Dante Worlds. Echoes, Places, Questions
Peter Carravetta (ed)
This collection of studies and essays, originally delivered at a conference held at Stony Brook University, NY, in December, 2015, but greatly recast and expanded, examines aspects of the large footprint Dante has left in Western societies. In particular, they explore the dynamic of worlding that the Florentine effects on a host of authors and contexts, from radical culture-changing proposals within his own socio-cultural mileau, to his regenerative power in entire cultures, such as the Spanish, Latin American, and Albanian, to his shaping trans-national processes, such as with travel, diaspora and immigrant writers.
