Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) The greatest Italian poet and one of the most important writers of European literature. Dante is best known for the epic poem COMMEDIA, c. 1310-14, later named LA DIVINA COMMEDIA. It has profoundly affected not only the religious imagination but all subsequent allegorical creation of imaginary worlds in literature. Dante spent much of his life traveling from one city to another. This had perhaps more to do with the restless times than his wandering character or fixation on the Odyssey. However, his Commedia can also be called a spiritual travel book. "It were a shameful thing if one should rhyme under the semblance of metaphor or rhetorical similitude, and afterwards, being questioned thereof, should be unable to rid his words of such semblance, unto their right understanding." (from Vita Nuova , c. 1293) Dante Alighieri was born into a Florentine family of noble ancestry. Little is known about Dante's childhood, but the city where he spent the first 38 years of his life was an important cultural and political center. Dante's mother, Bella degli Abati, died when he was seven years old. His father, Alighiero II, made his living by money-lending and renting of property. After the death of his wife he remarried, but died in the early 1280s, before the future poet reached manhood. Brunetto Latini, a man of letters and a politician, became a father figure for Dante, but later in his

    Biography of Dante Alighieri (1265-1321)
    Study Guides and Essays by Dante Alighieri Divine Comedy-I: Inferno Divine Comedy-II: Purgatorio Divine Comedy-III: Paradiso Dante Alighieri Dante is one of the greatest poets in the Italian language; with the comic story-teller Boccaccio and the poet Petrarch, he forms the classic trio of Italian authors. Dante Alighieri was born in the city-state Florence in 1265. He first saw the woman, or rather the child, who was to become the poetic love of his life when he was almost nine years old and she was some months younger. In fact, Beatrice married another man, Simone di' Bardi, and died when Dante was 25, so their relationship existed almost entirely in Dante's imagination, but she nonetheless plays an extremely important role in his poetry. Dante attributed all the heavenly virtues to her soul and imagined, in his masterpiece The Divine Comedy, that she was his guardian angel who alternately berated and encouraged him on his search for salvation. Dante never returned to Florence. He wandered from city to city, depending on noble patrons there. Between 1302 and 1304 some attempts were made by the exiled Whites to retrieve their position in Florence, but none of these succeeded and Dante contented himself with hoping for the appearance of a new powerful Holy Roman Emperor who would unite the country and banish strife.

A brief biography of Dante (12651321) with Internet resources
http://www.historyguide.org/intellect/dante.html
Dante Alighieri, 1265-1321
"That singular splendor of the Italian race," as his first biographer, Boccaccio, called him, was born, a lawyer's son, in Florence in May 1265. He was baptized Durante, later contracted into Dante (the name means "the much-enduring" and "the giver"). In his Vita Nuova (the New Life ), he relates how he first set eyes on "the glorious lady of his heart, Beatrice," he then being about nine years of age and she a few months younger. To Boccaccio we owe the generally accepted fact that she was the daughter of Folco Portinari, for Dante himself never gives the slightest clue as to her family name. But their chance meeting in May 1274 determined the whole future course of the poet's life. The story of his boyish passion is told with pathos in the Vita Nuova . There is no evidence that any similar feelings were aroused in the heart of Beatrice herself. She was married early to Simone de' Bardi, but neither this nor the poet's own subsequent marriage interfered with his pure and utterly Platonic devotion to her, which intensified after her death, on June 9, 1290. Shortly after, Dante married Gemma Donati, the daughter of a powerful Guelph family. That it was an unhappy marriage is open to interpretation what is certain is that after Dante's exile he never appears to have seen his wife again.

