Dear friends of Vernon Lee and her circle,
this year marks the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death (Ravenna, September 1321). We are delighted to forward the invitation to attend the important Conference held in Florence, where the poet of poets was born in 1265, and whose Inferno was translated by Lee’s half-brother, the poet Eugene Lee-Hamilton, in 1898:
“Vita Nova” e “Comedia” nella cultura anglo-americana dell’Ottocento a Firenze/
“Vita Nova” and “Comedia” in 19th century anglo-american culture in Florence
It is organised by the Associazione Culturale Il Palmerino, the British Institute of Florence and the Consiglio Regionale della Toscana and the patronage of Gabinetto G.P. Vieusseux.
The scientific committee: Pr. Serena Cenni, Pr. Elisa Bizzotto, Pr. Sefano-Maria Evangelista.
