A wonderful book of Dante's The Divine Comedy. This is classic literary fiction. It doesn't have a dust jacket. The board covers have a pattern and the binding is black with gold titles. Dante's poem, The Divine Comedy, is one of the most important works of medieval literature. An imaginary journey through Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, the work explores ideas of the afterlife in medieval Christian belief.
