*I won this book through Goodreads First Reads giveaway. In no way has this influenced my rating or opinion of this book. Thank you to Goodreads and to Prue Shaw for the opportunity.*

Let me start by saying that I have never been a HUGE lover of poetry. Now you may ask yourself "why did I enter to win this book then?" That would be because I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try something new. I am glad I did. I truly believe that the reason for my lack of joy regarding poetry has been because I have not understood it. Prue Shaw not only explained Dante's poetry in a way that I could understand, she also added in a lot of rich history behind it to make it more understandable. I am a huge lover of history, so this helped to bridge the gap for me and brought me into the realm of poetry gently. I also appreciated her quotes in Italian and then the translation into English. This helped me to see the beauty to not only the poetry, but the language as well. It was quite obvious that Prue Shaw really knows not only her poetry, but Dante in particular. I have to admit, this was a REALLY slow read for me. Only because I wanted to make sure I was understanding what I was reading. This was a little above my education level. But once I slowed down, I was able to absorb the knowledge and understand it as well. I will be holding on to this book and re-reading it down the road. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves history or poetry or both! ( )

This book provides a good insight to Dante's Commedia. It gives background information and informs the modern reader of facts that Dante's contemporaries would have known. Ms. Shaw divides her book not according to chapters or stanzas, but, rather, according to themes, such as love, power, words, etc. I am uncertain whether to recommend reading it before, during or after reading the Commedia. I think it would be best to do all three. Reading it first provides the background information to understand some of the situations described. While reading the Commedia, among the information in the other chapters, the list of characters (Dramatis Personae) is a good reference tool. When finished reading the Commedia, this book clarifies some of the scenes and their meanings. I have not been compensated in any way (other than being given a copy of this book to review, for which I am grateful) and my opinion on the book is entirely my own. ( )
