Part One: Exegesis

The first part of the book examines the ways in which Dante's works have been interpreted over the centuries. The authors begin by discussing the early commentators on Dante, who sought to explain the meaning of his works in a literal and allegorical sense.

The authors then trace the history of Dante interpretation up to the present day, discussing the different approaches that have been taken to his work. They show how Dante's works have been used to support a variety of different political, religious, and philosophical agendas.

The authors conclude the first part of the book by arguing that there is no one definitive interpretation of Dante's works. They suggest that Dante's works are open to multiple interpretations, and that each reader can find their own meaning in them.

Part Two: History

The second part of the book provides an overview of the historical and cultural context of Dante's life and work. The authors begin by discussing the political and social conditions of Florence in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries.

They then discuss the intellectual and cultural climate of the time, paying particular attention to the rise of scholasticism and the rediscovery of Aristotle. The authors also discuss the influence of Christianity on Dante's work.

The second part of the book concludes by providing a brief biography of Dante. The authors discuss Dante's early life, his political career, and his exile from Florence.

Part Three: Philosophy

The third part of the book explores the philosophical themes that run through Dante's works. The authors begin by discussing Dante's view of the human person. They then discuss Dante's views on God, the nature of reality, and the meaning of life.

The authors conclude the third part of the book by arguing that Dante was a deeply philosophical poet. They show how Dante's works engage with the central philosophical questions of his time, and how they continue to resonate with readers today.
