Scholarly Commentary


DGR's 1861 book of translations was divided into two large sections, of which this was the first. The second part was headed “Dante and His Circle”. When he came to revise and reprint the book in 1874, he reversed the order of the two sections and changed the title of the book from The Early Italian Poets to Dante and his Circle.
