Where can I find pictures of Dante or illustrations of his works?
I don’t have any pictures of Dante or illustrations of his work other than the ones in the "Art gallery"
of this site.
I suggest you to look for other ones in the website of the Digital Dante Project, here
site may be good.
Otherwise, try any other website devoted to Dante, among the ones linked in my link page
Please don’t ask me for any particular picture, because I don’t have it, nor I know where to find it.
Where can I find English translations of Dante’s work?
The only works by Dante of which I managed to find an English translation online are the ones listed in the "Download page
" of my site.
They’re available directly from the website of the Digital Dante Project
I don’t know any translation which is not listed here.
If you do, please notify me of it, so that I can update my pages.
Do you have a complete list of Dante’s works?
The works by Dante listed in the "His work
" section of my site are the complete list of his works.
There aren’t works by Dante not listed there.
Is there an Italian translation of the pages of your site or any other information about Dante in Italian?
No, I don’t have any, even if my mother-tongue is Italian.
I’ve chosen to write the site in English so that more people can enjoy it all around the world.
Where can I find an electronic version of "x" work by Dante?
I don’t know any website where to find any electronic versions of any work by Dante which is not also available in my website.
All the works I’ve found on the net are available here.
As soon as I find new ones, I’ll put them in my website.
If you find new ones not available here, please tell me where they are, so that I can add them to my site.
Can you send me translations, specific comments, more info about "x", can you explain me the cultural relationship between "x" and Dante, etc.?
In my website there are all the information I could organize and type into a website.
I’m not a teacher of Italian literature which has studied specifically problems related to Dante.
I don’t have much time to answer such a kind of requests, unless they are precise and specific questions about a single, short topic (and I know enough about it); my answers will be of course concise, for the same reasons.
Do you have any qualifications to write about Dante?
I’m sorry, but I don’t have any specific qualifications to write about Dante: I’m only a student who has studied him at school.
However, everything written in my site is what I’ve learned at school and what I’ve read on books, so there are no personal opinions or personal interpretations.
These are the only qualifications I have.
Can I link my website to yours?
Yes, you can, as long as your website is not offensive to anyone, isn’t illegal or contains illegal materials.
Moreover, please email me (webmaster (at) greatdante (dot) net) or leave me a message in my guestbook
specifying where I will be linked and your email address, so that I can check where my link will be.
Can I redistribute the material on your site? Can I use it to do ...?
The material on this site is available under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License.
Why isn’t this website updated often?
This is not a commercial website but only an amateur series of pages maintained during my free time.
Since I don’t have so much time to devote to that, while it would require very much, I can’t update it very often.
However, the info contained here doesn’t expire, since are about a great poet of the past.
What sex is "other"?
"Sex, other" should be used by any non-human device which is able to fill in a form, and to move indipendentely through the Internet (for example, by software robots (spiders) which browse the Internet and check for new sites).
