Author Info
Dante Alighieri read widely as a young man and became involved in the public affairs of Florence. In struggles over the Florentine government, Dante found himself on the losing side and as a result he was exiled in 1302. He lived in various places in northern Italy for the next several years and finally settled in Ravenna. Dante lived out his years there, esteemed as a great man of letters.
Praise
"In an age that provides more and more opportunities to enjoy blockbuster thrills and to behold dazzling real-looking terrors, the fewer and fewer occasions we get to experience authentic human feelings anew are not to be wasted. Despite its shortcomings, Merwin's new PURGATORIO is one such occasion, and we should be grateful for it."
