Procne is often compared to Medea, and the tragic turn here is no less fierce. When Procne learns her husband, Tereus, has dishonored her sister, she turns to their son, Itys, for her gruesome revenge. Gregorio Correr (1409-1464) penned the drama following Renaissance interest in Classical-era writing. David R. Slavitt's new verse translation, with a brief Foreword, sheds fresh light on this surprising and overlooked work.
