The author’s method in this essay is meant to be “objective”, that is, consistent with the philosophical conception of art at Dante’s time. According to this, it is the object of study itself, with its material evidence and originating culture, that determines the most adequate mode of investigation. The evolution of previous poetry points out as essential the relationship between argument and mode of expression, relationship which Dante defines as clarification and deepening of the meaning of love poetry’s vocabulary. On the basis of scriptural passages and, most of all, of the Vita nova, this appears to be the turning point of Dante’s poetry with respect to previous authors.
