About the Author

Prue Shaw is emeritus reader in Italian studies at University College London and the editor of the edizione nazionale of Dante's Monarchia and of a digital edition of the Commedia. She lives in Cambridge, England.


"Dante expert Shaw explains The Divine Comedy so easily and simply, she eliminates all trepidation in anyone daunted by his masterpiece... Shaw exposes the profound depth and art of poetry that encompasses so much more than language and rhythm... Read this book to discover Dante the man, the pilgrim and the poet. Then go read his greatest poem. He's well-worth the exploration, and Shaw is a Virgil-like guide." -- Kirkus Reviews, Starred review
