Reviews

For all of us who have put off a trip into Dante's great poem for fear of getting lost there for good, Prue Shaw''s intricate, humane, lucid and precise guide into Dante''s world and time at last provides the longed-for map. One might even say that Dante''s readers now have a Virgil of their own.--Adam Gopnik
Splendid and enlightening. There couldn''t be a better introduction to the language of Dante''s poem for English-speaking readers.--Giulio Lepschy
