Chortatsis (1575-1600) lived in the golden years of the Venetian occupation of Crete, before the Ottoman invasion. He is only now being recognized as the Cretan Dante. This new edition of his known and supposed plays reveals the originality of his works, their philosophical conception, human warmth, psychology, lyricality, and bawdiness. Bancroft-Marcus presents the plays--including Erophile , Panoria , Katzourbos and Stathis , in addition to a dozen playlets adapted from Tasso's Gerusalemme liberata and Anguillara's Metamorfosi d'Ovido --in parallel Greek and English translation. The book also includes a scholarly introduction, a full glossary, and a literary commentary.

Author Biography

Rosemary Bancroft-Marcus was originally a student of classics. She went from a BA in Latin with Greek at Exeter, via a year's study thanks to a British Council grant in Greece and Crete, to an Oxford D.Phil. in Medieval and Modern Languages. It was for her D.Phil at Oxford that she first wrote on the works of Georgios Chortatsis. She has lived across the world and has devoted herself to the study of the Veneto-Cretan Renaissance, speaking at international conferences, and writing articles and chapters for proceedings, journals, and collections of essays. She currently resides in Belgium where she continues to work on conference papers and editions of Veneto-Cretan poetic texts.
