Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This book proposes that though Hell seems a God-forsaken place, every scene, character and major image in Dante s Divine Comedy - Hell, Purgatory and Paradise - is associated with one of the Persons of the Holy Trinity, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as it were lurking in the shadows. Thus every one of the hundred cantos has a dedication to a Person, and the cantos form overarching groups which are also so dedicated, making the whole poem like a vast symbolic cathedral, where every action has a secret divine dimension. These presences make it very doubtful that Dante really thinks God tortures people for eternity! For readers who may be unfamiliar with Dante, the author has made a translation, abridged, in prose and verse, thus hoping to provide an introduction to Dante for those who do not know him and a new way of reading him for those who do. The result of decades of reflection on Dante and the Trinity, Dante s Hidden God offers a fresh and challenging vision of the Commedia . Offered as an invitation to read Dante, this inventive presentation of Dante s masterpiece will intrigue readers and gives an accessible account of Paul Priest s highly original ideas about the sacrato poema .

Riassunto:

This book proposes that though Hell seems a God-forsaken place, every scene, character and major image in Dante's Divine Comedy - Hell, Purgatory and Paradise - is associated with one of the Persons of the Holy Trinity, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as it were lurking in the shadows. Thus every one of the hundred cantos has a 'dedication' to a Person, and the cantos form overarching groups which are also so dedicated, making the whole poem like a vast symbolic cathedral, where every action has a secret divine dimension. These presences make it very doubtful that Dante really thinks God tortures people for eternity! For readers who may be unfamiliar with Dante, the author has made a translation, abridged, in prose and verse, thus hoping to provide an introduction to Dante for those who do not know him and a new way of reading him for those who do. "The result of decades of reflection on Dante and the Trinity, Dante's Hidden God offers a fresh and challenging vision of the 'Commedia' Offered as an invitation to read Dante, this inventive presentation of Dante's masterpiece will intrigue readers and gives an accessible account of Paul Priest's highly original ideas about the 'sacrato poema'" Dr Matthew Treherne, Senior Lecturer in Italian, University of Leeds

About the Author:

Paul Priest is an academic, Christian, and occasional poet, a lover of words, especially musical words, with or without music. After graduating from Harvard he briefly studied musicology, and when learning Italian so as to understand operas came across Dante, who blew his mind. This led to a doctorate in Comparative Literature and further study at the Societa dantesca italianea in Florence, where he made a discovery which so astonished him that he has been trying to explore and deepen it more or less ever since. It is the subject of this book. He has taught at Saint John's College, Annapolis, but mostly at Trinity University College in Leeds, England, as Senior Lecturer in English literature, 'teaching English to the English' as people liked to joke, but of course it was a common pursuit. He developed some audience-participation workshop productions of Shakespeare's plays, mingling Shakespeare's words with ours. He was also a lay preacher and dramatist in the Church of England. Now retired and widowed, he lives in Leeds.
