Dante Alighieri


About the Author

Dante Alighieri, born in Florence, Italy, c. 1265, is considered one of the world’s greatest poets. His use of the Florentine dialect established it as the basis for modern Italian. His late medieval epic, The Divine Comedy, was above all inspired, as was all his poetry, by his unrequited love for Beatrice, a woman he may have seen only from afar. He died in 1321, having completed his great work, yet an exile from his native city.
