Publisher Comments:

"You will not find a finer introduction to the genius of Dante and his Divine Comedy than Wilson's book."---The Wichita Eagle
 
Fueled by a lifetime obsession with Dante, acclaimed novelist and biographer A. N. Wilson tells the astonishing story of the poets life and passions. He shows how the political turmoil of medieval Europe, the establishment of the modern banking system, and the rise of ancient philosophy informed Dantes epic masterpiece, and explains how Beatrice has influenced our attitudes toward love and sex. Written with remarkable dexterity and penetrating insight, Dante in Love is a brilliant and enchanting look at the life and loves of one of literatures towering figures, and a lively introduction to The Divine Comedy.
