This guided tour of the life and mind of Dante Alighieri takes us through all the circles of hell and beyond, far behind the scenes of his troubled, triumphant life. The renowned author of THE DIVINE COMEDY was reviled and banished in his own time, for he created a work of inspiration and satire so dark that it doomed his career and reputation. Powerful imagery boils forth as the narrators delve into Dante's writings and their meaning, drawing on the opinions of international scholars. Of particular note is the elegant use of sound effects and music, so often lacking in audiobooks. As usual, a fine effort by the CBC. D.J.B.
