Description
 
Dante’s “Divine Comedy” is the last great work of medieval lit. & the first great work of the Renaissance -- straddling two worlds on the brink of change. Its Christian message & social & political commentary of 14th-cent. Italy weave a rich tapestry of meaning & symbolism. Dante’s allegorical analysis of divine revelation to the unsuspecting human soul is conveyed as a subtle journey of wonder & self-discovery, made personal by characters drawn from contemporary Florentine life, mythology & the Bible. Flows from the pilgrim’s deepening insight into the workings of evil & moral choice (Hell) through to the dramatization of the nature & purpose of moral conversion (Purgatory) to the blissfully mystical ascent before God (Paradise). With 135 illus. by Gustave Dore.
