Press: Cambridge University Press (October 31, 1986)
Author Name:Kirkpatrick, Robin


Though taking due account of the historical and philosophical dimensions of the poem, Robin Kirkpatrick focuses on Dante as a poet and story-teller. 
He addresses important questions such as Dante's attitude towards Virgil and demonstrates how an early work such as the Vita Nuova is a principal source of the literary achievement of the Comedy.
His detailed reading reveals how the great narrative poem explores the relationship that Dante believed to exist between God as creator of the universe and the human being as a creature of God.

  •     This printing of this classic work seems to be over abridged. As someone who has read other versions, this work seems to be a good starting point for getting into the heavy work. Yet, it is little better than a more indepth Cliff Note.
