Product Description

The Divine Comedy is widely considered as one of the most significant epic poems of the Middle Ages and the greatest literary work in Italian. Dante established the literature of Italy which provided inspiration for the larger body of western art and literature. This classic narrative poem has stood the test of time to give visions of the souls in Hell, Purgatory and Paradise through which the spiritual journey of a lifetime is represented.
Throwing light on the more fundamental questions of life through the plot, Dante initiates the thought about morality, fall of mankind, sin and redemption while surfacing internal demons within a tense political atmosphere. No other poet’s work has been able to come close to the pedestal Dante has reached due to this work. It is about enlightening, awakening and placing the reader in spaces which force intellectual engagement.

About Author

Dante Alighieri was an Italian poet, writer and philosopher. Born around 21 May–20 June 1265 in Florence, Italy, his work, The Divine Comedy, originally called La divina commedia, is widely considered one of the most significant epic poems of medieval European literature and the greatest literary work in the Italian language written till date. He was instrumental in establishing the foundation of literature of Italy. His depictions of Hell, Purgatory and Heaven provided inspiration for the larger body of western art and literature. He is described as the father of Italian literature and is often referred to as ‘il Sommo Poeta’ (the Supreme Poet) in Italy. The Divine Comedy was critiqued by literary theorists and philosophers who have cherished this immortal work through the boundaries of time and space as it translates the stark truth of humankind’s temporality and eternal destiny into a poetics of effortless beauty. He died on September 13/14, 1321 in Ravenna.
