Robert Hollander is Professor in European Literature at Princeton University. He has published several books on Dante and several on Boccaccio. The most recent of these are Boccaccio's Dante: The Shaping Force of Satire (Michigan, 1997) and Dante: A Life in Works (forthcoming, Yale, April 2001). In 1988 he was awarded the Gold Medal of the City of Florence for his work on behalf of Dante; in 1997, honorary citizenship in the city of Certaldo, Boccaccio's hometown. In his younger days he wrote and published poems (a habit he has not totally abandoned).
