Review quote

Although I studied Dante s "Inferno" in high school, it wasn t until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante s work on the modern world. Dan Brown, author of "Inferno "and "The Da Vinci Code"
Kirkpatrick brings a more nuanced sense of the Italian and a more mediated appreciation of the poem s construction than nearly all of his competitors. "The Times" (London)"
