2016 marks the 500th anniversary of the publication of Ludovico Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso. This 50,000-line epic poem of love, war and chivalry is one of the most significant texts of the European Renaissance whose influence can be seen in literature, music and the visual arts, from Milton to modern interpretations. To celebrate this anniversary, the Cadbury Research Library is hosting an evening of talks with an accompanying display.
