I've just read it out of curiosity, as Dante's works do not interest me particularly.Very interesting though to note the following :"Such coincidences, extending to precise details, cannot be accidental, and we have many reasons for admitting that Dante was really inspired, to a considerable extent, by the writings of Muhyiddin [Ibn Arabi], but how could he have known of them ?"***"De telles coïncidences, jusque dans des détails extrêmement précis, ne peuvent être accidentelles et nous avon [...]

One is left amazed at his 'insights' of Dante's esoterism. Read this as a companion to the Divine Comedy which I still am reading. I expect to keep coming back to this book during my read :)

Molto interessante! Offre numerosi spunti di interpretazione all' opera di Dante e sottolinea le connessioni che legano molte culture così diverse in apparenza tra loro ma in fondo così simili.
