AUTHOR

SUMMARY

The great fourteenth-century poet has been an unequaled influence on many writers in the twentieth century, whose "confessions" may well foster a deeper appreciation of Dante. Previously published essays by some of this century's most renowned poets--Pound, Eliot, Mandelstam, Robert Fitzgerald, Borges, Merrill, Montale, Lowell, Duncan, Auden, Yeats, Charles Williams, Nemerov, Heaney--join new essays commissioned by the editors. Contemporary poets Mary Campbell, W. S. Di Piero, J. D. McClatchy, W. S. Merwin, Robert Pinsky, Rosanna Warren, Alan Williamson, & Charles Wright reflect on Dante as well as on their own complex (and often contentious) relationship to his legacy. Their engagement with his work offers a fresh perspective on the Commedia & its author that more academic writing does not provide. As the editors write, a new consideration of Dante "should generate insights not only about his work but also about poetry written in our own language & time".Hawkins, Peter is the author of 'Poets' Dante: Essays on Dante by Twentieth-Century Poets' with ISBN 9780374235369 and ISBN 0374235368.
