Dante and the Medieval Other World. by Alison Morgan

Barolini, Teodolinda

In this useful book Alison Morgan organizes and classifies information derived from representations of the other world, paying particular attention to prefigurings of Dante's Commedia. Not the least of this book's helpful features are its two appendices: appendix 1 is a chronological table of principal representations of the other world, while appendix 2 offers summaries of the same texts (now arranged alphabetically rather than chronologically), with background and bibliographical information provided as well.
