Description
In his last book, the American critic and Pulitzer Prize–winning biographer of Edith Wharton traces the complex emotional, artistic, and philosophical development of Dante Alighieri (c. 1265–1321), observing his wanderings through Tuscan hills and churches, his days as a young soldier with the White Guelphs, his civic leadership, and the years of embittered exile from Florence. Richard Lewis portrays the boy who first encounters the mythic Beatrice, the lyric poet obsessed with love and death, the grand master of dramatic narrative and allegory, and his monumental search for truth in The Divine Comedy. It is in this masterpiece of self-discovery and redemption that Lewis finds Dante's own autobiography, and the sum of all his shifting passions and epiphanies.
