Reviews

'As well as a translation, [Frisardi] offers the most recent Italian text, ... along with a long thoughtful introduction and more than 200 pages of notes. ... The Convivio ... demands application and reflection. Frisardi provides serious, up-to-date help for the willing anglophone reader - substantial nourishment.' Peter Hainsworth, The Times Literary Supplement
'Andrew Frisardi's new dual-language translation situates itself carefully into [a] flourishing current of contemporary work, and makes a most welcome addition to the available literature. ... Frisardi's excellent edition-translation and its apparatus is to be welcomed for its concern to present afresh the Convivio to an anglophone readership and for the ways it foregrounds its importance and multifaceted character as one of Dante's most important 'other works'.' Simon Gilson, Speculum
'I welcome this book as one of the finest heralds of an upcoming, new phase in the life of Dante's Convivio.' Ambrogio Camozzi Pistoja, Temenos Academy Review
