About the Author: Dante Alighieri

Dante Alighieri, or simply Dante May 14 June 13 1265 September 13 14, 1321 , is one of the greatest poets in the Italian language with the comic story teller Boccaccio and the poet Petrarch, he forms the classic trio of Italian authors Dante Alighieri was born in the city state Florence in 1265 He first saw the woman, or rather the child, who was to become the poetic love of his life when he Dante Alighieri, or simply Dante May 14 June 13 1265 September 13 14, 1321 , is one of the greatest poets in the Italian language with the comic story teller Boccaccio and the poet Petrarch, he forms the classic trio of Italian authors Dante Alighieri was born in the city state Florence in 1265 He first saw the woman, or rather the child, who was to become the poetic love of his life when he was almost nine years old and she was some months younger In fact, Beatrice married another man, Simone di Bardi, and died when Dante was 25, so their relationship existed almost entirely in Dante s imagination, but she nonetheless plays an extremely important role in his poetry Dante attributed all the heavenly virtues to her soul and imagined, in his masterpiece The Divine Comedy, that she was his guardian angel who alternately berated and encouraged him on his search for salvation.Politics as well as love deeply influenced Dante s literary and emotional life Renaissance Florence was a thriving, but not a peaceful city different opposing factions continually struggled for dominance there The Guelfs and the Ghibellines were the two major factions, and in fact that division was important in all of Italy and other countries as well The Pope and the Holy Roman Emperor were political rivals for much of this time period, and in general the Guelfs were in favor of the Pope, while the Ghibellines supported Imperial power By 1289 in the battle of Campaldino the Ghibellines largely disappeared from Florence Peace, however, did not insue Instead, the Guelf party divided between the Whites and the Blacks Dante was a White Guelf The Whites wereopposed to Papal power than the Blacks, and tended to favor the emperor, so in fact the preoccupations of the White Guelfs were much like those of the defeated Ghibellines In this divisive atmosphere Dante rose to a position of leadership in 1302, while he was in Rome on a diplomatic mission to the Pope, the Blacks in Florence seized power with the help of the French and pro Pope Charles of Valois The Blacks exiled Dante, confiscating his goods and condemning him to be burned if he should return to Florence.Dante never returned to Florence He wandered from city to city, depending on noble patrons there Between 1302 and 1304 some attempts were made by the exiled Whites to retrieve their position in Florence, but none of these succeeded and Dante contented himself with hoping for the appearance of a new powerful Holy Roman Emperor who would unite the country and banish strife Henry VII was elected Emperor in 1308, and indeed laid seige to Florence in 1312, but was defeated, and he died a year later, destroying Dante s hopes Dante passed from court to court, writing passionate political and moral epistles and finishing his Divine Comedy, which contains the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso He finally died in Ravenna in 1321

    This is a great book, but does require the notes to make any sense of it Hundreds of characters from Dant s Italy not to mention host of mythological and Biblical ones tended to distract me just reading the poetry and appreciating Dante s wonderful descriptions I have to stop at the end of each chapter and read the notes to understand the context and people that Dante is referring to I agree that it would be impossible to ever write this book without references to contemporary politics and s This is a great book, but does require the notes to make any sense of it Hundreds of characters from Dant s Italy not to mention host of mythological and Biblical ones tended to distract me just reading the poetry and appreciating Dante s wonderful descriptions I have to stop at the end of each chapter and read the notes to understand the context and people that Dante is referring to I agree that it would be impossible to ever write this book without references to contemporary politics and so it probably felt dated in that manner even as Boccacio was writing Dante s biography and promoting this up to then banned masterpiece 50 years after Dante finished it Perhaps a lot of postmodern literature will suffer from the same feeling of obsolescence Am I a hypocrite because I also adore Pynchon, DFW, Proust and Joyce who also require dense footnotes to completely understand Perhaps but my point wasthat I have to read this in a stop and start manner and it takes a lit...
