Poetry and Truth

Robert Hollander offers insights into the truth of poetry and the trustworthiness of poets by discussing numerous poets and critics. He makes special reference to the medieval poet Dante Alighieri, whose epic The Divine Comedy embodies elements that connect aesthetic, moral, and doctrinal truth.

At the time of this interview, Hollander, a trustee of the National Humanities Center, was professor of comparative literature at Princeton University.
