The second volume in the original William and Katherine Devers Series in Dante Studies, The Fiore in Context: Dante, France, Tuscany is the record of a milestone in the study of the Fiore, and perhaps in Dante studies. Contributors to this volume examine many aspects of the poem, including textual questions, its cultural context, and its relations with the Roman de la Rose and the Comedy.
“Many essays in this volume contribute to our appreciation of the Fiore and the small, yet growing, body of research dedicated to its analysis. Other essays deal primarily with questions of attribution and therefore echo past scholarly concerns. . . . [T]he volume as a whole succeeds in providing us with a valuable handbook to issues regarding questions of attribution and with new points of departure for those of us working in the field of Fiore studies.” — Speculum
