Product Description

About the Author

Dante Alighieri was born in Florence Italy in 1265. In 1301, a political dispute lead to his exile from Florence. Over the next few years he made his home in Verona, Lucca and other cities. By 1310 he had written Inferno and Purgatorio, the first two books of his Divine Comedy. He wrote the third and concluding book, Paradiso, in the years after he found sanctuary in Ravenna in 1318. An allegorical account of his wanderings in a spiritual wilderness and eventual salvation under the guidance of his beloved Beatrice, The Divine Comedy is recognised as Dante's masterwork and a landmark of world literature. He died in exile in 1321 and was buried in Ravenna.

I would say that this book is for people who are interested in old literature. If people are not, then all the little extras that are included in this edition will not be fully appreciated. A less expensive edition would be adequate. However, as a gift (which is how I received it) and for people who have a love for historical works (which is what I have) this would be the perfect edition to buy.
