Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The first complete English translation of a compendium of classical material by the 13th-century teacher of Dante. The genre, popular for nearly a millennium, was dying out by then, but the popularity of Brunetto's work lies in its being in vernacular French (rather than in Latin), and its skillful organization. The material ranges from world history and Aristotle's ethics to natural science and rhetoric, and throws light on Dante's ideas and practices. Based on the 13th-century Escorial manuscript. Unannotated. No subject index.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
