Reviews

"Many scholars have commented on Dante's love of order and quest for formal and moral perfection in and through the Divine Comedy; this is the first book to suggest that the poem also deliberately incorporates, and takes pleasure in, error. . . . Provocative and engagingly written, this . . . is certainly a valid contribution to Dante studies."
