about

Vita Nuova (1292-94) is the first of Dante's major writings. It is a supreme work of love; thirty-one poems are linked by a lyrical prose narrative poem celebrating and debating the subject of love. In the opening chapter Dante sets himself the task of giving meaning to the poetry which hecomposed and the events which took place after his meeting with Beatrice and the `Lord of Love'. The `new life' which this meeting inspired is the subject of Dante's most profound creation, which has been read variously as biography, religious allegory, and a meditation on poetry itself.

'the Vita Nuova calls for a bold translator ... Mark Musa, who has published a well-known translation of the Divine Comedy, is much better qualified than most for the task.'Times LIterary Supplement
