The Evil Master

Il Cattivo Maestro

Author of numerous poetry anthologies, Angelo Minerva, in the essay The Evil Master, analyses the real reasons that led the Florentine poet to conceive and compose the Divina Commedia (Divine Comedy) and, at the same time, to emphasise the strategy he developed to prevail over a society he condemns unreservedly, not even sparing his literary colleagues from the present and the past.

The visionary experience of the afterlife, from the admittedly messianic values, offers him, indeed, the possibility to rise as the supreme judge, so he can condemn or absolve, not always, nor only at the light of the Christian ethics, a multitude of people deliberately taken to converge in the poem’s mesh.
