Written by ten distinguished Dante scholars, the essays in Dante Now represent the most significant areas of contemporary Dante studies. This collection, originating from a 1993 University of Notre Dame conference, includes some of the three intensely cultivated areas of Dante studies: poetics, “minor works,”and reception.

“. . . much to recommend . . . for student and medievalist alike. . .” — _The Bulletin of International Medieval Research _
“Taking its cue from an essay of George Steiner’s which celebrated the utter relevance of ‘Dante Now’ some twenty years ago, the present volume characterizes very successfully the variety of contemporary responses to the poet and, in particular, to the teaching of the American Dantist Charles Singleton and of his first students.” — International Journal of the Classical Tradition
