From the Publisher
Editors Note Dante is considered the greatest of all European poets—yet his most famous work, The Divine Comedy, remains widely unread. ||Fueled by a lifetime’s obsession with Dante Alighieri and his work, the distinguished historian A. N. Wilson tells the remarkable story of the poet’s life and passions during the extraordinary political turbulence of thirteenth-century Europe. An impoverished aristocrat born in Florence, then the wealthiest city in Europe, Dante was the most observant and articulate of writers and was as profoundly absorbed in his ambition to be a great poet as he was with the central political and social issues of his time. The emergence of independent nation-states, the establishment of a modern banking system and currency, and the rise of Arabic teachings and Greek philosophy were all momentous events that Dante lived through. Amid this shifting political terrain, Wilson sets Dante in context with his great contemporaries—Giotto, Aquinas, and Pope Boniface VIII—and explains the significance of Beatrice and the part she has played in all our Western attitudes toward love and sex.||Dante in Love is a brilliant and enlightening look at the life and loves of one of literature’s towering figures and a lively introduction to the Divine Comedy.
