Waterstones Says

In this fascinating biography of the celebrated early-Renaissance poet and thinker, Barbero examines Dante’s life and work alongside the great political and cultural changes of his time.

An international bestseller Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy has defined how people imagine and depict heaven and hell for over 700 years. However, outside of Italy, his other works are not well-known, and less still is generally known about the context he wrote them in. In Dante, Barbero brings the legendary author's Italy to life, describing the political intrigue, battles, city and society that shaped his life and work.
