By: Anthony Jackson

Everyday life

Spent Most of his life in Florence Italy. He was very active in politics and because of his views he was exiled from Florence. He had gone to many different schools in and around Florence.

Dante's Works

Dante wrote poetry his most famous of which was the Divine Comedy. He also wrote Convivio and De vulgari eloquentia.

The Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy was written in 1308 and today is a world famous published book. This piece used his poetry to influence politics. I picked this work because it was one of the greatest pieces of literature since roman times. This piece shows the Humanism of the renaissance because Dante showed love as a major emotion.
