Vita Nuova

Author(s): Dante Alighieri


Vita Nuova is universally recognized as Dante's early masterpiece, and it includes some of his best poetry outside the Divine Comedy, to which it can be regarded as a sort of prequel. Part poetical tribute, part autobiography, it traces Dante's passionate love for Beatrice from his first meeting with her as a boy to her premature death at the age of twenty-four and the psychological and emotional turmoil that this caused him.
