Title : Francesca, una Beatrice incompiuta (INF V 73-143) [Dante's Francesca da Rimini is an example of heroic love; the poet found precedents in Ovid's "Heroides" and Virgil's portrait of Dido; Francesca and Paolo fit the stereotype of courtly lovers, but Dante's opinion of their surrender to passion is negative, because they separated themselves from God; Francesca, the earthly woman, is contrasted with Beatrice, the heavenly one, with Francesca being an incomplete version of the other].

Title : Gentucca Dantesca e Dintorni [Gentucca, a figure in the "Purgatorio," represents Epicurean philosophy, as Ulysses and Cato represent stoicism; Dante can be described as having committed, at least in his youth, the "Epicurean" sins of gluttony, prodigality, and lust. Gentucca may have

Title : The Vernal Paradox: Dante's Matelda [The author identifies the "donna soletta" of Dante's "Purgatorio" with Matelda (from the same book), and examines their relationship to Proserpina, the goddess of spring. Matelda has most often been identified with Matilda, Countess of Tuscany and ally of Pope Gregory VII. However, the author argues that the more important consideration is the figure's associations with spring, the Church Militant, and natural justice. Since she is not named until later by Beatrice, her identity may not be extremely significant. However, the author believes she most likely represents Saint Mathilde, empress and wife of Heinrich I, Holy Roman emperor. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
