More About Dante Alighieri


Dante Alighieri Durante degli Alighieri, simply referred to as Dante (1265–1321), was a major Italian poet of the Middle Ages. His Divine Comedy, originally called La Comedia and later called Divina by Boccaccio, is widely considered the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature.

In Italy he is known as il Sommo Poeta ("the Supreme Poet") or just il Poeta. He, Petrarch and Boccaccio are also known as "the three fountains" or "the three crowns". Dante is also called the "Father of the Italian language".

He entered into Florentine politics in 1295, but he and his party were forced into exile in a hostile political climate in 1301. Taking asylum in Ravenna late in life, Dante completed his Divine Commedia, considered one of the most important works of Western literature, before his death in 1321.

Dante Alighieri was born in 1265 and died in 1321.

Reviews - What do customers think about La Divina Comedia / The Divine Comedy (Spanish Edition)?

Excepcional  May 6, 2008
Esta traduccion, fuera de los meritos del texto en si, una de las obras maestras de la literatura medieval/occidental/universal, agrada por la conservacion del estilo estructural rimado del autor. El Conde de Cheste, fuera quien fuese, hizo un trabajo digno del mas elevado elogio. Da gusto tener un texto asi, en castellano, si no equivalente al original, bien similar. Y algo mas, se comenta, antes de pasar a los primeros versos, algo util para tener en cuenta, es saber, que la obra tambien se puede ver como compendio de la cultura medieval, lo cual al lector le servira para estudiar una fase historica demasiado mitificada y mal comprendida.
 
La Divina Comedia by Dante Alighieri  Jan 7, 2008
Everybody should read this masterpiece, is really interesting!! I studied it many years ago at school but now I re-read again because I am going to do a play on stage.... After 700 hundred years this book is such current...in this work Dante discuss about all humanity with its misfortunes and magnificences, passions and struggles.... He said "il mondo che mal vive" and he wanted to redeem this world with this work and I think is perfect for today!
I apologize for my english!

La Divina Comedia  Mar 29, 2007
Although there is no break in the sequence of page numbers from page 18 to page 19, this edition actually omits two cantos of Dante's poem: from the end of Canto V to the middle of Canto VII.
 
el eterno amor, el eterno viaje  Jul 8, 2000
la historia de un amor y de un viaje,,dicen que el poeta dante vio a beatriz cuando era nino y que jamas la toco o hablo con ella;no he tenido tiempo de averiguar si es verdad, pero lo que si se es que es la historia de un amor llevado a la adoracion extrema, la carne ya no interviene en el, tan solo el espiritu.

es como amar a dios, por eso es la mezcla entre el viaje iniciado por el poeta,por el infierno, el purgatorio y el cielo al final, con beatriz, beatriz en el cielo con diamantes y angeles mientras el poeta deja a virgilio, su acompanante en el purgatorio, despues de haber recorrido el infierno y despues de algunas escenas jocosas donde contemporaneos del poeta reciben su castigo en ciertas secciones del infierno.

es tambien un libro muy matematico, pero ese es otro aspecto que voy a dejar para que cada uno lo descubra. este libro es el tipo de libros que debe ser descubierto por cada generacion, porque cada generacion dara al poeta su sitial que se merece, como lo han venido haciendo desde el primer momento.

Great  Oct 13, 1999
It's a very good book, with a very interesting story. Dante had an amazing imagination and a great way to put it in words, he was a great poet. You'll enjoy it.
