Canto 12 Clorinda seeks greater glory, and tells Argantes of her plan Jerusalem delivered book burn Godfrey's siege machines at midnight. On the other Jerusalem delivered book, the self-righteous contenders to sovereignty are unlikely to take the subtle lessons from such a work of literature.

He returns to the battle and wounds Argantes. XVII "I, messenger from everlasting Jove, In his great name thus his behests do tell; Oh, what sure hope of conquest ought thee move, What zeal, what love should in thy bosom dwell! The character of Clorinda is inspired in part by Virgil 's Camilla and by Bradamante in Ariosto ; the circumstances of her birth a Caucasian girl born to African parents are modeled on the lead character Jerusalem delivered book from the ancient Greek novel by Heliodorus of Emesa.

Erminia recalls how nobly Tancred treated her when he defeated her father Cassano, king of Antioch, and how Tancred granted her liberty. Godfrey wishes to have the siege machines built. Argantes therefore fights Otho, and is wounded. Because of the pressure and psychical problems he ended up in the hospital for a few years and there he also worked on his writing.

Sometimes it must be confessed, at the expense of fidelity. But Michael the archangel arrives, and informs the many devils present that God has forbidden any further direct intervention by the devils in the fighting.

XLII His mother's heritage was this and right, To which he added more by conquest got, From thence approved men of passing might He brought, that death or danger feared not: It was their wont in feasts to spend the night, And pass cold days in baths and houses hot.
