About the Author:

Torquato Tasso (1544–1595) was an Italian poet known across Europe for his poem La Gerusalemme Liberata (Jerusalem Delivered, 1581). His late masterpiece Il Mondo Creato (Creation of the World, 1592, 1607) is an exposition of early-modern sensibility emerging from the turbulence of the late Counter-Reformation. Some scholars have suggested Tasso influenced John Milton, whose Paradise Lost reflects elements of Tasso’s style, themes, and genius.
