Subject: 16.1617 Italian Translations of Shakespeare
Comment: 	Re: SHK 16.1617 Italian Translations of Shakespeare

Dear Michael, the background colouring is only on the "title page" (a 
colour-coded table with only the first translations into every 
language), for Pasternak you would have to go to the pages for the 
individual languages, in the case of Russian translations to
http://pages.unibas.ch/shine/translatorsrussian.htm.

Unfortunately, the links to Russian websites disappear and reappear 
frequently, but you can re-access dead links via the web archive 
[http://www.archive.org/]
Does anybody know more about translations into Yiddish?

Dear Jane, in case you have not found to the Italian page 
(http://pages.unibas.ch/shine/translatorsitalian.htm), here is a short 
survey from Zeno to Verdi:

1705 Apostolo Zeno, /Amleto/ (no direct relation to Shakespeare's play)
1726 Antonio Conti, /Il Cesare /(no direct relation to Shakespeare's play)
1756 /Il Giulio Cesare, Tragedia Istorica di Guglielmo Shakespeare/,/ 
translated into the Tuscan tongue by Dr. Domenico Valentini/ (Siena, 
1756) The first Italian translation
1763-64 Garrick in Italy
1769-1816 Alessandro Verri, /Hamlet/ and /Othello/
1814 - 15 Michele Leoni: tragedies (in verse)
*1831 Carlo Rusconi: complete works (in prose) *(first complete translation)
1847 Francesco Maria Piave, /Macbeth/ (for Verdi)
1857-59 Giulio Carcani: selected plays
1865 Arrigo Boito: /Amleto/ (libretto for Franco Faccio)
*1874-82 Giulio Carcani: complete edition*
1887 Arrigo Boito: /Otello/ (libretto for Verdi)
1893 Arrigo Boito: /Falstaff/ (libretto for Verdi)

I'd be grateful for additions,

Markus
