Poem analysis, please help?

Please help me to analyze this poem!…

"Of Beauty and Duty" by Dante Aligheiri.

It's a poem by dante Alighieri, a famous italian poet. I really need help on this. I know it's about a mix of romantic emotions between his wife and another girl he loves, but how do you think this poem could relate to Italy's culture/history?

Also, do you spot any poetry terminology? (Such as metaphoric language, imagery, symbolism, tone, mood, meter, and rhyme scheme)

PLEASE HELP ME, thank you so so much!

Well it may be wise of you to mention that it's a typical Italian Sonnet.
