p.Dante(8.0) - Truth


"Identifying himself with the Narrator, a concession charged with psychological risk, with an apparent denial and self-denial of the poetic, Dante vows to the reader that he is reporting verity. He swears it ("tigiuro") by that which is most precious ..." - George Steiner

8.0.1 - The main point: Dante's truth claim IS the Commedia.
8.0.2 - Duality Statement: Compare and contrast the values of truth between Dante's world and what we know and accept today as truthful and virtuous.
8.0.3 - Sentiments: - All that is true about the Commedia is defined and redefined into this masterpiece of Dante's greatest truth. Not to mention a delightful time travel to the sixteenth century. - Influence matters. When a giant like Dante says his Commedia is 'the' truth, this proposal to humanity is anything but prenuptial.
8.0.4 - Further reading: Commedia
8.0.5 - Existential Statement of Futurity:
8.0.6 - QUESTION:
8.0.7 - Populous Response:
