The New Life of Dante Alighieri (The Siddal Edition London)

Book Description
Considered by many to be the masterpiece of Dante’s youth, New Life is one of the finest poetical works and the first example of the modern novel in Italian. Foreword by Louis de Bernières. At the age of nine, Dante met and fell in love with Beatrice. Although she died very young, she remained his lifelong muse. New Life is Dante’s profound attempt to reconcile the deep anguish he suffered after her loss and to capture something of her eternal beauty, seeing her as the universal figure of woman. Incorporating poems and prose, and distinguished by Dante’s remarkable linguistic style, New Life remains one of the greatest works in the literature of love. Author of the masterpiece The Divine Comedy, Florentine Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) is one of the greatest writers of all time. ...


Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the Game That Must Be Lost

From Kirkus Reviews
McGann (Media/Univ. of Virginia) examines the poetry and paintings of Dante Gabriel Rossetti in an effort to determine why the artist's stature, so high between 1850 and 1910, fell dramatically with the rise of Modernism.McGann cautions that [i]t is perhaps a bad idea to try elucidating Rossetti's work with the blunt instrument of critical prose, but with that dull tool McGann manages to create a precise portrait of Rossetti and his contributions to the cultural milieu of Victorian England. Praising Rossetti for his aesthetic tastes and his confidence in his artistic judgment, McGann sketches a portrait of this artist who dominated the worlds of both art and letters: Rossetti's poems and paintings are analyzed side by side in order to illustrate the interconnection of word and image. As a member of the...

Rossetti's most original work may have been in preparing the way for the modernists, who in turn dethroned him. He called the sonnet 'a moment's monument', and his best short lyrics are instants of oppressed emotion cut free of time. In this, as in the suggestiveness of his imagery, he anticipates the French Symbolists. He can also be regarded as the founder of modern verse translation, not only for the freshness of his versions but also for his choice of poets---Villon, Cavalcanti and the young Dante.
