Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

This book chapter focuses on the inner performative claim Dante associated to the "music" in his poem. After dealing with the many functions of music in the Dantean text (narrative, drammatic, allusive, figural, cognitive) it points at the anagogical allegory as the key feature of the Christian performative and transformative power associated to the song (canticles and canti) of the Comedy.
