Scholarly Commentary


This is the note that DGR out at the head of his 1874 edition of The Early Italian Poets. The two main content sections of the latter were reversed in order, as DGR wrote in the “Advertisement”, “to make more evident at a first glance [the book's] important relation to Dante”. In the 1861 edition the “early Italian poets” came first, “Dante and his Circle”, second.
