Format: Paperback
There is little known about Dante Alighieri. And yet the profundity of his work and the extent of his influence cannot be understated. Having enjoyed the Divine Comedy (in English translation) as one of the finest works of literature I have read, I delighted in reading this account of Dante's life.
This book is written as a literary and a political life, literature and politics being the essence of the man. As the reader gets to know Dante, he/she also gets to know his work.
The pleasure in reading this book is heightened by the engaging and interesting style in which it is written.

Not just a bio but a commentary 21 Dec. 2012
By JG Bronson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book outlines Dante's life, as one would expect of a biography, but also helps put it in context by explaining something of the political world in which he moved. It also has commentary on the Divine Comedy, which I am reading together with a book containing only commentary and the work itself as part of my Great Courses reading of the work. I am finally appreciating the Comedy, which I got nothing out of the first time I read it because I had no explanation of who the people were that he met up with in his journey from Hell to Paradise.
