Product Overview

A major study of the Divine Comedy, this book offers an interesting perspective on Dantes representation of the afterlife. Alison Morgan departs from the conventional critical emphasis on Dantes place in relation to learned traditions by undertaking a thorough examination of the poem in the context of popular beliefs. Her principal sources are thus not the highly literary texts (such as Virgils Aeneid or Thomas Aquinass Summa Theologiae) which have become a familiar context for the poem, but rather visions of the Other World found in popular writings, painting and sculpture from the centuries leading up to its composition. The book will be of interest to non-specialists in addition to scholars of Dante, since it offers a clear preliminary account of the Other World tradition, a chronology of its principal representations and summaries of the major texts. Fully illustrated throughout, it integrates with the literary and theological aspects of Dantes heritage the important but often neglected dimension of art history. *Author: Morgan, Alison *Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Medieval Literature *Series Number: 8 *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 256 *Publication Date: 2008/10/31 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.98 x 9.01 x 0.60 inches
