Summary

An in-depth companion guide to Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Companion to Dante’s Divine Comedy is a comprehensive in-depth guide for the student at any level, as well as the general reader. It seeks to unlock the complexities of Dante’s meaning and to initiate the reader to the poet’s incomparable aesthetic achievement that has made this artifact such an ageless classic. The guide is purposely designed, moreover, to appeal to both the Christian reader and the non-believer. To the guide book, the authors bring their combined experience of a full century with Dante. This revised edition was prompted by years of inquiries about the out-of-print original edition. It is widely recognized that the typical study guide on the market is drastically oversimplified and generally unsatisfactory. With their comprehensive, in-depth treatment, Aldo S. Bernardo and Anthony L. Pellegrini offer a guide that can serve both as an initial introduction to Dante’s poem and as a helpful manual of review. While the guide is focused primarily on those reading the Comedy in translation, the authors know from long experience that it can be useful as well for those who venture to read the poem in the original Italian.

Aldo S. Bernardo is Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of Italian and Comparative Literature at Binghamton University, the State University of New York and founder of its Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Anthony L. Pellegrini is Professor Emeritus of Romance Languages and Literatures at Binghamton University, the State University of New York. He served for three decades as bibliographer of American Dante Studies and as Founding Editor of Dante Studies for the Dante Society of America.
