Dante in Love, Hardback Book

Dante in Love Hardback

Hardback

Description

In Dante in Love, A. N. Wilson presents a glittering study of an artist and his world, arguing that without an understanding of medieval Florence, it is impossible to comprehend the meaning of Dante's great poem.

He explains how the Italian States were at that time locked into violent feuds, mirrored in the ferocious competition between the Holy Roman Empire and the papacy.

He explores Dante's preoccupations with classical mythology, numerology and the great Christian philosophers which inform every line of the Comedy.

Dante in Love also lays bare the enigma of the man who never wrote about the mother of his children, yet immortalized the mysterious Beatrice, whom he barely knew.
