Main Article Content

Juan Varela-Portas de Orduña


This article explores the possibility that the introduction of human exploitation within the labor process and the consequent appearance in society of the man-commodity may have left traces in Dante’s works. Looking at selected passages, the essay recognizes the problems that such a process creates for the rising conception of individual identity and for the adoption – in a still sacralized ideological framework – of the distinction between the public and private domains that characterized capitalism until a few decades ago.
