The Divine Comedy (Italian: Divina Commedia) is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between c. 1308 and his death in 1321. It is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature,and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature.The poem’s imaginative and allegorical vision of the afterlife is a culmination of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church. It helped establish the Tuscan dialect, in which it is written, as the standardized Italian language. It is divided into three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso.
This book has been created to emphasise Gustave Doré’s illustrations rather than Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. Not all Cantos are included in this book; and those Cantos that are included; are solely to accompany the works of the illustrator Gustave Doré.
The Divine Comedy is in three parts, commonly referred to as Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. Each of these has been reproduced as an ‘App’ in various formats.
