Summary

Purgatory, the mountain that straightens souls made crooked by the world, is Dante's most conceptually brilliant creation. Anthony Esolen's Introduction incisively explores Dante's theological universe: the nature of Purgatory, how Dante came to invent it, and how Purgatory is finally about restoration, liberation, and friendship. Special features, from an appendix that reproduces key sources to extensive explanatory notes, make this a particularly illuminating edition for both expert and newcomer.
