Extract from Dante’s address to the reader in Paradiso II: 1-7

And the cycle draws to a close. After three years of publishing monthly issues, we have decided to end this chapter of LPB as it started, with the stimulus that inspired our very first issue. Re-interpretation, after all, is no different from interpretation. O ye who, in a little boat embarked, / have, fain to listen, followed in the wake / of this my ship, which, singing, ploughs ahead, / go back to see your shores again! Start not / upon the ocean; for, if me ye lost, / ye might, perhaps, be left behind astray.

Playlist inspired by the stimulus
