    Dante Alighieri, popularly known as Dante, was a chief Italian poet during the middle ages. Born in Florence, he spent a large portion of his life in exile. Although more famous for his long poem, ‘Divine Comedy’, he was also a distinguished prose writer, literally theorist, philosopher and political thinker.   Matthew Pearl is the author of The Dante Club, a literary thriller about a group of 19th-century Harvard scholars secretly working on a translation of The Divine Comedy who are forced out of.

    Dante Alighieri (usually referred to by his first name) was exiled from his beloved city of Florence because of political affiliations and contractually married to a woman he did not love while the woman he did love died at the young age of He found himself as an older man trying to figure out why his path in life had brought him to this point. Five years after Beatrice’s death, Dante published his first book, The Vita Nuova (know as The New Life in English). Vita Nuova accounts his tragic love for Beatrice. The Vita Nuova was very notable at the time because it was the fist book to be written in verse and it was also written in Italian instead of Latin.

    As a member of the White faction, Dante was appointed ambassador to San Gimignano on 7 May and elected a prior from 15 June to 15 August of that same year. During his time in office he devoted his efforts above all to having the commune pursue a policy of independence from the hegemonic aims of Pope Boniface VIII.

Filled mainly with Greeks, who Dante hate, his political enemies, including popes, and traitors, with the worst punishment to those who betrayed his idol, Julius Caesar. In the first precinct of Circle Seven we see a “river of blood; and in it boil all those who have by force, assaulted others” (XII, ).

Dante reads an inscription on one of the tombs indicating it belongs to Pope Anastasius II – although some modern scholars hold that Dante erred in the verse mentioning Anastasius ("Anastasio papa guardo, / lo qual trasse Fotin de la via dritta", lines 8–9), confusing the pope with the Byzantine emperor of the time, Anastasius I.
