Dante Alighieri

Italian poet Dante Alighieri wrote Vita Nova in 1295. A combination of prose and verse, the book narrates Dante's own experience of loss, in his case of a loved woman. The narrative details how an upsetting event was transformed by the Poet into an occasion for maturation and growth. The book starts with a sentence in Latin, Incipit Vita Nova, "thus begins a new life."

Vita Nova - Psychology Associates was founded on the 750th anniversary year of Dante's birth.
