    It doesn t much matter what the reality is when you are holding a dialogue in your mind with another part of your mind that has its roots in something that was in fact once real and refuses to depart In the final analysis one experiences only oneself, and our life is no dream but it ought to become one and perhaps will A part of us functions in the phantasmagoria which we call the everyday world, but another part holds on to memories and ideals which it instinctively knows are infinitelyIt doesn t much matter what the reality is when you are holding a dialogue in your mind with another part of your mind that has its roots in something that was in fact once real and refuses to depart In the final analysis one experiences only oneself, and our life is no dream but it ought to become one and perhaps will A part of us function...

    La Vita Nuova an unusual book written in alternating prose and poetry, it is part ode, part autobiography, part literary analysis, part metaphysical exploration It is historically important as it provides much of the background to Dante s life, especially his relationship with his distant love and muse, Beatrice.My attempt to brush up on my Italian with this dual language edition of the book was a bit of a failure While the language has remained incredibly static over the past 700 years, Dant La Vita Nuova an unusual book written in alternating prose and poetry, it is part ode, part autobiography, part literary analysis, part metaphysical exploration It is historically important as it provides much of the ...

    In a nutshell I didn t love Dante that much when I read his Divine Comedy months ago I didn t see him as great and inspiring as other people see him Now, with this short book about his one and only love Beatrice, I enjoyed it a little bit But I don t think it s as good as I expected or hoped It was a good read Just good Not THAT good In a nutshell I didn t lo...

    True love is theological This is the conclusion one reaches while reading this early work of the writer of the Divine Comedy Dante Alighieri wrote La Vita Nuova at the age of twenty six, shortly after the death of his beloved Beatrice.On the surface this book is simply a collection of love poetry, displaying all the conventions of courtly love Boy meets girl Boy loves girl Boy is too overcome with a sense of his own unworthiness to ever speak to girl Girl dies The end However, below the True love is theological This is the conclusion one reaches while reading this early work of the writer of the Divine Comedy Dante Alighieri wrote La Vita Nuova at the age of twenty six, shortly after the death of his beloved Beatrice.On the surface this book is simply a collection of love poetry, displaying all the conventions of courtly love Boy meets girl Boy loves girl Boy is too overcome with a sense of his own unworthiness to ever speak to girl Girl dies The end However, below the surface, this book is a profound reflection on the nature of love and of how human love can lead us to Divine Love Indeed, Dante becomes a servant of Divine Love throughout the book as he meditates on Beatrice and mourns for Beatrice In the quality of perfection which she possesses, a quality that is actually a result of Dante s love for her, Dante sees an image of salvation itself and gives himself wholeheartedly to it When, in one poem, Dante w...

    Most won t agree but I consider La Vita Nuova Dante s greatest work The combination of poetry and prose comes as a welcome suprise and it helps us to better understand what Dante went through and what events inspired him The biggest obstacle between La Vita Nuova and its readers is the way Dante analyses each poem afterward, explaining their parts and themes I am not a fan of that either, it takes away some of the intimacy we can see and feel throughout the book But it is a book for poets by Most won t agree but I consider La Vita Nuova Dante s greatest work The combination of poetry and prose comes as a welcome suprise and it helps us to better understand what Dante went through and what events inspired him The biggest obstacle between La Vita Nuova and its readers is the way Dante analyses each poem afterward, explaining their parts and themes I am not a fan of that either, it takes away some of the intimacy we can see and feel throughout the book But it is a book for poets by a poet, so I can forgive that quite easily And if we take that away, what remains is raw, pure, profound and very human story of a poor soul that will never get the only thing it longs for We see the way he changes and ...

    This short little work is well worth reading if you want to knowabout the origins of Dante s love affair with Beatrice or,accurately, if you want to read about the edited representation of the origins of his love which Dante presents In many ways, this is my least favourite of Dante s works Although to his contemporaries, Dante s inclusion of commentary upon the poems was revolutionary, to modern eyes, they appear rather trite and self evident The first section of the poem appe This short little work is well worth reading if you wan...

    No one agrees, but I think this is Dante s greatest work It seems to be genuinely from the heart, whether it is or not, and so I find it beautiful Largely absent are the seething hatred and revenge strategies that ruin THE DIVINE COMEDY for me.

    New Life by Dante Alighieri is one of the most elegant short works of poetry and prose in Western literature This book is around eighty pages, but it is one that inspires the spirit eternally This work precedes Dante s timeless masterpiece Divine Comedy by over ten years, and if you want a glimpse into that work, but don t have the time to read that lengthy collection now, this work will completely satisfy your needs It is the perfect starting point into the beautiful world o...
