After almost seven centuries, Dante endures and even seems to haunt the present. Metamorphosing Dante explores what so many authors, artists and thinkers from varied backgrounds have found in Dante’s oeuvre, and the ways in which they have engaged with it through rewritings, dialogues, and transpositions. By establishing trans-disciplinary routes, the volume shows that, along with a corpus of multiple linguistic and narrative structures, characters, and stories, Dante has provided a field of tensions in which to mirror and investigate one’s own time. Authors explored include S. Beckett, W. Benjamin, A. Gide, D. Jarman, L. Jones/A. Baraka, J. Joyce, W. Koeppen, J. Lacan, Th. Mann, J. Merrill, E. Montale, P.P. Pasolini, G. Pressburger, R. Rauschenberg, Ch. Wright, V. Woolf.Manuele Gragnolati teaches Dante Studies at the University of Oxford, where he is Fellow of Somerville College. Fabio Camilletti is Assistant Professor of Italian Literature at the University of Warwick. Fabian Lampart is Privatdozent in German Literature at the University of Freiburg.
