Dante's Divina Commedia
Dante Alighieri's 14th-century epic poem Divina Commedia has had an incalculable impact on Western culture, not least through its inspiration of visual artists. After all, Dante's descriptions of grotesque figures, fantastic landscapes, and inventive punishments virtually beg to be depicted visually. Now approximately 1,000 of these images are available free in Shared Shelf Commons courtesy of Cornell University Library's Divine Comedy Image Archive (DCIA).
