Jerusalem Delivered (La Gerusalemme liberata) is an epic poem by the Italian poet Torquato Tasso first published in 1581, which tells a largely mythified version of the First Crusade in which Catholic knights, led by Godfrey of Bouillon, battle Muslims in order to take Jerusalem. The poem is composed of eight line stanzas grouped into 20 cantos of varying length. The poem was immensely successful throughout Europe and over the next two centuries various sections were frequently adapted as individual storylines for madrigals, operas, plays, ballets and masquerades; scenes from the poem were also depicted in paintings and frescoes. Contents: Dedication in verse to Georgiana Duchess of Bedford; Preface to the First Edition; Preface to the Fourth Edition; facsimile of Tasso's writing; Life of Tasso; List of English Crusaders; Postscript to the Life of Tasso by John Devey (controversy of causes of Tasso's imprisonment and his love affair with Leonora); Canto Summaries; Jerusalem Delivered; L'Envoi (2 page poem).
