Book Description
In Italy Angelo Beolco, called Ruzante, is recognised as the most original of the Italian Renaissance dramatists. However, his plays are hardly known in English, mainly because few translators have been able to take on the Pavano dialect Ruzante employed for the character he played. With Nancy Dersofi's faithful translation of "L'Anconitana", presented opposite the authoritative version of the Italian text, Ruzante's most successful play is now available to English-speaking audiences.
