Biografie (woord)

Nick Havely has taught courses on Dante and on medieval literature for over thirty years at the University of York. His published work on Italian trecento poetry began with a volume of translations: Chaucer′s Boccaccio: Sources for Troilus and the Knight′s and Franklin′s Tales (1980; reissued 1992) and includes Dante′s Modern Afterlife: Reception and Response from Blake to Heaney (1998) and Dante and the Franciscans: Poverty and the Papacy in the ′Commedia′ (2004). He has recently been awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship for his next project, which is a study entitled Dante in the English–Speaking World, from the Fourteenth Century to the Present.


"A richly nuanced discussion that offers an excellent introduction to Dante and will be read with profit by anyone coming to the great poet for the first time. ... This is a useful and informative introduction to Dante, wide in its scope and accessible in its presentation." ( Notes and Queries, December 2009)

"It is a book that can be read profitably from cover to cover, or it can be used as a resource for the reader who, for pedagogical or informational purposes, wants to pick and choose." (Speculum–A Journal of Medieval Studies, April 2009)

"All–in–one book covers everything .Written in clean, accessible prose. Even Dante experts will enjoy Havely′s refresher course. Vital in the library and classroom. Essential." (CHOICE, July 2008)
