Dante : a life in works by Robert Hollander( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Divine Comedy, completed around 1320, is a supreme work of the imagination. None of Dante's other works, not even all his other works taken together, can rival the Commedia. How did the Florentine exile come to create this masterpiece? What steps in his development can possibly explain the making of this extraordinary poem? Here a preeminent Dante scholar turns to the poet's body of work - the only real biography of Dante that we have - to illuminate these questions. Through an exposition of Dante's other writings, Robert Hollander provides a concise intellectual biography of the writer whom many consider the greatest narrative poet of the modern era."

Dante's Epistle to Cangrande by Robert Hollander( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Dante's Epistle to Cangrande Robert Hollander commandingly marshals new evidence to demonstrate that the epistle should be considered authentically Dantean. He further provides enlightening discussion of the nature of tragedy and comedy in the Divine Comedy. The author draws authoritatively on the extensive array of medieval and modern commentaries stored in electronic form by the Dartmouth Dante Project, of which he is the director. Dante's Epistle to Cangrande makes a signal contribution to Dante studies. Naturally of interest to students of Dante's work, it will also be important reading for those concerned with literary critical questions such as authorial intent, programmatic statements, and allegorical interpretations of literature
