Fortean Times, Heather Webb The authors are much to be praised for not allowing the brevity of their volume to undermine or unjustly foreclose what Dante's text leaves to his reader'a judgement and sensibilities.


The Manchester Review Swift-moving, decisive, sensitive and suggestive


Heather Webb, The Times Literary Supplement The authors are much to be praised for not allowing the brevity of their volume to overdetermine or unjustly foreclose what Dante's text leaves to his reader's judgement and sensibilties.


Guardian, Nicholas Lezard There is something almost uncanny about how this book makes the work of a long-dead poet from another culture come alive... this book imparts knowledge as well as encouraging us to find it ourselves.


Independent, Christopher Hirst this work deftly explores aspects of Dante that were variously enlightened
