Meet the Author


Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) is considered the greatest Italian poet. After the death of his beloved Beatrice—his ideal woman—he wrote a celebration of her and love in The New Life. His masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, is a classic of world literature, and describes the poet’s tour—guided by Virgil and Beatrice—of hell, purgatory, and paradise.
