"Solid text, useful notes."--Sahron Ann Jaeger, University of Pennsylvania
"Sinclair's commentary shows his complete awareness of the extraordinary beauty of Dante's lines...and is remarkable for its concentration on the poem as an expression of Dante's own spiritual history. There is hardly a single beauty of detail to which he does not draw attention with an apt remark on its particular significance."--Times Literary Supplement
"I have adopted it. It is a good translation, the prose appears more accessible to undergraduates. The side-by-side Italian/English is very helpful, and the notes at the end of each canto are excellent."--Helen Regueiro Elam, SUNY - Albany
"It's convenient to have The Comedy in one volume. Good translation and notes. More economical for students."--Reverand James Collins, Holy Family College
"The introduction gives essential biographical and historical background and a discussion of the form of the poem, and the extensive notes contain new material."--Manuscripta
