  Torquato Tasso - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tasso's father was a poet by predilection and a professional courtier.
Bernardo Tasso read cantos of his Amadigi to the duchess and her ladies, or discussed the merits of Homer and Virgil, Trissino and Ariosto, with the duke's librarians and secretaries.
The truth seems to be that Tasso, after the beginning of 1575, became the victim of a mental malady, which, without amounting to actual insanity, rendered him fantastical and insupportable, a misery to himself and a cause of anxiety to his patrons.

 Torquato Tasso Summary
Torquato Tasso born on March 11, 1544, was the son of Bernardo Tasso, a member of the Bergamasque nobility and the author of Amadigi, a retelling of the Spanish poem Amadis de Gaula.
Tasso's courtly tastes and ambitions, scarcely commensurate with his family's straitened circumstances, and coupled with the humanists' exalted ideal of the worth and importance of poets, led to some rebuffs and disappointments.
Tasso was very proud of the fact that, unlike several other poets at court, his sole duty was to write verse--a circumstance perhaps occasioned not only by his excellence as a poet but also by his lack of ability in practical matters.

 Tasso - MSN Encarta
Tasso was born March 11, 1544, in Sorrento, son of the poet Bernardo Tasso.
It is the culmination of Renaissance literary tradition, in that it attempts to revive the classical heroic epic and to reconcile it with the religious requirements of the Counter Reformation.
Before publishing the work, Tasso requested the opinions of the notable critics of the day, and the unfavorable reception given the poem, combined with a blow on the head, convinced the author that he was being persecuted.

 Torquato Tasso
The atmosphere was suitable for the composition of the "Gerusalemme liberata", on which Tasso continued to work after his return to the Court of Duke Alphonso II at Ferrara.
When at length Tasso left the asylum and was received by the Gonsaga, he began about 1586 to revise his poem and after six years he transformed it into the "Gerusalemme conquistata", an inferior work.
Finally, accepting the invitation of Cardinal Aldobrandini, Tasso went to Rome, where he died in the Convent of Sant' Onofrio, under the protection of the pope, the day before he was to be crowned as poet laureate.

 Torquato Tasso   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Born in Sorrento on the eleventh of March to Bernardo Tasso, himself a poet of some esteem and a member of the very minor nobility, Torquato was able to benefit from the education that was available to those of his station.
Thus, Tasso enrolled at the University of Bologna in 1563, and after three years of study, became a courtier of Cardinal Luigi d’Este at Ferrara, under whose patronage, Tasso thrived in what could probably be called the happiest years of his life.
Tasso, sensitive to this criticism, fell into an unhealthy state of depression and melancholy and was prone to fits of irritability and instability.

Tasso came from a noble and literary family, and received all the advantages of such a station, including receiving and education with the son of the Duke of Urbino.
After the completion of his great work, Tasso suffered from mental instability (manifested as a persecution complex), and from 1579 to 1586 the Duke of Ferrara had him committed to the hospital of Santa Anna.
Tasso's reputation was international even during his lifetime: not only for his poetry, which was widely translated, but for his prose works and even for his life.

Tasso's desire to revise his works constantly and his neurotic fears of being used by his friends probably account for both the slowness in bringing the work to press and his unwillingness to consent to its printing.
Tasso's poem is not imitative, but perfective; he brings to completion and unity a number of strands that were available to him.
Tasso accounts for this, in part, by having Love affirm, in the Prologue, that he will "sweeten the sounds upon their tongues." Yet despite the artifice and the rhetorical patterns, the poetry succeeds, and succeeds well because it overcomes the seeming artifice which lies beneath it.

 Curiosities of Literature: Ariosto and Tasso
Yet the father of Tasso, before his son had rivalled the romantic Ariosto, describes in a letter the effects of the “Orlando” on the people:—“There is no man of learning, no mechanic, no lad, no girl, no old man, who are satisfied to read the ‘Orlando Furioso’ once.
Boileau, some time before his death, was asked by a critic if he had repented of his celebrated decision concerning the merits of Tasso, whom some Italians had compared with those of Virgil; this had awakened the vengeance of Boileau, who hurled his bolts at the violators of classical majesty.
The merits of Tasso are exactly discriminated; and this particular criticism must be valuable to the lovers of poetry.

 Anne Finch as a Translator
Tasso also drew her by his melody; La Fontaine, by the moral patterning and justification of fable; she stayed with them for their anatomies of solitude, dream, pastoral, and court politics, for the freedom she felt in their dismissal of ambition and honor, and of her society's anti-feminist and cynical mores, conventions, and rewards.
Her first success in translation, her third paraphrase of Tasso through the French, is a direct result of her growing ability to derive her imagery from both her emotion-laden memories of details from her early ambivalent response to court life and from the nuances of the images and tones of her source text.
Tasso's Thirsis closes with a seemingly inconsistent paean to the beauty a court can foster, with his return to the country, restored ability to write poetry, and then due to Mopsus' evil magic, present hoarseness and apparent silence (Fubini I, ii, 625-52).

Der weitere Wortwechsel führt schließlich dazu, daß Tasso den Degen zieht – verständlich zwar nach den verbalen Attacken Antonios, doch gesellschaftlich ein schwerer Fauxpas.
Tasso wird nach Anhörung der Beteiligten vom Herzog auf sein Zimmer verbannt – eine unwiderlegbar väterlich milde Entscheidung, die von Tasso aber als »Gefangenschaft« in ihrer Schwere weit überbewertet wird.
In den folgenden drei Aufzügen wird zwar noch viel geredet, doch kommt nur wenig Neues hinzu: Tasso soll den Hof von Ferrara verlassen – nicht auf immer, sondern auf Zeit.
