Amore e ragione nella ‘Vita nuova’



Amore e ragione nella ‘Vita nuova’

Lecture: Amore e ragione nella ‘Vita nuova’

As part of the Week of the Italian Language in the World

The purpose of this presentation is to emphasise how, in his autobiographical work Vita nuova, Dante bases his path to inner regeneration on the quest for a love that is underpinned by the "constancy of reason". The intuition of an intimately rational love breaks the ideological and linguistic mould of courtly tradition and trespasses the still innovative philosophical concept of his foremost friend Guido Cavalcanti, thus opening unexplored possibilities for the poetic word, and paving the way that will lead to the prophetic invention of the Commedia.
