Review of Kenelm Foster and Patrick Boyde, eds., Cambridge Readings in Dante's "Comedy"

Barolini, Teodolinda

This Volume constitutes a sentimental as well as chronological sequel to a previous collection of lecturae on the Comedy published by Cambridge University Press, entitled The Mind of Dante; whereas the earlier effort was edited by Uberto Limentani, the current volume consists of ten essays dedicated to Professor Limentani by his colleagues on the occasion of his retirement. The editors take care to point out in the preface that the essays were intended as lectures for nonspecialists (indeed, footnotes are kept to a minimum); whatever the cause, these Cambridge readings are, as a group, characterized by an elucidative rather than critical zeal, which tends to make for a competent but somewhat plodding approach to the Comedy
