520    "Waking to find himself shipwrecked on a strange shore 
       before a dark wood, the pilgrim of the Divine Comedy 
       realizes he must set his sights higher and guide his ship 
       to a radically different port. Starting on the sand of 
       that very shore with Dante, John Freccero begins retracing
       the famous voyage recounted by the poet nearly 700 years 
       ago. Freccero follows pilgrim and poet through the Comedy 
       and then beyond, inviting readers both uninitiated and 
       accomplished to join him in navigating this complex 
       medieval masterpiece and its influence on later 
       literature. Perfectly impenetrable in its poetry and 
       unabashedly ambitious in its content, the Divine Comedy is
       the cosmos collapsed on itself, heavy with dense matter 
       and impossible to expand. Yet Dante's great triumph is 
       seen in the tiny, subtle fragments that make up the 
       seamless whole, pieces that the poet painstakingly sewed 
       together to form a work that insinuates itself into the 
       reader and inspires the work of the next author. Freccero 
       magnifies the most infinitesimal elements of that 
       intricate construction to identify self-similar parts, 
       revealing the full breadth of the great poem. Using this 
       same technique, Freccero then turns to later giants of 
       literature- Petrarch, Machiavelli, Donne, Joyce, and Svevo
       -demonstrating how these authors absorbed these smallest 
       parts and reproduced Dante in their own work. In the 
       process, he confronts questions of faith, friendship, 
       gender, politics, poetry, and sexuality, so that traveling
       with Freccero, the reader will both cross unknown 
       territory and reimagine familiar faces, swimming always in
       Dante's wake"--|cProvided by publisher 
520    "In Dante's Wake presents a collection of essays from 
       internationally renowned Dante scholar John Freccero. 
       Penetrating first the Divine Comedy and then the powerful 
       influence of Dante on those who followed him, Freccero's 
       volume is an invaluable companion for any reader of Dante"
