The Italian poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) is invoked several times in the work of Giorgio Agamben, often in passing to stress a point, as when discussing the political relevance of désoeuvrement; to develop a thought, as in the articulation of the medieval idea of imagination as the medium between body and soul; or to explain an idea, as in the case of the artistic process understood as the meeting of contradictory forces such as inspiration and critical control.
