Summary

One of the most frequently cited texts on the great Florentine poet's life and writings, this invaluable study is the work of an influential Dante scholar. Paget Toynbee's meticulous attention to detail and clear analysis offer a concise account of Dante's world, opening with historical background on thirteenth-century Florence, tracing the poet's private and public life, and featuring anecdotes about Dante's personality and character by Boccaccio and other contemporaries. Concluding with an exploration of the Vita Nuova, the Convivio, and the Divine Comedy, as well as Dante's Latin works, this book is accessible to readers outside of academia as well as a practical reference for scholars. New introduction by Robert Hollander. Appendices. Index. Notes. 16 illustrations.
