More > furieux est un poème épique comptant plus de 38 000 vers composé par Ludovico Ariosto, dit « l'Arioste » L'Arioste a conçu son chef-d'œuvre comme une suite du Roland amoureux de Matteo Maria Boiardo. Il prend comme trame de fond la guerre entre Charlemagne et les Sarrasins, qui sont sur le point d'envahir l'Europe. Parmi les héros, on retrouve ceux des chansons de geste du Moyen Âge, tels Renaud, Merlin, et Roland dont la fureur est causée par la fuite d'Angélique, une princesse païenne qu'il aime et cherchera à délivrer. Un autre thème est celui des aventures du Sarrasin Roger ((it) Ruggiero), ensorcelé par la magicienne Alcina, et de son amante chrétienne, la guerrière Bradamante, un couple que l'auteur présente comme les ancêtres de ses protecteurs, le duc de Ferrare et son frère le cardinal Hippolyte Ier d'Este.< Less
