Product Description

Product Description

An exquisite medley of lyrical verse and poetic prose, La Vita Nuova (The New Life) ranks among the supreme revelations in the literature of love. Its allegorical view of the soul's crisis and growth combines a narrative with meditations, dreams, songs, and prayers.
In this masterpiece of his youth, Dante assembles a selection of his love poems within a prose framework that situates them chronologically and autobiographically. The result is a history of his love for Beatrice, the muse he encountered in childhood who continued to influence him long after her marriage and early death. Upon completing this work in 1294, the future author of The Divine Comedy pledged to write of Beatrice "what has never before been written of any woman."
Instructors and students of Italian, as well as anyone interested in the masterworks of world literature, will appreciate this dual-language edition. It features a new English translation, in addition to an informative introduction and helpful notes.

I specifically wanted the book to have notes by other owner's within it, so I took a risk and bought a well used one. Definitely worth it. Really enjoyed reading alongside someone else's notes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best translation I've read 14 Oct 2012
By Travy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This isn't the best translation of La Vita Nuova I have read, but it is nice to have a dual language reference. The translation is pretty literal word for word and doesn't flow as well as the Italian version in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, accessible edition 3 Nov 2010
By Kenneth R. Kirkman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This dual language edition is put together, and is also inexpensive, which will be enticing to any novice students of Dante. The Vita Nouva is a major component of his opus poeticum.
