” on women in Ariosto’s poem, is proof of his sensitivity and concern for women’s representation.
Ariosto incorporated, in an epic narrative context, a taxonomy of feminine behavioral patterns, and used the recognizable classification to formulate and suggest changes to his female readers.
On the contrary, it is of great importance to confirm that the emancipation suggested by the poet was, and remains, one of the most valid tools for liberation from stereotypes embraced by oppressors or, at times, even well intentioned reformers.

 Denial of justice: the killing of Apolo Ariosto Carranza Vallar (1997)
The case of Apolo Ariosto Carranza Vallar clearly shows how members of the state are involved in obstructing, either deliberately or through negligence, investigations into human rights violations committed by members of the security forces.
Since the 1960s academics, students and teachers have been singled out for torture, "disappearance" and extrajudicial execution by members of the security forces or by "death squads" in relation to their political activities [10].
Amnesty International fears that irregularities in the investigations and interference with crucial evidence may signify that those responsible for the killing of professor Apolo Ariosto Carranza Vallar, as in other cases of human rights violations, are never brought to justice, and the circumstances surrounding his death may never be known.

The only unabridged prose translation of Ariosto's Orlando Furioso--a witty parody of the chivalric legends of Charlemagne and the Saracen invasion of France--this version faithfully recaptures the entire narrative and the subtle meanings behind it.
And for sheer entertainment value (coupled with the elitism of Ariosto's sly jabs at the very people for whom the work was composed), this work is all but impossible to beat-- his original audience, after all, was not the literati, but the idle rich.
Ariosto wrote "Orlando Furioso" around 1516, some 750 years after the events it purports to describe.

Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900; 1/1/1999; Gough, Melinda J. William Shakespeare's comedy, 'Much Ado about Nothing,' is seen as a play built on the recurrent theme of a woman erroneously accused of whoredom.
The Hero-Claudio plot in the play is compared with Ariosto's Ariodante and Ginevra and to Spenser's Phedon-Claribell plot in the second book of 'The Faerie Queene.' An argument is made that the plays, through their juxtaposed themes, promote a dangerous stereotype of a Circean seductress-hag that is grotesquely female.
