Product Description


"In the field of serious academic criticism, no scholar dared until recently to put into practice the suggestive method of interpretation which Borges, in his "Fictions," has bestowed upon his literary character Pierre Menard. But Menocal . . . has now been courageous enough to give such a Menardian account literary history in her exciting new book on Dante's writing in the Western tradition."
--Bernhard Teuber," Modern Language Notes"
