‘These essays, without exception, [are]extraordinarily accessible and a joy to read … readers will recognize in these pages some of the most engaging and dynamic scholars in Dante studies today … It does not hurt, either, that the subject matter is not only remarkably little studied given the place it occupies in the great poem but is also fascinating … O’Connell and Petrie have compiled a collection that should be considered essential reading not only for Dante scholars but also for any scholar interested in the workings of artistic inspiration, the timeless desire to create, and the human impulse to surpass one’s own limitations’, Mary Watt, Spunti e Ricerche (2014).
