    68 KB Ludovico Ariosto is a talentless feminist hack Anonymous 05/07/09(Thu)04:38 No.4489267  
    Orlando Furioso is a lot of overly politically correct feminist garbage written solely because this dago prick Ariosto wants to be the next Joss Whedon and write a metric shit-ton of ninja girls and girl brawlers and girl bruisers, despite the indisputable historical fact that women from the era he's writing about could not be warriors.

    Take that Queen Marfisa of India bitch. After supposedly kicking the asses of practically fucking EVERYONE in the Middle East, she converts to Islam. But, get this, in the story, becoming a Muslim doesn't mean that as a woman she has to be accompanied by a man at all times and give up her title as queen and find a man to protect her--this is TWO layers of overt political correctness, showing us this amazon warrior bitch AND trying to convince us that the backwards religion of our Muslim foes doesn't reduce all women to slavery. Trying to masculize women AND trying to humanize the Muslims all in one go. God damn, a token Muslim good guy like Sayyid on Lost is okay, but giving us this nonstop cavalcade of Righteous Heathens is a pathetic act of political correctness gone mad.

    But anyway, back to Marfisa. When she SHOULD be in a kitchen somewhere making a sandwich for a man, she instead tries to sail across the Mediterrenean to get to France because she wants to personally beat the crap out of every single knight in Europe. This is just terrible stuff here. Women are known scientifically to be less interested in violent competition than men are, this is not a valid motive for a female protagonist to have, ESPECIALLY a Muslim female.

    Her boat crashes on the Land of the Amazons (of fucking course; not finding a matriarch who beats the shit out of everyone she meets sufficient, Ariosto wants us to buy a full-fledged institutionalized MATRIARCHY where women beat the shit out of everyone and men can only wield weapons if they beat the amazons in combat, as though male superiority in military matters were a matter of culture rather than nature! ...and of COURSE the idiot implies that very very few of the men are capable of defeating their female oppressors in this martial challenge, despite the woman's naturally inferior physical strength!)

    The crew and the warriors and everyone who got shipwrecked will get killed or enslaved by the Amazons if they can't get themselves a champion who can beat some of their low-tier male warriors who earned the right to bear arms by beating a few amazons. Naturally, they all turn to Marfisa, this WOMAN, to save them. Jesus, could the agenda be any more obvious? And of course, she WINS, against men who earned their weapons fighting the AMAZONS, so it's not like they were completely unfamiliar with the concept of hitting girls. So, having won, she becomes Queen of the Amazons. This is sickening tripe obviously intended solely as wish fulfillment marketed to self-important teenage girls. Queen of the Amazons--more like Queen of the Mary Sues, am I right?

    (continues)
    >> Anonymous 05/07/09(Thu)04:40 No.4489279
    Later on, she gets to France, having apparently stuck with the idea that she should be beating up every white Christian male who dares to cross her path instead of being happy with the whole Queen of the Amazons deal. Some shit happens, she gets in some fights against large numbers of large burly dudes (and wins, of course), and meets some male knights she helps out. Those knights in turn meet a few other, larger, burlier male knights, and the larger male knights beat them up easily, causing Marfisa to rescue the helpless worthless males and save the day. Yawn. Look, I GET it that maybe once upon a time women had to endure being nothing but the damsel in distress, but reversing the situation ALL THE TIME is not only grating but breaks suspension of disbelief because not only would no woman be ABLE to beat that many strong well-trained medieval killing machines, a woman's natural complacency and lack of violent drives would mean they generally wouldn't even WANT to.

    So some of the knights she was ABOUT to beat up turn out to be going to Paris to sack the place in the name of Islam, making them the first Muslims who were jerks that I can remember encountering in the whole fucking story. LOL BROWN PEOPLE ARE NOBLE AND PURE is just stupid, I mean LOOK at the Middle East for fuck's sake. WHY should we have to humanize our enemies? WHY is it regarded by these PC artfags as being so vitally important to respect them and value their lives so much when they obviously do not reciprocate?

    Marfisa, of course, being the Mary Sue--oh, I'm sorry, I meant Muslim warrior--that she is, goes "Hells yeah I'll help you sack the place, I'm only here to pick a fight with Roland since I heard he was the best knight in the world." So she rides off to help take Paris.

    A lot of shit happens that I don't quite remember with her character after that point. It turns out the man she fell in love with was her long-lost brother, so she immediately falls out of love with him because Ariosto probably just didn't want to make people think he was going to turn her into Circe Lannister, and she's far to PERFECT to want a little incest; like all women in this story, her motives are always pure and good and honorable.

    She eventually converts to Christianity, joining the white male Christian knights of Charlemagne as a full equal and shit, because she found out her dad was a Christfag--I think this is the author's way of trying to make the story less sickeningly politically correct, while at the same time giving us the standard "THEY ARE NOT SO DIFFERENT FROM US LOOK THEY CAN BE MORE LIKE US" message that lies at the heart of all political correctness.

