   schema:description "Jason M. Houston finds in Boccaccio's biographical writings a strong condemnation of Florentine politics and a harsh critique of Petrarch's political isolation, distinguishing Boccaccio's political and intellectual positions from those of both Dante and Petrarch. Reading the Trat-tatello in laude di Dante and other writings as works intended to promote Dante as a brilliant political exemplum to the city of Florence, Houston discovers the processes by which Boccaccio constructed an image of Dante that continues to influence the way that readers understand the poet's life and works. --Book Jacket."@en ;
