Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents modern scholars with a correct version of a play by Giraldi, paying close attention to the play as an example of Italian Renaissance and filling in some missing pieces in a complex mosaic. The author shows how Giraldi thoroughly and consistently tried to harmonize with precepts taken from ancient Greece and Rome (however impenetrable or ambiguous some of those precepts might be), and how he wanted to make literature and drama give firm support to the best principles of morality and gentlemanly behavior.
