The first of these four essays explores the genesis and significance of Oznam’s mid-19th century interpretation of Dante. Ozanam illustrated the centrality of 13th century Catholic philosophy to the «Divina Commedia» demonstrating how philosophy assumes poetic form with its own language and structure. The other essays comprise a re-examination of Mazzini’s political interpretation of Dante and two 'lecturae' (Purg. XVI and Par. XII) centring on the links between conceptual elements, historical sources and poetic form.
