    Description
    The recovery of Dantes metaphysics - which are very different from our own - is essential, argues Christian Moevs, if we are to resolve what has been called the central problem in the interpretation of the Comedy. That problem is what to make of the Comedys claim to the status of revelation, vision, or experiential record - as something more than imaginative literature. In this book Moevs offers the first sustained treatment of the metaphysical picture that grounds and motivates the Comedy, and the relation between those metaphysics and Dantes poetics. Moevs arrives at the radical conclusion that Dante believed that all of what we perceive as reality, the spatio-temporal world, is in fact a creation or projection of conscious being. Armed with this new understanding, Moevs is able to shed light on a series of perennial issues in the interpretation of the Comedy.
