    Dante and Beatrice

    If you want to know more about Dante and Beatrice, pick up a copy of his Vita Nuova; it is basically an autobiographical account of his love of Beatrice including his poems about her (and some others). Plus, it is a highly enjoyable read.

    Indeed vita Nuova is the best way to find out about Dante and his love.

    sigh, la vita nouva, what beautiful poetry it is. really makes you apreciate love for the sake of love. i love how he describes seeing her for the first time and hearing a heavenly voice and all that and then how he didnt actaully meet her for 9 years.
