The Magic Trio is made up of Eva aka Nivalis, Tiziana aka Selkis, and yours truly (see the Trio's website). And their first big international cooperation has been - you guessed! - something about Torquato Tasso. In mid-August the US anthology Emanations: Third Eye, or Emanations III will be published, and it will include an essay called Jerusalem Updated entirely devoted to Tasso's long poem Gerusalemme Liberata (Jerusalem Delivered): brand new translations of selected passages, namely 40 octaves, plus comments(*) and 8 wonderful illustrations by Selkis & Nivalis.

(*) The text has obviously been revised by a mother-tongue editor.
