Irma Brandeis

Irma Brandeis (1905-1990) was a Jewish-American scholar of Dante Alighieri. Her work "The Ladder of Vision" was acclaimed as a breakthrough in Dantean studies upon its publication in the 1960s.

In her visits to Italy between 1933 and 1939 Brandeis became acquainted with the poet Eugenio Montale and was the inspiration for the metaphysical figure Clizia in his poetry.
