"This is an immensely impressive work. It is what scholarship ought to be - perspicacious, readable, measured, and exhaustive (in the good scholarly sense of that word). I found myself continually delighted on page after page. Lovers of Dante and Lewis will find themselves 'surprised by joy.'"
- Thomas Howard, former Professor of English and bestselling author of Narnia and Beyond: A Guide to the Fiction of C.S. Lewis
"In this well-researched and thoroughly documented study, Daigle-Williamson provides overwhelming evidence that Dante's Divine Comedy served as both source and influence for Lewis's fiction. Her work fills a significant gap in C. S. Lewis scholarship, supporting the bold claim that Dante's masterpiece is, in fact, the model for Lewis's fiction. To her credit, the author has created a book that will satisfy, not only literary critics, but general readers and fans of Lewis's fiction looking for a deeper appreciation of Lewis's artistry, theology, and imaginative vision."
- Gary L. Tandy, Professor of English, George Fox University, Author of The Rhetoric of Certitude: C. S. Lewis's Nonfiction Prose
"Marsha Daigle-Williamson's book has helped me better know and appreciate my countryman Dante Alighieri. (Contemporary hermeneutics are correct in claiming that a work cannot be fully understood except retrospectively by the the fruit it produces and the influence it exercises.) In this comparison of Dante and Lewis, flashes of truth burst forth that illuminate the journey on earth for people today as it did for people in the middle ages and in all times. Both authors point to the same goal-the eternal-and offer the same map, Christian revelation."
