The first original chivalric poem written by an Italian woman, Floridoro imbues a strong feminist ethos into a hypermasculine genre. Dotted with the usual characteristics—dark forests, illusory palaces, enchanted islands, seductive sorceresses—Floridoro is the story of the two greatest knights of a bygone age: the handsome Floridoro, who risks everything for love, and the beautiful Risamante, who helps women in distress while on a quest for her inheritance. Throughout, Moderata Fonte (1555–92) vehemently defends women’s capacity to rival male prowess in traditionally male-dominated spheres. And her open criticism of women’s lack of education is echoed in the plights of various female characters who must depend on unreliable men. First published in 1581, Floridoro remains a vivacious and inventive narrative by a singular poet.

The statues of Priapus, the ancient Roman god of fertility, were adorned not only with a huge phallus, but also short & jocose Latin epigrams. For centuries these bawdy verses, attributed to some of the most classical Roman poets such as Martial, Petronius, Catullus, Ovid, Tibullus & Cinna, lay untranslated. This book reprints the prose & verse translations of those masters of classic erotica, Leonard Smithers & Sir Richard Burton. The ripe Roman sense of humor that they reveal show that mankind's taste for the ribald has remained unchanged over the centuries. A volume in the Wordsworth Classic Erotica series.
