About the Author

Born in Florence, Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) is considered to be the father of Italian poetry and one of the greatest influences in world literature. His masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, is the zenith of medieval knowledge and a paragon of poetic imagination. Its first part, the Inferno, remains one of the most popular books of all time.


Bravo for this new version of Dante... Bravo, Professor Nichols! * The Church Times *
Serious and thorough new translation of The Divine Comedy by J. G. Nichols remains a contribution to high culture without sacrificing an occasional foray into the comedic. * The Church Times *
J.G. Nichols devoted 10 years to his magnificent new translation of Dante's brimstone epic The Divine Comedy. All life is written in Dante's burning pages, and Nichols has done him proud. -- Ian Thomson * Observer Books of the Year 2012 *
J.G. Nichols has done superb translations of Inferno and Purgatory. * The Financial Times *
This new translation by J.G. Nichols, clearly grounded in a secure knowledge of and familiarity with Dante and in English verse which is rarely less than competently handled, is one that deserves to be taken seriously and will reward any reader who makes his first encounter with Dante through it. It is an intelligent and sophisticated piece of work. * Acumen Literary Journal *
Dante is my spiritual food. -- James Joyce
For sheer liveliness combined with accuracy and closeness to the text, it will be hard to rival. -- A.N. Wilson
