I,i New from Bon Iver Fourth studio album by the American indie folk group; their first since 's critically-acclaimed '22, A Million'. The canon is virtually complete. Moleta, Vincent. Moleta points out that each time Dante confronts an apparently impassable city wall in Hell Inf. III; Inf. Papka, Claudia Rattazzi. Doctoral dissertation, Columbia University, Parker, Deborah. The composition of extensive commentaries to elucidate a vernacular author was unprecedented, and these commentaries employed the critical apparatus normally reserved for scriptural and classical authors.
It is essential to take into account the social and political context in which this commentary was produced, as these prove to have a formative effect on how Dante was read. Similarly, the history of the reception of the commentary tradition depends upon historical factors; the nationalism of the late nineteenth century led to renewed interest in the tradition that resulted in many new editions of the early commentaries.
More recently, interest in the commentary tradition has revived once again, as scholars have turned to the early commentators for a variety of reasons. Pertile, Lino. The journey of the pilgrim through Paradise contradicts the common assumption that the third canticle is that of visio Dei ; it is, instead, one of desire for that vision. Picone, Michelangelo. In his other minor works, Dante finds a continuity between the classical and Christian vernacular poets; in the Commedia , however, Dante posits a rupture between the classical and Christian worlds.
Dante ultimately treats the classical authors as forerunners in the sense that they anticipate what the true Christian auctor Dante himself will make manifest in his poem. Pike, David L. Although structured around a repeated motif, [the book] is not a motif study; even less would it claim to be a history of the genre of the descensus. Rather, it explores the means by which motifs are constantly revised and transformed, and influences constantly rewritten and configured, how history is made into myth and myth into history. Classical and medieval literature are interpreted through the lens of their construction in and by modernism, and modernism is viewed anew in light of a medieval model freed of that construction.
The book follows a series of paths back and forth between modern and medieval in order to trace the reciprocal effects of each descent on its past and on its future.
The Conversion of Dante The Gender of Descent Psaki, Regina F. Riviello, Tonia Caterina. Riviello notes that Dante repeatedly asserts that poetry must tend towards a universal meaning and not merely express personal experiences. Robey, David. Presents the results of a computerized analysis of the vocabulary, rhymes, and accentual structure of the Fiore and of a sample of the Inferno , as well as of some other texts for comparison.
Though the Inferno has fewer non-canonical accentual structures, it has a greater variety of canonical types. The essay includes nineteen tables, and an appendix which analyzes the types and frequencies of rhymes in the entire Comedy. Romano, Maria Anne. Rossini, Antonio. Russell, Jeffrey Burton. Is heaven a place or a state? Who is in and who is not? What happens to the body and soul between death and Judgment Day? Russell stresses that the best way to approach the logic-defying concept of a place occupying either space nor time is through poetry and paradox, and through the visions of such mystics as Bernard, Julian of Norwich, and Eckhart.
After the Revelation of Saint John the Divine, the most sublime and encompassing portrait of heaven to date has come not from a theologian but from a poet—Dante Alighieri in his Divine Comedy. The unsurpassed images of light, movement, and community that Dante uses so skillfully to convey the presence of God are rooted in the Jewish picture of heaven as a garden or court and in the Greek picture of the Elysian Fields.

XXXII, The redemption metaphorically represented by the new blossoms, however, will neither signify a return to complete perfection, nor remain permanent.
Rather, in accordance with millenarian thought, and symbolically signified by the image of the harlot and the giant at the end of the canto, the reign of the new near-perfect Roman emperor would ultimately give way to a period of evil under the Antichrist. Shepherd, Gregory Donald. Slote, Samuel Boaz. Soufas, C.
Christopher, Jr. Stara, Flavia. A close reading of the cantos of the Moon Par. III-V , with emphasis on the significance of vows and free will in relation to faith. Discussing the vow as a concordance of human and divine will, Stara argues that Dante goes beyond his theological authorities in dramatizing the inextricability of the vow and human will, votum and voluntas. To explain the ethical dimension of vows, the author draws parallels between vows and laws, each of which entails a pact with strict obligations.

I, Steadman, John M. Since the fruition of the Beatific Vision could only be suggested indirectly, a direct or anthropomorphic description of the Godhead would have been absurd. Stefanini, Ruggero. He notes that Lanza bases this work primarily on the Florentine manuscript, Trivulziano , and retains many of the problematic linguistic variants from that codex e. At the same time, he points out that the editor corrects his source some twenty-three times; Stefanini enumerates them and discusses the merits of each instance.

My aim is to bring to the surface the complex texture of signification suggested by the poetic allegories and to clarify the meaning that the poem establishes with both classical and Biblical traditions. The method I have followed tries to adhere to the one Dante uses to explain the canzoni in the Convivio providing first the literal explanation of the text and then the allegorical meaning.
Following this procedure, which questions the reasons for certain choices rather than assumes the answers, a reading of the poem emerges that differs qualitatively from the accepted reading. A careful reading of the text does not support either a belief in the Christianity of the poem or of the poet.

Traces Dante's promotion to cultural prominence in America by surveying the American publication history of Dante's works from the s to the s. Volumes discussed include the Works of the British [sic] Poets series Philadelphia, , the Appleton edition of Cary's translation , the Harper edition of J. Vettori, Alessandro. Starting from the precept that many liturgical rituals are found in Purgatory, the author examines Purgatorio X with an eye towards this motif.
Vettori notes that this canto is framed by two important prayers thereby establishing a tone of ecclesiastical rites. XI, However, Vettori focuses his attention primarily on the relief sculptures which exemplify the virtue of humility. In 2 Samuel, Micol adopts a human perspective when she is ashamed that the king acted in a manner not befitting his stature; in contrast, David defends himself by taking a transcendent point-of-view, claiming that his joy made him more regal in the eyes of God.
According to the author, Dante deliberately recollects this contrast in outlook by describing the synesthetic discord between his two senses, the eyes which claim to hear music while the ears do not Purg. X, Furthermore, by examining the language which Dante employs to portray this scene, the author highlights the essential components of a liturgy therein: the chorus, incense and the sacerdote Purg.
In these ways, the author underscores how this canto similarly participates in the ritualistic nature of Purgatorio as a whole. Wallace, David. Stanford, California: Stanford University Press, Figurae : Reading Medieval Culture. Warner, Lawrence.
Doctoral dissertation, The University of Pennsylvania, Williamson, Alan. Wlassics, Tibor. Preempting any objections that this interpretation may be anachronistic, the scholar notes that medieval artes dictaminis list oneiric reporting as one form of writing. Furthermore, the treatises on literary style enumerate some of the traits of dream vision: indeterminate locus and confusing time sequence. Wlassics uses these characteristics to examine and explicate some of the difficult elements of Canto I.
For instance, the dark wood and the tall hill both exemplify the non-specific locations associated with dreams. From this perspective, the author returns to the question raised by the eleventh verse where Dante mentions that he became lost in the wood because he was full of sleep. Alighieri, Dante.
