Remembering Joseph Anthony Mazzeo

Barolini, Teodolinda

Joseph Anthony Mazzeo, who died on July 6, 1998, is best known to the readers of Dante Studies as the author of two volumes on Dante. Published back to back in 1958 and 1960, these books--Structure and Thought in the 'Paradiso' (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1958) and Medieval Cultural Tradition in Dante's 'Comedy' (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1960)--bear witness to a white-hot period of meditation on Dante and his cultural matrix that took place in the 1950s, in Mazzeo's scholarly youth.
