Until now, three of Gozzi's most influential dramas--The Love of Three Oranges, Turandot, and The Snake Lady--have remained inaccessible to English-speaking audiences. This important contribution in theatre studies offers translations of Gozzi's best known works that are accurate, idiomatic, and highly theatrical, promoting awareness of the achievements of the commedia dell'arte and Venice's rich and unique culture in the 18th century. An insightful biographical and critical introduction offers new insights into the work of this influential 18th-century Italian dramatist.
