Children's LiteratureDante Alighieri was a writer who lived in 13th century Italy and the author of The Inferno, a vivid description of a journey through Hell. Davenport takes the reader on a guided journey through Dante's life, from his early love for Beatrice to his exile from the city of his birth, Florence. He lost both his city and his first love, but Dante still went on to become one of the world's greatest poets. With carefully selected illustrations and skillful writing, Davenport provides a glimpse into the life of a great writer who continues to dominate the Italian literary canvas nearly 700 years after his death. 2006, Chelsea House Publishers, Ages 8 to 12.
