Publisher's Description

Midway upon his journey in life, Dante wrote a powerful little book about hell. No one had ever created such an elaborate architecture for the underworld before. The result shocked Dante’s contemporaries – and still inspires fear and mystery in those who read it today. This brief introduction to the text will introduce you to 50 faces of those who appear in Dante’s hell, to discover what the world looks like without grace, love, and mercy.

Author Bio

Peter Celano is an editor and writer at Paraclete Press. He has compiled several other books, including Lent and Easter with the Holy Fathers.

Editorial Reviews

Celano’s treatment of Inferno falls between a literary criticism and a study guide. Faces is an easy read but one that helps sort the complexities of Dante’s masterpiece. Celano touches lightly on scripture allusions and historical subtexts. At times, Celano mentions a scriptural connection but without assisting the reader with a fuller discussion of the allusion. However, the author gives other discussions, such as Dante’s placement of certain groups within the circles of Hell, a more through treatment. The book is well organized, beautifully illustrated, clear, and engaging. An informative introduction assists readers in learning from Dante’s world, and a brief conclusions adds a final Christian commentary of Dante’s thesis. This title works best as a study guide to a literature course or for Dante aficionados. Recommended for college libraries and literature collections. —Susan M. Camille, Catholic Library World
