Publisher's Description

Dante For Beginners takes the reader on a magical trip through the Commedia's Heaven and Hell. Well, this isn't exactly true. After an introduction to Dante Alighieri and his background, the reader meets a sweet lass named Beatrice, the love of his life and the subject of many of his poems. Then the reader explores other samples of Dante's works, such as the great feast, the Convivio. The reader is ultimately led through Dante's most famous and challenging masterpiece, the Commedia, also known as the Divine Comedy, with a canto by canto description of the entire text from Heaven to Hell. Characters, ideas and situations are described as they happen without the need to search through end notes or footnotes to understand the text. Dante For Beginners is a vacation through great Italian literature with history's greatest guide, Dante Alighieri.
