Dante's Reforming Mission and Women in the Comedy

by

Offers an analysis of the presence and significance of female characters in Dante's 'Comedy'. Commencing with the tabulations of women listed in "Inferno IV" and "Purgatorio XXII", to which may be added the grouping in "Paradiso XXXII", this work traces the symmetry and symbolic import of these clusters.

Transnational Literature

A simple, useful guide. J an a writer and have more than the basic level of understanding but this book still had helpful and insightful tips that I have picked up and used. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an entry level text on the subject.
