  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Dante; Vita Nova; Commedia; Identity.

The lyric self finds its first complete realization in Dante's "Vita Nova" with the death of Beatrice. This essay investigates the destiny of the self in the "Commedia" by combining a psychoanalytical conception of identity with medieval theological thought and by providing insights into the first canto of the "Inferno" and the last one of the "Paradiso".
