Dante's drama of the mind : a modern reading of the Purgatorio by Francis Fergusson( Book )

26 editions published between 1953 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The individual insights employed in this reading of the Purgatorio are those of a twentieth-century mind, as are the author's references: T.S. Eliot, Henry James, I.A. Richards, Jacques Maritain, and many others. Purposely avoiding the pitfalls of Dantean scholarship, Mr. Fergusson reveals the drama of the order of Dante's vision, the developed form of the poetry, and the meaning of the canticle for modern man. "The Purgatorio," he says, "has light to shed upon history and its making; upon psychology, ethics, and education; upon politics and the transmission of our tradition. There are many reasons for learning to read it; it is a central clue." This brilliantly written book by the author of The Idea of a Theater is itself a central clue to the meaning of the Purgatorio. Originally published in 1953. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
