Dante: the Story of His Life

Santagata, Marco


Fine in Cloth in a Fine DJ, 482 pages. “Marco Santagata’s Dante: The Story of His Life illuminates one of the world’s supreme poets from many angles―writer, philosopher, father, courtier, political partisan. Santagata brings together a vast body of Italian scholarship on Dante’s medieval world, untangles a complex web of family and political relationships for English readers, and shows how the composition of the Commedia was influenced by local and regional politics.”
