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.
