9781847491923: Vita Nuova (Oneworld Classics)

Universally recognized as Dante's early masterpiece, and including some of his best poetry outside the Divine Comedy, to which it can be regarded as a sort of prequelPart poetical tribute, part autobiography, it traces Dante's passionate love for Beatrice from his first meeting with her as a boy to her premature death at the age of 24 and the psychological and emotional turmoil that this caused him. Not only a lasting monument to the powers of imagination, it also represents the triumph of poetry, love, and faith over death, and can now be fully appreciated by English readers in Anthony Mortimer's stunning verse translation.

About the Author:

Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) is considered to be the father of Italian poetry and one of the greatest influences in world literature. His masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, is the zenith of medieval knowledge and a paragon of poetic imagination. Its first part, Inferno, remains one of the most popular books of all time. Anthony Mortimer is acclaimed for his translations of Petrarch and Michelangelo.

Review:

"Anyone, male or female, who has ever been infatuated, besotted, enchanted, or otherwise enamoured, will read [Vita Nuova] with many smiles of recognition—even those for whom, like me, there is no longer any ideal woman."  —Louis de Bernières, author, Corelli's Mandolin
