Vita Nuova


Written by Dante Alighieri and translated by Mark Musa


I read this because I was curious to read something other then the Inferno. While I enjoyed the poetry and the stories behind each, I feel like the dissection of the poems killed the presentation. While it was interesting to read his perspective on their dissection, it left it feeling like I was reading a text book rather then a book of love poetry. Not something I will read again. It took me so long to read because I had to keep setting it aside for long periods. And it was slow reading on top of that. I’d recommend just getting a collection of his poems without all the other stuff.

I am Myself I am a Wife Blessed with love I am a Mother Endowed with divinity Through the power of creation I am a Daughter Brought into this world With unending hope And the promise of the future I am a Sister Made fierce and strong While forged with kindness Protector and protected Spiraling together forever I am a Nurse Holding out the hands of healing And offering the sick comfort And the dying love Knowing that through this All things are healed and made whole I am a Writer Creating myself and world Sharing the inner depths of humanity Bringing together the divine And the humble mortal I tell the story of the Goddess And am remembered forever
