Pubblicata negli Stati Uniti una nuova biografia di Dante.
The layman’s guide to Dante – Biography – Salon.com
A. N. Wilson’s new book on Dante is inspired partly by love — he’s read Dante over the past 50 years or so — and partly by the notion that people are scared away from reading Dante at all. As a novelist, popular historian, ex-theology student, former atheist, current believer and amateur Dantean, Wilson offers himself as our Virgil as we journey, again — or for the first time — into the poet’s imagination. Despite the many books on Dante he’s looked at over the years (and his bibliography is deep as well as long), Wilson feels he’s never found a satisfactory introduction written for the ordinary non-Italian-speaking reader, “the intelligent general reader of the twenty-first century — that is to say, you.”
