Medieval Treatsie of Poetry,
This review is from: La Vita Nuova (Classics) (Paperback)
This is a love song for everlasting youth. A story of pathos. A language of timeless relevance.A treatsie for all poets.A trip to thirteenth century Italy. A doorway to medieval times.
Experience the pangs of first love with literature's most devoted lover: the timeless inspiration of Rossetti, Eliot and Delacroix.
What one experiences in The Vita Nuova is the ordered process of a great poet: the meaning of each poem is deftly explained with clarity, gaining the reader an insight into that most fabled of all European ideals - true love.
Dante's quest for no more than a smile from his fair Beatrice will win the hearts of all who have ever loved dearly.
