Empty Flags And Fallen 'Angeli': Dante And The Imagery Of The Capitol Riot, Kristina Olson 2021 George Mason University

Empty Flags And Fallen 'Angeli': Dante And The Imagery Of The Capitol Riot, Kristina Olson

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

After the mob attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, which disrupted the certification of the 2020 presidential election, several photographs of the insurrectionists have begun to emerge. Jacob Chansley, known as Jake Angeli, was one of the many insurrectionists photographed on the Senate dais after the chamber had been evacuated of all elected officials, who were escorted into safety. Angeli wore a horned, double raccoon-tail helmet, painted his face the colors of the US flag, and carried a spear with the American flag. While the appearance of the Confederate flag born into its halls by the same ...


Seven Hundred Years After Dante’S Death. The Imperishable Image Of An Eternal Poet, Matteo Maselli 2021 University of Macerata

Seven Hundred Years After Dante’S Death. The Imperishable Image Of An Eternal Poet, Matteo Maselli

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This report provides a summary of the main initiatives that took place in 2021 to celebrate the seventh centenary of Dante’s death (publications, conferences, exhibitions, events of various kinds). The plurality of the episodes recorded demonstrates how the attention paid to Dante is not an exclusive trait of the higher spheres of culture, but is instead well rooted even in non-academic contexts.


From The "Allora" To The "Non Ancora:" Luzi's Essays On Dante, Thomas E. Peterson 2021 University of Georgia

From The "Allora" To The "Non Ancora:" Luzi's Essays On Dante, Thomas E. Peterson

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

In five critical essays on Dante extending from 1945 to 1999 Mario Luzi presents his view of the Divina Commedia as a living work that requires its readers to enter into its internal creative process in order to comprehend its moral and teleological meanings. At the center of the essays is the figure of Dante, identical to the poem’s protagonist, whose absolute identification with the objects of his thought gives rise to a poetry of prophecy, proclamation and testimony rooted in the experience of exile. Dante sees exile as the universal condition of humanity, which presupposes a spiritual struggle ...


Surprising Encounters: Manzoni’S Dantean Rhetorical Palimpsest ('Promessi Sposi' Vii-Viii And Xxxiii-Xxxiv), Anthony Nussmeier 2021 University of Dallas

Surprising Encounters: Manzoni’S Dantean Rhetorical Palimpsest ('Promessi Sposi' Vii-Viii And Xxxiii-Xxxiv), Anthony Nussmeier

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

Previous investigations of Alessandro Manzoni’s Dantean borrowings have unearthed a quantity of stilemes and syntagm that have revised substantially the thesis that Dantean reminiscences in Manzoni are “pochissimi” and possess only an “affinità generica” (A. Mazza). Rodney J. Lokaj’s systematic study of Manzoni’s reuse of Dante in the “comic key” has contributed greatly to our understanding of Promessi sposi as a treasure trove of references, veiled and unveiled, to the sommo poeta. Inf. 5 has been thought commonly to be the touchstone of intertextuality between Dante and Manzoni. This essay unearths further connections between Inf. 5 and ...


New Light On Dante’S Construction Of Geryon, Paul Hosle 2021 University of Chicago

New Light On Dante’S Construction Of Geryon, Paul Hosle

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This essay aims to improve our understanding of Dante’s construction of Geryon in Inferno 16-17. First, I address the vexed question concerning the truth-status of the monster vis-à-vis that of the poem. After rejecting alternative interpretations, I defend the exclusively allegorical reading of Geryon and suggest that it should be seen as a conscious corrective reaction to Virgil’s metapoetic construction of Fama in Aeneid 4. In the second part of the essay, I demonstrate an unappreciated wordplay between Gerion(e) and girone and argue that this serves as a key to appreciating his allegorical nature. The latent anagrammatic ...


"Molti E Molte:" Women Readers And Lady Philosophy In Dante's Convivio, Alyssa M. Granacki 2021 Duke University

"Molti E Molte:" Women Readers And Lady Philosophy In Dante's Convivio, Alyssa M. Granacki

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

In the first Book of the Convivio, Dante names women among the readers of his text, which include “non solamente maschi ma femmine.” However, the poet’s exhortations to women in the canzone Amor che ne la mente suggest that female readers may have a unique relationship to knowledge. Juxtaposing Dante’s interpretation with the language of the poem, this article analyzes how the Convivio articulates the pursuit of philosophical knowledge as one which is at once gendered and universal. Considering Dante’s woman reader raises questions such as: To what extent are women invited to participate in knowledge-seeking? How ...
