Summary
"Hopeless Love explores a number of texts that are significant to an understanding of sexuality in medieval and Renaissance Europe. Focusing on two major Italian works, Mary-Michele DeCoste uses feminist and queer theory to read the story of the maiden warrior Bradamante and the princess Piordispina, as related in the last tale of Boiardo's apparently unfinished Orlando innamorato (1494) and an episode that appears at the centre of Ariosto's Orlando furioso (1532)."--Jacket
