Each chapter of this book begins with a summary of the action, followed by entries, significant verses, and useful study questions.

Pressestimmen"Drawing on Dante dictionaries, early commentaries, and many of the poet's chief sources, Guy Raffa provides lucid, concise information on all the major persons, deities, and creatures encountered by Dante in the course of his journey. This book is ideally suited for first-time readers of the poem, who will be able to consult Danteworlds for a wealth of particulars. It is an intelligently conceived, very handy guide which will appeal to a broad audience." - Deborah Parker, University of Virginia"
