Dante: The Poetics of Conversion - Freccero, John

Freccero enables us to see the "Divine Comedy" for the bold, poetic experiment that it is. Too many critics have domesticated Dante by separating his theology from his poetics. Freccero argues that to fail to see the convergence of the letter and the spirit, the pilgrim and the poet, is to fail to understand Dante's poetics of conversion.
