Dante has no equal as he sings of other-worldly horror and celestial beatitude alike. Yet for all our distance from medieval theology, the Florentine poet´s allegorical journey through hell, purgatory and paradise remains one of the essential works of world literature. At least 50 English language versions of the Inferno—the first part of Dante´s poem—appeared in the 20th century alone. If Dante´s Divine Comedy speaks to our present condition, it is because it tells the story of Everyman who sets out in search of salvation in this world. Dante composed his great poem in the spoken Italian of his time. He wrote about suffering bodies and human weakness, and about divine ecstasy, in words that have resonated with readers and writers for the 700 years. Ian Thomson´s lively book is a wide-ranging exploration of a literary masterwork and its influence on writers, poets, artists and filmmakers up to our own time.
