The essays in this volume examine satire in Dante’s Divine Comedy, lyric poetry, and prose works. Alfie (Univ. of Arizona) and Applauso (Loyola Univ. Maryland) understand satire as “the genre dedicated to the reprehension of vice” (p. 3). The editors' introduction will be much appreciated since it both positions the volume within Dante criticism and provides a brief accessible overview of medieval European understandings of satire. The volume is divided into two parts: the first (four essays) focuses on the Comedy, and the second (also four essays) looks at satire in the minor works. Highlights among the essays include a reassessment of Paradiso 27 by Maggie Fritz-Morkin (Univ. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and a novel analysis of satire in the De vulgari eloquentia by Anthony Nussmeier (Univ. of Dallas). The volume finishes with a lighthearted essay by Arielle Saiber (Bowdoin College) exploring how Dante has become an enduring reference in modern popular culture and humor. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty.
