I would like to express my gratitude to my colleagues at the Uni- versity of Notre Dame who guided me through the intricacies of the English language: Randolph Klawiter and William Hunt, who read Chapter I and 11, and foremost Edward Vasta, who read the entire manuscript and made many valuable emendations. 1 am obviously responsible for both content and style of the book. My research was conducted at the University of Notre Dame, which houses one of the foremost Dante collections in the country. I would like therefore to express my gratitude to all the librarians, including my wife Marilyn, who were helpful in so many ways during the various phases of my research and writing. I have also beneﬁted from a Summer grant from the Dean’s Special Projects Funds, University of Notre Dame (1980), Faculty Research Funds from the Ofﬁce of Research and spon~ sored Programs, University of Notre Dame (1981-1982; 1983-1984), and a grant from the American Philosophical Society (1981). All translations from foreign languages are mine, unless otherwise indicated. For the Commedz‘a I am particularly indebted to the transla- tion by John D. Sinclair and C. H. Sisson. Chapter 11.6 of this essay has appeared in a slightly different form in « L’Alighieri », XXII.2, 1981, pp. 3-11; a more detailed version of Ch. 111.3 has appeared in «Espetienze letterarie», V11.2, 1982, pp. 3—27; Chapters 111.5 and IV.2-6 are totally new and expanded versions of two brief articles which appeared respectively in « L’Alighieri », XIX, 1978, pp. 3-17 and XVIII, 1977, pp. 2940. A brief summary of some conclusions presented in Ch. V1 appeared in « Paciﬁc Coast Philology », XVII, 1982, pp. 24-30, under the title of Dante’s Poetry of Dreams.
