Summary:
"Podestà ends his appreciation of Dante with a savage rant against English writers, who are perfidiously distracting young Italians from studious appreciation of their national literary monuments. The two chief culprits are, unsurprisingly, Byron and Walter Scott. Byron is especially guilty, he ‘who caught in that poetic wave of sorrow and guilt a thousand immature minds … [which] senselessly lost sight of the epoch that could turn their spirit and blood into precious nourishment, gained by the potent intellect through study of the Commedia'"--Quaritch's July 2018 catalog.
