Overview

Dante on View opens an important new dimension in Dante studies. The volume's interdisciplinary approach to reception brings together literary criticism, visual culture and performance studies. Dante's Commedia is re-created through the performances of readers and artists in a wide range of media. The essays analyse creative uses of the poet from medieval manuscript illumination to nineteenth and twentieth-century stage productions, from film to ballet and hyperinstruments.

Dante on View opens an important new dimension in Dante studies: for the first time a collection of essays analyses the presence of the Italian Medieval poet Dante Alighieri in the visual and performing arts from the Middle Ages to the present day. The essays in this volume explore the image of Dante emerging in medieval illuminated manuscripts and later ideological and nostalgic uses of the poet. The volume also demonstrates the rich diversity of projects inspired by the Commedia both as an overall polysemic structure and as a repository of scenes, which generate a repertoire for painters, actors and film-makers. In its original multimediality, Dante's Commedia stimulates the performance of readers and artists working in different media from manuscript to stage, from ballet to hyperinstruments, from film to television. Through such a variety of media, the reception of Dante in the visual and performing arts enriches our understanding of the poet and of the arts represented at key moments of formal and structural change in the European cultural world.
