"Beginning with the Vita nuova and proceeding chronologically through Dante's writings, Hollander delineates the major strands of the poet's thought. He presents the works themselves, discusses their critical reception through the centuries, and addresses issues raised by each text. Hollander, writing for those who have already encountered the Commedia, suggests to these readers how Dante's other works relate to the great poem and invites them to reread the Commedia with new interest and understanding."--Jacket

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

11 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 398 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

Boccaccio's Dante and the shaping force of satire by Robert Hollander( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hollander reveals that Boccaccio's writings are heavy with reminiscences of the Dante text that he believed to be the greatest "modern" work. It was Boccaccio's belief that Dante was the only writer who had achieved a status similar to that reserved for the greatest writers of antiquity. Most of these essays try to show how carefully Boccaccio reflects the texts of Dante in the Decameron. Some essays also turn to the question of Boccaccio's allied reading of Ovid, especially the amatory work, as part of his strategy to base his work primarily on these two great authorities as he develops his own vernacular and satiric vision of human foolishness. Boccaccio's Dante and the Shaping Force of Satire will be of tremendous value to scholars of medieval studies in general

The second volume, covering the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and Enlightenment, opens with a troubadour's lyric to a faraway love and ends with Voltaire's satire on complacent optimism. The third volume, devoted to the Modern World, traces the contemporary spirit from Rousseau to two current masters of the Americas
