The thirty-one poems in this book are linked by a lyrical prose narrative celebrating and debating the subject of love. Composed reflecting upon Dantes meeting with Beatrice and the Lord of Love, it is a love story set to the task of confirming the new life this meeting inspired. With a critical introduction and explanatory notes, this is a translation of a supreme work which has been read variously as biography, religious allegory, and a meditation on poetry itself.
