Andrea del Sarto and Lorenzaccio, Alfred de Musset's completed Renaissance historical tragedies, are two of the most remarkable representatives of their dramatic genre and period. Lorenzaccio, in particular, has had a powerful influence on twentieth-century French and European drama. These striking new translations by Musset scholar David Sices make them accessible to contemporary English readers and lovers of theater, as well as directors looking for effective dramatic texts to stage.
