"La Vita Nuova" marked a turning point in European literature, introducing personal experience into the strict formalism of medieval love poetry. The sequence of poems tells the story of Danteas passion for Beatrice, the beautiful sister of one of his closest friends, transformed through his writing into a symbol of love that was both spiritual and romantic. From unrequited passion to the profound grief he experiences at the loss of his love, this work intersperses exquisite verse with Danteas own commentary on the structure and origins of each poem, offering a unique insight into the poetas art and skill. Barbara Reynoldsas translation, acclaimed for its lucidity and faithfulness to the original, is now enhanced with a new introduction and other material.
