Dante is one of the greatest poets in the Italian language; with the comic story-teller Boccaccio and the poet Petrarch, he forms the classic trio of Italian s. Dante Alighieri was born in the city-state Florence in 1265. Politics as well as love deeply influenced Dante’s literary and emotional life. His work consisted of writing passionate political and moral epistles and his Divine Comedy, which contains the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. He finally died in Ravenna in 1321.
