Concise Dictionary of Proper Names and Notable Matters in the Works of Dante

PREFACE

THIS Concise Dante Dictionary, based upon my Dictionary of Proper Names and Notable Matters in the Works of Dante, which, originally published in 1898, has now for some time been out of print, is offered to students and readers of Dante as a convenient hand-book, and companion to the Oxford edition of the complete works of Dante.

The articles have been carefully revised, and, it is hoped, brought up to date, throughout. A certain number of new articles have been added, comprising the names of persons and places mentioned in the tenzone, or poetical correspondence, between Dante and Forese Donati1 (which was included for the first time in the third edition of the Oxford Dante), and in the Latin poems addressed to Dante by Giovanni del Virgilio. On the other hand, the names which occur in the canzone, 'O patria, degna di trionfal fama' ( Canz. XVIII in the Oxford Dante), have been omitted, it having been established that this poem is not by Dante.2

As the scope of the book does not allow of references to authorities in the body of the work, I am glad to take this opportunity of repeating my acknowledgements to the writers specified in the Preface to the larger work, among whom I may specially mention Prof. Casini, the last edition of whose commentary on the Divina Commedia3 has been

In six sonnets, numbered LII, LII*, LIII, LIII*, LIV, LIV*, in the Oxford Dante ( third edition, 1904, pp. 179-80). For most of the information concerning the persons and places referred to in this correspondence I am indebted to Prof. Isidoro del Lungo's article on the tenzone, published in his volume of studies, Dante ne' Tempi di Dante, pp. 437-61.

The same may be said of the ballata, 'Fresca rosa novella' (Ball. IV in the Oxford Dante), which is by Guido Cavalcanti.
