- About this book
The first part of this book examines a literary tradition inspired by the legend that Dante had a favourite spot in Florence where he like to sit on summers' evenings - a spot marked by the so-called Stone of Dante; the second part discusses later Florentine monuments to the poet and considers how those came to displace the Stone of Dante.
