A new life of Dante
The first new biography of Italy's foremost writer and thinker available in English for nearly fifty years, A New Life of Dante weaves into a single thread the whole of Dante's life and works. Dante is an intensely philosophical and sociopolitical writer, and these intimately connected aspects are kept constantly in view in the extensive discussion of his writings. Considerable attention is given to his masterpiece, Divina commedia, as well as to his other works.Bemrose's study makes Dante's life accessible to both nonspecialists and students. All quotations are translated.
