  1. Andreini, I, Mirtilla, A Pastoral. A Bilingual Edition., edited by Finucci, V, vol. 62 (February, 2018), ISBN 9780866985888 (translated by Kisacky, J.)

    Abstract:
    Isabella Andreini was the most famous actress of the Italian Renaissance, the darling of dukes and kings, as well as of less-moneyed theatergoers. As a founding member with her husband, Francesco, of the Compagnia dei Gelosi, she performed ceaselessly throughout Italy and France, and was prized for the new role she invented for women on stage, that of the ingénue with a comic bent. She was also a playwright; in fact, the first woman to publish a pastoral. This modern edition and translation subtly captures the novelty, as well as the imaginative pyrotechnics, of a brilliant, self-made virtuosa of the stage.
