    1. This has been a godsend for me in my reading of Dante’s Commedia.If The Complete Danteworlds: A Reader's Guide to the Divine Comedy was a perfect hand-to-hand companion that helped me descend the circles of Hell, ascend the cone of Purgatory and not lose my sight in the presence of an ever increasing blinding and enlightening Light, this other book helped me to gain perspective onto the whole quest.Like most other Cambridge Companions it is a collection of scholarly essays written by various a [...]
