Poetry in Dialogue in the Duecento and Dante

David Bowe

Oxford Modern Languages and Literature Monographs

  • Uses a unique methodology to demonstrate the fundamental role of different forms of dialogue in the first centuries of Italian literature
  • Offers rare individual treatments of Guittone d'Arezzo, Guido Guinizzelli, and Guido Cavalcanti in English
  • The cumulative argument, in which each new author is introduced through their dialogues with the preceding authors, approaches Dante through his context, rather than reading the context through the lens of Dante
