The Web Site

      The online version of Lectura Dantis, a perpetual work-in-progress, was launched as a service to its many loyal readers. To this end, the first four issues (now out of print) are being made available here to the general public. As the site continues to grow, selected articles from other numbers will be included in their entirety. As an additional benefit to our readers, abstracts of published articles are also available. Should you care to contribute an additional abstract, you are warmly encouraged to do so. Inspired by the spirit of the paper version, the web site aims to enhance, not supplant, the existence of a high-quality forum for Dante research and interpretation.
      The online version of the journal is hosted by the Italian Studies Department at Brown University. All correspondence related to it should be sent to Michael Papio, Associate Professor of Italian Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Although LD is no longer published, you may still order back issues and supplementary volumes.
