Reader's note

A 1948 edition of The Portable Dante! The genius of Dante Alighieri, who has been called "the first universal mind of our modern era" is here presented in a rich selection which includes The Divine Comedy in its entirety, and also makes available his fascinating earlier work, the Vita Nuova or New Life. In addition, there are generous excerpts from Dante's epoch-making treatise on the use of the "vernacular tongue" and his great work on monarchy, plus several Epistles and a number of shorter lyrics, which he called his Rhymes. The verse translation of The Divine Comedy is that of the distinguished English poet Laurence Binyon.in Dante's original meter, triple rhyme, it retains the particular value that prose translations have lost - the poet's art.
