Jerusalem Delivered. An English Prose Version.

Torquato Tasso


Ralph Nash, in his method of Gerusalemme Liberata, concluded shut, fluent translation in prose of Tasso's epic would provide the main winning rendering of this significant chivalric romance. as well as conveying the imagery extra thoroughly, a prose translation avoids deforming or enhancing the textual content by way of forcing it right into a poetic layout. hence, Nash has given the overall reader and the scholar a fluent, actual English model of Tasso's nice narrative of the 1st crusade.

Nash's advent aids the reader in knowing where of the poem within the corpus of Renaissance literature. Annotations and a word list make clear the varied old, geographical, and mythological references.
