Understanding Dante

Scott, John A.


Near Fine softcover, 466 pages. “Scott explains the fundamental ideas we need to comprehend in order to read all of Dante’s works, from the poet’s fundamental choice between writing in Latin or the vernacular, to his complex and probably varying conception of allegory. Scott’s account of these ideas serves as an excellent general introduction to the poet; but it also conveys and renders accessible many of the major scholarly debates about Dante. . . . [His] book gives English-speaking readers the richest and clearest account in any language of Dante’s entire oeuvre.” —Times Literary Supplement
