Dante

By R.W.B. Lewis
Narrated by Grover Gardner / 5 hours 23 minutes

In Dante, Lewis traces the life and complex development—emotional, artistic, philosophical—of this supreme poet-historian, from his wanderings through Tuscan hills and splendid churches to his days as a young soldier fighting for democracy, to his civic leadership and years of embittered exile from the city that would fiercely reclaim him a century later. Lewis reveals the boy who first encounters the mythic Beatrice, the lyric poet obsessed with life and death, the grand master of dramatic narrative and allegory, and his monumental search for ultimate truth in The Divine Comedy. It is in this masterpiece of self-discovery and redemption that Lewis finds Dante’s own autobiography—and the sum of all his shifting passions and epiphanies.
 
“Lewis has an uncanny ability to capture crucial moments in Dante’s life and development as an artist.”—Booklist
