"This is the summa of a lifetime's work on Dante by one of the leading Dantisti in the English-speaking world, Written in perfectly lucid, often vigorous prose, it is a nearly perfect assessment of the status quaestionis in Dante studies." "Understanding Dante should quickly become an indispensable work for Dante students and scholars. In an elegantly balanced way, it presents an impressive body of information about Dante and his works, critical debates around them, and the author's own sensitive, learned, and sensible readings. " --Joan M. Ferrante, Columbia University "Scott, a leading Dante scholar, has written a useful, comprehensive book that will appeal to a broad audience. . . . Genuinely impressive for the amount of information it provides and for its sensitive analysis of Dante's writings, this book is obviously the distillation of decades of dedicated study and teaching [of] one of the giants of world literature. . . . Essential. " --Choice "Scott's genial good sense is reflected in every detail of his text. . . . [E]very page bursts with insights and brief accounts of disputed interpretations without ever feeling forced." --Commonweal "An Australian scholar, Scott is one of the world's leading Dantisti. In this summa of his career he has written a commanding, elegant overview of Dante's works, analyzing his historical context; his political, moral, and religious ideas; the structure and texture of his writing; and the state of Dante scholarship. Scott has accomplished the nearly impossible: he has married close interpretation with broad synthesis--and in clear, often vigorous prose. This is a significant and deeply satisfying book." --The Atlantic Monthly

Reseña del editor:

Firmly grounded in the latest advances of Dante scholarship, Understanding Dante offers an original and uniquely detailed, global analysis of Dante as poet of the Comedy that will be welcomed by those who read the poem in translation as well as by those who study the original Italian text. At the same time, Scott's book will be welcome for its rich and insightful analysis of the whole corpus of Dante's writings, as well as Scott's mastery of the vast sea of critical literature in various languages. Scott bridges the gap that often exists between Dante studies in English-speaking countries and the great tradition of Dante scholarship in the poet's homeland. No work in English about the great Italian poet can rival Understanding Dante's scope in both depth and breadth of close reading and critical vision.
