Description

History figures in Dante's works via the historical figures he includes in them. Dante also acts in history, even American history, in the story of his reception. These papers concern historical exiles and theories of citizenship and patriotism, bonds of kinship and family cruelty, especially in the cantos of Brunetto Latini and Cacciaguida (Inferno 15 and Paradiso 17), the historical pope Nicholas III (Inferno 19) and his relations with the Spiritual Franciscans, as well as the interest in Dante of the 19th century literary historian, George Ticknor.