Biography of Dante Alighieri
Dante Alighieri - (1265-1321), Italian poet and philosopher
Dante's central work, the Commedia The Divine Comedy ), is considered the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature. Born into a Guelph family of decayed nobility, Dante moved in patrician society. He was a member of the Florentine cavalry that routed the Ghibellines at Campaldino in 1289. The next year, after the death (1290) of Beatrice, the woman he loved, he plunged into intense study of classical philosophy and Provençal poetry. This woman, thought to have been Beatrice Portinari, was Dante's acknowledged source of spiritual inspiration. Dante married Gemma Donati, had three children, and was active (1295-1300) as councilman, elector, and prior of Florence. In the complex politics of Florence, he found himself increasingly opposed to the temporal power of Pope Boniface VIII, and he eventually allied himself with the White Guelphs. After the victory of the Black Guelphs he was dispossessed and banished (1302). Exile made Dante a citizen of all Italy; he served various princes, but supported Holy Roman Emperor Henry VII as the potential savior of a united Italy. He died at the court of Guido da Polenta in Ravenna, where he is buried. Dante's reputation as the outstanding figure of Italian letters rests mainly on the Divine Comedy , a long vernacular poem in 100 cantos (more than 14,000 lines) composed during his exile. Dante entitled it

I think not to complete her praise to-day,
But reason so my mind unburdened be.
Love makes his presence felt in tenderest way,
If only more of valour in me lay
I would speak out and no heart go hence free;
But such proud words shall not go forth from me
Lest my sppech fall a prey to coward-fear.

Biography
Dante Alighieri (May/June 1265 September 13/14, 1321) was a Florentine poet. His greatest work, La divina commedia (The Divine Comedy) , is a culminating statement of the medieval world view and the basis of the modern Italian language. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dante_Alighieri [Nov 2004]
The Divine Comedy
The Divine Comedy (in Italian " Comedia " or " Commedia ", later christened "Divina" by Giovanni Boccaccio), written by Dante Alighieri between 1265 and his death in 1321, is widely considered the greatest epic poem of Italian literature, and one of the greatest of world literature. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Divine_Comedy [Nov 2004]
Hell
Later Western Christian scholars speculated that Hell is an underground place, presumably derived from the idea of the Sheol, and referred to as the lower part of the universe under the Earth's ground. The details as proposed in Dante's Commedia or Divine Comedy are perhaps the pinnacle of literary speculation; it is from his work that the phrase "Abandon all hope, you who enter" originated. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hell#More_on_the_history_and_description_of_Hell_in_Christianity

Story Overview
The traveler sets out on the night before Good Friday, and finds himself in the middle of a dark wood. There he encounters three beasts: a leopard (representing lust), a lion (pride) and a she-wolf (covetousness). Fortunately, his lady, Beatrice, along with the Virgin Mary herself, sends the spirit of Virgil, the classical Latin poet, to guide Dante through much of his journey. But as much as Dante admires and reveres Virgil, and though Dante considers him to have prophesied of the coming of Christ, Virgil is not a Christian. To Dante he represents human knowledge, or unholy reason, which cannot lead a person to God. This infidel may not pass into the highest realms. Thus, Dante is finally led to Heaven by Beatrice, his own personal and unattainable incarnation of the Virgin, who represents divine knowledge, or faith. First and lowest on the mountain was Antepurgatory, a place reserved for those spirits who were penitent in life, who had died without achieving full repentance or without receiving the last sacrament of the church. They were required to spend time there before they could begin their arduous climb up the mountain. A group of those poor souls who had passed away suddenly, unable to receive extreme unction, pled with the mortal visitor to speak with their relatives and friends, urging them to pray that their stay in Ante-purgatory might be shortened.

Dante Alighieri (1265-1321)

Great Italian poet from Florence who wrote the epic work Divina Commedia (The Divine Comedy) in vernacular Italian. Divina Commedia represented the cosmology and cosmogony of Dante's day. Dante also wrote De Monarchia, a treatise on political science. He believed that the purpose of government was to preserve peace and the best form was a world monarchy. He drew examples from the Roman Empire, and thought the Holy Roman Empire could unify the world. His universe was a perfect, hierarchal, intelligible cosmos.
