C.H. Grandgent has here gathered various addresses and poems that cluster about the Dante celebration of 1921. Its eight essays range over a wide variety of topics, from an inspiring statement of Dante’s meaning for the twentieth century to a study of his prosody. The general reader will accordingly find it an attractive introduction to the “majesty” of Dante’s thought, while the professional student of the subject will gain from it fresh interpretations and new light upon important scholarly details. Throughout the book are scattered fragments of translation from Dante’s works and from his contemporaries’ poetry; the volume, moreover, begins with a sestina and ends with a sonnet, both of which reveal Grandgent’s skill as an original poet.
