Note on Typography: The first letter in the first line of each major section of the
book (the Preface, Table of Contents, Table of Poets in Part I,
Introduction to Part II, The New Life (La Vita Nuova), Appendix to
Part II, and Index) is a drop capital, as is the first letter of
each poem (except those contained within the Vita Nuova and the
Appendix to Part II). This results in the following line's
indentation being always displaced slightly to the right. In
addition, poem titles that extend beyond two lines are set with a
hanging indent instead of being centered.
