Göttliche Stimme, irdische Schrift
Divine Voices, Earthly Writings: Dante, Petrarca, and Catherine of Siena

Dante, Petrarca und Caterina da Siena

Previous interpretations of the canonical texts of the Trecento adopted the perspectives of their male subjects. For the first time, this study presents a reading of the poetic figurations of female voices. In their songs, voices, and speeches, the protagonists Beatrice, Laura, and Catherine of Siena open their own perspective for interpretation. The study also makes a major contribution to the history of voice.
