David Brockman connects spirituality with psychoanalysis throughout this book as he looks at Dante's early writings, his life story and his 'polysemious' classical poem The Divine Comedy. Dante wanted to create a document that would educate the common man about his journey from brokenness to growth and a solid integration of body, self, and soul. The book draws the resemblance between Dante's poem and the 'journey' that patients experience in psychoanalytic therapy. It will be the first total treatment of Dante's work in general, and The Divine Comedy in particular, using the psychoanalytic method. This fascinating study of Dante's The Divine Comedy will be of interest to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, as well as those still in training. Academics and students of psychology, spirituality, religion and literature may also be interested in Brockman's in-depth study of Dante's work.