    All in all, do not invest your time or effort in this horrible nonstop politically correct propaganda. I would have hoped that the feminist agenda and liberal PC garbage about respecting other cultures like Islam would not have mattered so much in a work from 1516, but dammit it looks like there's nothing that the feminazis don't already control.

    And don't get me started on Bradamante.

    OP you are trying too hard.

    Rather than trolling us, why not attempt to start a nice conversation about historic realism vs 'cinematic' action, and whether or not Orlando Furioso is successful in balancing the two.

    It still sounds like shit, with a Mary Sue character. I'm not buying into your 'scientific' explanations and flaming hatred of Islam though, in India at least efforts to liberalise it have been in place since the 19th Century. But yes you're totally right that at this period in India she should have been veiled up and separated in a different part of the house. It is bullshit.

    Sounds less like the author is a talentless feminist hack and more like the author is a talentless submissive hack. Certainly sounds like shitty literature, but the description of this Queen Marfisa seems more like a Mary Sue (in the sense of an ideal mate, which just so happens to be dominant and aggressive).

    It's a Renaissance addition to the Matter of France, which was the legendarium surrounding Charlemagne and his Paladins that spread around pretty much all of Europe.
    Even the Vikings made their own version of the Matter of France in the 1200's in the form of the Karlamagnus Saga.

    I should have taken more modules in medieval and Renaissance literature, haven't covered much besides Chaucher, anonymous early authors, then skip ahead to Sidney, Spencer, Milton, Shakespeare. But most of that was last year, I've been a mostly 19th Century literature reader for my whole degree.

    Plus I think most European degrees naturally lean towards the works of their country of origin. I severely doubt that any French university covers Shakespeare.

    OP, many times in your posts you say that women aren't as violent as men.

    Well let me tell you something. When me and my brother were growing up we never laid a hand on one another past age 8. Our father never hit us either.

    Our mother however slaps us and our father every time she's angry with us. She also destroys things whenever she's angry.

    I also have a niece and a nephew. Which one constantly beats on the other? My niece. The little bitch has even kicked me in the nuts before. And my brother's wive isn't very placid either, but at least she doesn't hit me.

    Women are FAR more violent then men. The only reason that men have a reputation for being more violent is because some men beat the shit out of people to feel manly, and women are only more then happy to back up that reputation for their own selfish reasons.

    Stop backing up bullshit gender stereotypes.

    Orlando Furioso ("The Frenzy of Orlando", more literally "Mad Orlando"; in Italian furioso is seldom capitalized) is an Italian romantic epic by Ludovico Ariosto which has exerted a wide influence on later culture. The earliest version appeared in 1516, although the poem was not published in its complete form until 1532. Orlando Furioso is a continuation of Matteo Maria Boiardo's unfinished romance Orlando Innamorato ("Orlando in Love", published posthumously in 1495). The action takes place against the background of the war between Charlemagne and his Christian paladins, and the Saracen army which is attempting to invade Europe. However, Ariosto has little concern for historical or geographical accuracy, and the poem wanders at will from Japan to the Hebrides, as well as including many fantastical and magical elements, such as a trip to the moon and an array of fantastical creatures including a gigantic sea monster called the orc and the hippogriff. Many themes are interwoven in its complicated, episodic structure, but the most important plot is the paladin Orlando's unrequited love for the pagan princess Angelica, which develops into the madness of the title. After this comes the love between the female Christian warrior Bradamante and the pagan Ruggiero, who are supposed to be the ancestors of Ariosto's patrons, the d'Este family of Ferrara. [1]

    The poem is divided into forty-six cantos, each containing a variable number of eight-line stanzas in ottava rima (a rhyme scheme of abababcc). Ottava rima had been used in previous Italian romantic epics, including Luigi Pulci's Morgante and Boiardo's Orlando Innamorato. Ariosto's work is 38,736 lines long in total, making it one of the longest poems in European literature.[2]

    Wouldn't people who aren't familiar with a particular work of literature not care about what some internet prick says about it?

    For all they know, Orlando Furioso could involve obvious authorial self-insertion characters going on thirty page rants about how the sword is good, the penis is evil, and the world must be purged of the filth of the masculine.

    Jesus freaking christ let me spell it out for you.

    The OP TELLS you what the work is about, he gives you the freaking plot summary. The satire is in his reaction TO the plot. No prior familiarity with Orlando Furioso is required to enjoy his post, although it does help to enjoy it more fully (as then you are geting the humor of his "summary" as well).

    Well, it's also "Universities are making people gay by" instead of "Universities are making people by" but not everyone feels the need to point these minor slip ups out with something that obviously isn't the other person's first language.

    Women are certainly more evil than men. If they appear less violent, it's because they are too physically weak to succeed at it all that much.

    I think it would be good to include a rule that says female characters cannot be lawful good, in addition to the -4 STR.

    OP, that was wonderful. I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't even realize that your posts were satire until halfway through the thread, they were so subtle and in character! I need to read more epic poetry; there is clearly quite a bit that I have been missing out on!

    Heroic epics are a traditional gaming subject.
    Traditional gaming is for failures and failures. Girls are generally not even looking for a retarded husband with rich parents if they do traditional gaming.
