Rime by Dante Alighieri
Book DescriptionThis collection of Dante Alighieri's "Canzoniere", translated for the first time in its entirety into English, charts his poetic evolution and displays the ground on which his "Vita Nova" and "Divine Comedy" developed.Inspired in his early poems by troubadour love poetry, Dante would later come to master all the genres of the time, such as the canzone, the sonnet and the ballad. At the same time deeply personal - dealing with themes of love, death and exile - and imbued with the poetic and political context of the period, "Dante's Rime", presented in dual Italian and English text and rendered by prize-winning translators Anthony Mortimer and J.G. Nichols, offers a fascinating glimpse into the imagination of arguably the greatest writer of all time.
