9780268044510: Understanding Dante (ND Devers Series Dante & Med. Ital. Lit.)

"This is the summa of a lifetime's work on Dante by one of the leading Dantisti in the English-speaking world. Written in perfectly lucid, often vigorous prose, it is a nearly perfect assessment of the status quaestionis in Dante studies." —Piero Boitani, University of Rome, "La Sapienza"
 
"Dante and Shakespeare divide the modern world between them; there is no third." Understanding Dante attempts to explain and justify T. S. Eliot's bold claim. John Scott offers readers at all levels a critical overview of Dante's writings: five chapters deal with his New Life of love and poetry (Vita Nova), the Banquet of knowledge (Convivio), his Latin treatise on language and poetics (De Vulgari Eloquentia), Italian lyrics (Rime), and his blueprint for world government (Monarchia). The next five chapters concentrate on Dante's masterpiece, the Comedy: its structure, Dante's worldview (still relevant today), and the Comedy examined as a poem. Much has been written on Dante's moral, political, and religious ideas; important as these are, however, such discussions are perforce limited. It is above all as a work of poetry that the Divine Comedy maintains its appeal and fascination to readers of all backgrounds and beliefs.
 
Firmly grounded in the latest advances of Dante scholarship, Understanding Dante offers an original and uniquely detailed, global analysis of Dante as poet of the Comedy that will be welcomed by those who read the poem in translation as well as by those who study the original Italian text. At the same time, Scott–s book will be welcome for its rich and insightful analysis of the whole corpus of Dante's writings, as well as Scott’s mastery of the vast sea of critical literature in various languages. Scott bridges the gap that often exists between Dante studies in English-speaking countries and the great tradition of Dante scholarship in the poet's homeland. No work in English about the great Italian poet can rival Understanding Dante's scope in both depth and breadth of close reading and critical vision.

From the Publisher:

A 2005 Choice Outstanding Academic Book

From the Back Cover:

"John Scott's book gives English-speaking readers the richest and clearest account in any language of Dante's entire oeuvre. . . ." --Times Literary Supplement
"An Australian scholar, Scott is one of the world's leading Dantisti. In this summa of his career he has written a commanding, elegant overview of Dante's works, analyzing his historical context; his political, moral, and religious ideas; the structure and texture of his writing; and the state of Dante scholarship. Scott has accomplished the nearly impossible: he has married close interpretation with broad synthesis--and in clear, often vigorous prose. This is a significant and deeply satisfying book." --The Atlantic Monthly
"John A. Scott, one of the most distinguished English-speaking Dantists now working, offers in his magisterial Understanding Dante a complete survey of Dante's works that handily supersedes other recent introductions to the poet. . . This volume will without any question establish itself as the indispensable vade mecum for students whether beginning or advanced." --Speculum
". . . a most useful, enjoyable, and accomplished resource in Dante studies, and should be found on the shelves not just of every Dante student, or novice seeking a scholarly introduction to the writer, but also of those with a more general interest in medieval literature." --Medium Ævum
