Reviews - What do customers think about Tragedy and Comedy from Dante to Pseudo-Dante?
Tragedy/Comedy: Dante/ Pseudo-Dante Dec 18, 2008
This book is concise, well supported, and well argued. It is not, however, a book for the layperson, since it contains much footnoting (and some main text) in untranslated Latin and Italian, and much philological and metrical terminology that only a specialist probably would know. Yet, if the reader is looking for various and influential medieval Italian definitions of tragedy and comedy, it provides a considerable amount. It also contains much discussion and comparison of these varying definitions of tragedy and comedy. Thus, if one is looking for these definitions in order to supplement teaching or provide support for writing an article, dissertation, or book, it is a good resource.
