Inhaltsangabe: The Other Voice's edition of Barbara Torelli's pastoral drama Partenia (ca. 1586) is a ground-breaking contribution to the study of early modern Italian literature and women's writing. This is the first ever print edition of the earliest secular play by an Italian woman, acclaimed at the time of its composition - the drama theorist Angelo Ingegneri placed it on par with Tasso's Aminta and Guarini's Pastor fido - but long forgotten, to the extent that it was believed lost until the early twentieth century, when the first manuscript of it surfaced in Cremona.
"Partenia is unusual within the spectrum of Italian pastoral drama for its moral austerity and its spiritual overtones; a strange, haunting work, it well exemplifies the new directions Italian literature was taking at this time under the influence of Counter-Reformation religious fervor, and provides a fascinating counterpoint to the better-known pastorals of Isbella Andreini, Maddalena Campiglia, and Mary Wroth. Lisa Sampson and Barbara Burgess-Van Aken's superb introduction, the fruit of intensive archival research, expertly locates Partenia within the traditions of pastoral drama and late-Renaissance Italian literature as a whole."
