9781440079856: Dante in English Literature from Chaucer to Cary (C, 1380-1844): With Introduction, Notes, Biographical Notices, Chronological List, and General Index, Vol. 1 of 2 (Classic Reprint)

Dante in English literature from Chaucer in the fourteenth century to Gary in the nineteenth. The year 1844 has been selected as the terminus ad quern, as being the date of Gary sdeath, as well as of the publication of the last edition revised by himself of his epoch-making translation of the Divina Gommedia. The book, therefore, covers a period of some 460 years. The number of authors represented is between five and six hundred, viz. some fifty for the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries, nearly sixty for the seventeenth, about 150 for the eighteenth, and the remainder for the first forty-four years of the nineteenth. The number of separate works quoted, including letters, diaries, reviews, magazine articles, besides books proper, amounts to considerably over a thousand. Special pains have been taken to represent as fully as possible the somewhat formidable array of anonymous periodical literature, which is of the highest value for the purposes of this work, as reflecting the influence of Dante on the popular writers and critics of the day. English translations of standard foreign works have been included, as well as works written for English readers by foreign authors domiciled in England, many of which played a conspicuous part in spreading a knowledge of Dante on this side of the Ghannel. In a few cases works not written in English have been admitted; such, for instance, as Baretti s Discours sur Shakespeare et sur M. de Voltaire, Martinelli s Lettere Familiari e Critiche, and similar controversial pieces, composed and published in England, which, together with the passages from Voltaire sworks which they By an unfortunate accident the notes of sundry additional references to Dante in Blackwood s Magazine, and several other magazines and reviews, were mislaid, and were not recovered until it was too late to make use of them.
