About the Author

Dante (real name Durante) Alighieri was born in Florence, Italy in 1265. His family belonged to the lower aristocracy and were not considered wealthy. He was married to Gemma Donati in 1285. But his real love was Beatrice Portinari. She was a major influcenc in his live and it was her untimely death in 1290 that led Dante to write his first book of verse entitled Vita Nuova which detailed his tragic and distant love for Beatrice. It is also notable that this book was written in Italian when, at that time, most other works were in Latin. It is Beatrice's character, representing Divine Enlightenment, that guides Dante in his journey through Paradiso (Heaven). Dante's other works include: Convivio, Monarchia, De Vulgari Eloquentia. He died from a fever in Ravenna, Italy in 1320.
