David R. Slavitt translates the missing cantos & stanzas of Ariosto's Orlando Furioso -- wild, rich stories of love and valor that have influenced writers since the early Renaissance, from Spenser and Shakespeare to Borges and Calvino.

Compiled as a companion to the Harvard University Press edition of -- also translated by Slavitt -- Lacunae picks up where the other leaves off, revealing the many adventures and quests the other left out.

Enchanted knights, transgendered princesses, and Ariosto's essential and timeless wit . . .

Lacunae is the completion of a translation of a major work of Renaissance literature, in a lively and thoroughly engaging performance.

Praise for David R. Slavitt:

"[Slavitt's] translation is witty, playful, outrageous, yet serious and sombre too. Crucially it is effortlessly readable."
Doireann Lalor, Times Literary Supplement

"Slavitt's easy-going, colloquial approach possesses a lightness and brio, a sweet playfulness (touched with irony) that carries the reader effortlessly, happily along. . ."
Michael Dirda, Washington Post
