Cambridge Companion to Dante by Rachel Jacoff Cambridge Companion to Dante, Paperback (February 2007)

A fully updated 2007 edition of this useful and accessible coursebook on Dante's works, context and reception history.

Dante by Rachel Jacoff Dante, Paperback (July 1988)

Freccero enables us to see the "Divine Comedy" for the bold, poetic experiment that it is. Too many critics have domesticated Dante by separating his theology from his poetics. Freccero argues that to fail to see the convergence of the letter and the spirit, the pilgrim and the poet, is to fail to understand Dante's poetics of conversion.
