Dante, De vulgari eloquentia by Dante Alighieri( Book )

20 editions published between 1938 and 1968 in 3 languages and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De vulgari eloquentia, written by Dante in the early years of the fourteenth century, is the only known work of medieval literary theory to have been produced by a practising poet, and the first to assert the intrinsic superiority of living, vernacular languages over Latin. Its opening consideration of language as a sign-system includes foreshadowings of twentieth-century semiotics, and later sections contain the first serious effort at literary criticism based on close analytical reading since the classical era. Steven Botterill here offers an accurate Latin text and a readable English translation of the treatise, together with notes and introductory material, thus making available a work which is relevant not only to Dante's poetry and the history of Italian literature, but to our whole understanding of late medieval poetics, linguistics, and literary practice
Dante, Monarchia by Dante Alighieri( Book )

19 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in Italian and Latin and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Monarchia, Dante's treatise on political theory, addresses the fundamental question of what form of political organization best suits human nature; it embodies a political vision of startling originality and power, and illuminates the intellectual interests and achievements of one of the world's great poets. The whole text is here presented in a new English translation, the first for forty years, based on a more up-to-date and scholarly version of the Latin original than has previously been available. The translation, together with accompanying introduction and notes, has been prepared by Dante scholar Prue Shaw. In this new accessible form, the Monarchia will interest not only Dante specialists, but also students of literary studies, political history and philosophy

Giovanni Boccaccio, the life of Dante (Tratatello in laude di Dante) by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )

8 editions published in 1969 in Italian and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Boccaccio, with his unquenchable interest in the lives of great men, was a fervent admirer of Dante, both in terms of his life and his work. As such, he embarked upon writing this short piece as a vindication of the merits of his illustrious fellow-citizen. Yet far from being simply an account of the misfortunes that befell the great Florentine exile, the resulting Life of Dante also gives precious insight into Boccaccio's own ideas on a wide variety of issues including poetry, literature, women and society."--Jacket
