The Ages of Man

J. A. Burrow

This chapter discusses the nature ideal and Dante's vision of the noble soul following its natural course of development, which is the nature ideal at its most elevated. The balance between the transcendence ideal and the nature ideal does not remain constant in the texts from medieval England that are chiefly under consideration here.
